I (we)have been there several times and never been disappointed. Seafood is absolutely perfect and delicious. And the best chicken souvlaki I've ever tried! Prices are...almost nothing. And honey-lemon raki!!! Evcharisto very much!!

The good thing about this place its they live music and the fast service while being at one of the nicest spots of the old harbor.Its central and famous but the dishes were small and really expensive and the chairs were really uncomfortable.It recommended for large companies of friends.
