Not our best meal but a nice Taverna, we both had different pasta dishes and plenty of it, wine was good and service ok, once served we were left alone. A busy place and everyone seemed to be enjoying their meals and a good atmosphere...More

Just set on a street behind the Main Street in Vathy. Has everything, meats, gyro, salads, Fish and pasta. A family of 4 had a great dinner for under $22 euro, exceptional value. Friendly and super quick service, will not disappoint.

We absolutely loved this restaurant. We dined here three times (twice in a row plus once more). The staff aren't pushy, at other restaurants they try to entice you in. When you order, they bring bruschetta type bread with fresh tomato topping. It's gorgeous. The...More
