This large restaurant has good views over the port. The menu is large and one orders by ticking boxes on a menu list. Some of the items that we ordered were good, others were not. This restaurant seems to pride itself on serving oversized portions of everything, rather than quality. The seafood pasta for 1 could have easily fed 4!!... More

Very tasty dishes, very nice dessert(on the house), huge portions, low prices and friendly staff. Also If you get to sit near window or outside you have a very nice view of Koule castle.

Some time ago this was one of the good fish restaurants for me. Recently we went several times and I was disappointed from the food quality. Maybe because this taverna is always busy place and they rely on the tourists but the quality and the service is not what it was. My favorite shrimps saganaki was terrible, the squids were... More

Our first time we really didn't expect to be treated with such huge dishes. We ordered 3 dishes, fresh small squid, kalamari and spaggetti with sea food. No matter how tasty these dishes were, twe just couldn't have them. So next time we'll order 1 or 2 dishes. On top of that we were treated with 2 plates of fruits... More

Full disclosure: I did not intend to eat here, but the another restaurant, highly recommended by friends, is only open on weekends during the winter. I wandered in to this restaurant as a convenient alternative. And what a wonderful discovery. The prices are very reasonable; the seafood, fresh and delicious; the service, friendly and quick. I would definitely return.

Simply one of the top fish taverns in the island. Don't leave the city without paying a visit. Tasty dishes and also relatively cheap.
