We stayed in Koutoulafari which is full of beautiful tavernas, so we were a little spoilt! we visited The White Lion on a visit in to nearby Hersonissis - the menu is overpriced and the food quality and service was average compared to other places that we visited.

Went here on my last day to get breakfast. Excellent meal with British bacon and Heinz beans - set me up for the return journey. I would certainly recommend a visit.
