This was one of the best meals of our holiday. We were shown to an outside table, we were lucky as it was quite busy. We ordered drinks which were brought quite promptly, but it was some while before our order was taken, and again...More

A typical Greek restaurant, a bit hidden from the main tourist area, but worth the visit. Delicious food, reasonably priced and friendly and efficient staff! Can't wait to go back!

Usually price and level of quality are accompanied and synchronized. This is the case ! Also this is a classic Greek tavern and very friendly staff. But it is needed to make an upgrade to the menu.
