This place is a little gem!! Me and my husband went for our first night out as a married couple, as we married in Zante! The food was elegant and stunning, it tasted simply amazing and we gushed about it to all our guests, I am only sad we went the night before we were leaving as we would have happily visited again!!

This is a beautifully laid out calm and peaceful setting for some truly amazing food, boy can this man cook!! The lady who served us is his partner and she had a very dry sense of humour we did enjoy the banter. The food was fine dining, excellent quality, not your normal Greek cuisine, more like a Michelin style restaurant but without the price tag. Thank you for a great evening.

Restaurant food at its best with attentative service in a quiet atmosphere. I ate to much (had 2 starters as couldnt decide ). Food was fabulous and dessert finished me off as well as the amaretto coffee.Good selection of wine. Second visit in 2 years it doesnt dissapoint, not cheap but you get what you pay for.

What can I say about the food that hasn't already been said? Not a lot, really. The combinations of ingredients and flavours are just amazing, and the portions are generous too. I love the addition of the micro brewery beers. The random, homely, quirkiness of the interior design is brilliant. Your host, Oxana, is a charming, knowledgeable and funny lady (with a stern edge ;-)) if you get the chance to talk with her. See you next year :-)

Our yearly visit did not disappoint us in the slightest.

As ever the staff are attentive and provide really good service with recommendations regarding wine tastes and types.

Chef's amuse were a great beginning to the meal followed by shared starters which were all fantastic with a specific love to the Pancetta starter which is braised for 8 hours and is accompanied by maple syrup and chilli!

The mains were all fantastic, well presented and cooked to a very high standard with a good range of wines, Greek and International - you will pay slightly more for the wine than you would at other restaurants but this is the norm when you are receiving much better quality cuisine.

Already looking forward to the 2018 visit.
