Good food and service:)

Nice people run this tavern. You can expect quick service and good portions. Greek salad was the biggest we ever had. Nice dessert from the house at the end. Reasonable prices.

This restaurant was recommended by the owner of the hotel where we stayed for a night. It is a restaurant with a long tradition. We had a Greek salad and red mullets. The food was very tasty and well presented. The view was fantastic. The price was reasonable. Unfortunately the service was extremely slow and very chaotic.

Friendly attentive staff and very nice food. You also get the option to choose your seafood before it is cooked. Very much worth a visit.
