My husband and I ate here 3 times during our recent trip to stalis. The food was fantastic, the service fantastic. Jannis and his staff are very welcoming and friendly. At the end of your meal you are given complementary dessert and a drink.

It is one of the best restaurants in Stalis. Food is amazing, owner is very friendly, meals choice is great and prices are moderate. It's usually a good idea to order daily specialties, as they are very tasty.

This restaurant serves traditional Greek food of a high standard, always looks busy and has specials such as suckling pig on set nights.Kanji is a character who now runs the front of house . The food was very good and not too expensive.
