Where do I start? The food, the quality, the host??? Vivi runs a fantastic restaurant that only uses local (home grown) produce that is in season, which culminates in daily menu for just 12 Euro. The menu is different each day and you always leave with a smile on your face and a full tummy - in fact on one... More

Just go for the 12 € day menu and you won't be disappointed. Friendly, simple family taverna with yummy home food. Assortment comes with salad, various starters, main course and desert.

It's sad to say that the food is not as good as on previous visits over the last five years. Maybe it's because Vivi wasn't on the premises, who knows? The food was bland and even the Moussaka was lacking in taste :(

This restaurant is not to be missed! Six of us arrived for lunch, four adults an eleven year old and a thirteen year old. We were hungry. When we asked for a menu, the owner wouldn't hear of it. "What you like? I feed you!" She brought out so many wonderful dishes we couldn't keep track. If she saw we... More

Its hard to find a place in Greek this good and this cheap. For 12 euro's you'll eat whatever is on todays menu. From beets to snails. And if you don't like that there will be something else on your plate. Wine or soda included. Enthousiastic staff.

as soon as you sit at a table a very helpful and with great sense of humour proprietor comes to greet you with a friendly smile. you do not need to look at the menu. If you select to let the lady who owns the place do the choosing for you, you will have a great culinary experience with traditional... More

The house recommends the full tasting menu and so that is what we had. Excellent value with about 8 courses for €12 each. Service was friendly and efficient. The only small negatives were : all food arrived about the same time and it could have been a bit hotter. Would we eat here again? Definitely but you need to be... More

We stopped by vegera last week and had a wonderful meal. For 12 euro you get an amazing amount of fresh, delicious food with the veggies coming from the owner's own garden. It was fun to be surprised by each dish and try foods we might never have ordered otherwise (for example, I normally don't order beets because they generally... More
