We ate here for the first time the other night and will definitely return before the end of our trip. It was extremely busy and service was slow but Mano and his family were just so friendly towards us that all was forgiven. As others have said, it really is like eating with friends. It was Mano's birthday and we... More

Thanks for your kind review, sorry for the delay in service on your visit, but as you stated it was an exceptionally busy night, every night is different, and it is very difficult to prepare enough and not too much food, we look forward to seeing you again and having time to have a little chat with you.

Really lovely restaurant on the edge of kamilari in a beautiful garden. The specials are displayed on a blackboard in the garden and owners can't do enough for you. Highly recommended.

Family run by Sue and Mano, this beautiful little taverna offers home cooked smashing food. Vegetarians more than well catered for. Sue and Mano always have time for a friendly word no matter how busy they are. This lovely couple do a huge amount for the local wild cats hosting volunteer vets that visit once a year to sterilise the... More
