My wife and I, and a couple of good friends, recently enjoyed yet another excellent meal at Asteras. The restaurant kindly agreed once more to prepare a special meal for us. The result was overwhelmingly a great success, with the restaurant staff sharing our enthusiasm about the distinctive dishes. To start, we had a delightful array of Greek appetizers, consisting...

Very flavourful, split the sampler platter with my wife, had some good wine. Good service, cute location, went with a group of friends, and really enjoyed ourselves. Will return for sure!

Some of the best Greek food I've had on the island, excellent staff and always a fun, lively night out in the Old City Quarter.

Had dinner one night as a single and it was quite possible the finest restaurant meal I have had. Service was impeccable and the roast lamb was superlative. I normally can find at least one minor flaw in a meal (overdone veggies etc) but this meal had everthing perfect. I even stayed for an after dinner drink that I never... More

I have been there several tinmes and cannot get past the delicious lamb shank on the menu. The restaurant is popular, which is always a good sign, so reservations are recommended. The service is excellent, not only good but caring. You enjoy your meal with undue pressure and staff do everthing they can to make sure you enjoy your experience.... More
