We (family of 3) went here twice during our stay. We dined relatively early (by Greek standard) and so the restaurant wasn't too busy. The food was absolutely lovely, we particularly liked the grilled calamari, octopus salad, and rabbit stifado. The bread and salad were really good too. We could not recommend this restaurant more on the basis of the environment and food.

The service was good, but the bill took an absolute lifetime on the second (more busy) visit. This is pretty usual for Greece, but after an hour, and with a crying 7 year old it was a bit much. Part of the delay was the massive complimentary extra's at the end of the meal. We were given a huge plate of watermelon, cakes, sweets and the obligatory Raki. Whilst absolutely lovely, it was a bit much by the end of the night - the bill would have done.

We visited this place 2 times in a row. Food was okay, first time we ordered a big fish and the second we ordered different plates. It was not exceptional in both cases but we did not complained either. The reason we went there the 2nd time though was the view and the atmosphere. I would recommend this place

Average food, with ok to poor service. We went btw lunch and dinner so there weren't many people around. Initially staff were semi-friendly and the food came out quickly, including the much commented on €3 bread (at least ours was fresh). Went downhill when we asked for the bill. First we got desserts and raki we didn't ask for instead - which is ok but at least bring the bill too. We waited and waited but had to ask again, then wait. We asked if they accepted cards and they did, however, we encountered something we've had a few times in Greece now. They bring the machine out but it's almost as if it's not actually connected. We tried two different cards and both declined instantly - didn't even send the request. I'm beginning to think this is deliberate to force paying cash so there is no paper trail for the transaction... could be wrong though. All up there are probably better options

Although the owner insisted that the fish would be fresh, we did not get what we expected. The food was bland. We got some very expensive, hard bread; which we didn't even ask for.

Not the best meal we've had in Greece, but the fish was fresh and the service was attentive. The Tarma was the traditional white but was not as fishy as we wanted. We were also given a range of complimentary desserts at the end. At €50 for two people it was also one of the more expensive seafood meals we had in Greece.
