We had a nice meal here, it was nothing special just a well cook grill meal, we had a shared starter (as we spied the portions big) and both had Sardines as a main lots of Sardines, bread and olive oil lovely, oh and of course wine. Service was good slow but ok, we were in no rush. Its Situated in the back streets there are a few Taverna's there all busy.

A Good evening meal we would go again.

Busy restaurant, with plenty of staff - we were invited to inspect the kitchen and the food offerings before we sat down. All looked really good and home cooked. Service was slow (it was busy, but plenty of staff), the wine was very mediocre and the food was nowhere near as good as it looked! Lamb was gristly and very little decent meat. Ditto the pork (which we both questioned whether it was even pork it was that bad!

The food is incredibly tasty, I would recommend the spit roasted pork with a side salad. The family that own and run the restaurant are extremely friendly, feels really homely, Nikos (the chef and father) even came out to deliver our food and tell us a little about it.

p.s. I accidentally marked the previous review from Michelle as being helpful which was an error that I can’t undo. She eventually doesn’t understand how kitchen prep works... the food is cooked to order and extremely fresh. Seriously worth a visit.

Thanks Nikos & family.

Ok, what can I say, it’s spite roasted food that has been cooked that afternoon.
Let me explain, the food comes out extremely quickly, so there is not a possibility for it to be cooked there and then. This is the case for most of the restaurants, so once you have got your head around that and you don’t mind the sound of “ping” that’s the microwaves going.... you’ll be fine.... I’m not sure I’d go here again....

This is a very popular eating place, and for good reason. Food is always good. Service can be slow if there is a crowd in, as is usual, so try going earlier than the locals. Defintely worth a go.
