Very friendly & welcoming

The food was marvelous; we had squid, grilled octopus, lamb and lemon sauce, and a wonderful herb/greens salad with smoked salmon. For dessert we... More

The serving staff could not have been more obliging commencing with the ready offer of a starter sample to ensure it would prove enjoyable. The view over the harbor was pleasant when seated on the balcony and compensated for the rather bright and austere restaurant interior.

From the moment you take your seat at Argentina, whether on the charming balcony overlooking the fishing harbour of Kolumbari, or in thw winter near the cosy fireplace of the main dining room, you will have no doubt that you are being looked after by people who really know their fish, from the best taramasalata I've ever tasted, through the...
