This small taverna is nested in a busy street but one can easily miss it if one isn't careful! The service is great and very friendly. The Greek cuisine is spot on, especially the moussaka.

This is a favorite among locals and tourists. The restaurant is sometimes called Elenis (Nikolas's grand daughter) after some legal dispute with the landlord of the building, but the kitchen is still cooking tasty homemade comfort food at very reasonable prices. We hiked 3 hours...More
