One of our best meals ever! From being seated to dessert, the dining experience was first-class. Our meal included saganaki, spanakopita, grouper and baklava - each item was perfectly prepared and delicious. The service was impeccible and the price reasonable for such a high-end meal.

We've been going for several years. Lamb chops are the best anywhere. Chicken is as tender as butter. The horiotiki salad is a must. The baked shrimp will have you searching the internet for the recipe. My husband loves the octopus and I would love...More

After eating here multiple times over the years, my first review still stands. Overall the place at best is chaotic, worse during tourist season with a staff that is totally indifferent to the eating experience and totally unfriendly. They could care less if you spent...More
