Expensive, poor service and garbage food.

Non-existent, very slow and unfriendly service. Ordered calamari which tasted probably like the rubber of my shoes and the portions were minuscule, tiny Greek salads not fresh and no taste at all, stale bread, bruschetta with tomatoes not fresh again. One of the very few terrible meals we've had in... read more

Visited this restaurant with a group late Oct 2014, had the best experience of authentic Greek cuisine during my two week tour of the Dodecanese. Every dish was superb and the ambience truly special. Would love to return but there are so many places in the world I've yet to visit.

The food I think is the best on the island with presentation and service to match.It is hard not to eat at this restaurant all the time.but each time we go it seems we find yet another favourite dish.

This place is very popular especially with the sailing fraternity, so always best to reserve a table if you can. Food is very tasty and portions are quite big, so it is quite easy to over face yourself if you order one too many meals off the menu! If you are seated on the outside edge of the seating area,...

Nice location, good food, friendly service. If you on a sailing boat you can moor it in front of the restaurant. Nice soft music (some nights live). Free wi-fi. Moderate prices

it0s a good restaurant, with very good food, but it's very very busy. waiters are super nice and they try to do their best, but there are too many people, maybe, for the dimension of the place. i would recoomend it considering that we are talking about symi, a place sometimes too crowded!

We dined here on a busy evening. We were quite early and throughout the evening cars would pull up or people would stop by, see the owners and make a reservation. It soon became clear why. This place has superb fresh food and very friendly service. Our table enjoyed lovely fresh fish and superb local Greek specialities. Highly recommended but... More
