Elias is an old traditional fish tavern where you go for have a proper fish meal. The location disadvantage -not being in the sea shore- is compensated from the food quality. Fried fish is their expertise, it's among the best ever tasted; grilled fish is equally good. Salads, sea food, fava and all the rest is of high standard. Ouzo... More

We came here 3 nights in a row, this is beautiful hearty food. Dig in. The meals are very generous. Get the plate, you sort the kebab out yourself and its a wonderful experience. Would def go back here. They do a great take away, delivery or eat in. If you are staying around here make sure you go.

My husband loves Gyros and this was his favourite place for a snack! We ate here about 3 times and the owner was always very friendly and welcoming, bringing out olives and flat bread while we waited for our Gyros. My husbands favourite gyros was the chicken & pork and mine was the chicken on a stick!! We made the... More

Massive portions and standard tasty souvlaki, with huge amounts of salt. The good thing about this place is you can sit outside. Lots of locals go here. There are some rumours locally about poor quality but come on... this is a souvlaki shop after all. Not gourmet souvlaki but definitely not the worst kind either.

Typical Greek Gyro and Souvlaki (Kebab) restaurant, mostly used as for home delivery or take-away. There are a few tables in the restaurant's interior available as well as some outside seating tables (on the nearby square), usually used during summertime. This place focused mostly on quantity, rather voluminous portions and not on quality. The restaurant has been redecorated lately and... More

Famous for generous portion. Pork gyros is really nice. Always very crowded with local population. It does also take-out and home delivery.

The portions are huge, you'd better go there with a really empty stomach
