We have been to this restaurant many times, both in and out of season, and I am never disappointed. The choice of food is not as extensive as other 'local' restaurants but the style of cooking certainly makes up for that. The local style of food is given a modern twist and the style of service would be at home... More

This place was recommended to us by our hotel. The food was excellent, the service was very good, and the on-the-house raki was a nice touch. Great ambiance and very romantic.

We ate here on the last night of our holiday and were not sorry. The food is really well prepared and the atmosphere in the courtyard is lovely with a running water feature. As we'd eaten in Avli just across the pavement the previous evening and been slightly disappointed, we didn't have overly high expectations but we were proved happily... More

We luckily ate here on the second night of our ten day stay as we found a gem. Amazing food, beautifully presented with innovative cooking. After two great meals we booked a table for our post-wedding lunch and were really touched to see they had dressed our table with rose petals and wedding-ey touches , plus made a potato dish...

A lovely restaurant in the old part of the city. Very nice decoration and atmosphere both inside and in the patio, and very warm people. The food is just amazing. Everything we tried was exquisite. Traditional tastes with a twist that make this restaurant one of the best from all that i tried in the area during the last 5... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and they were right! Perfect food, good service and a lovely setting in the old town. very good value for what we had and then before the pudding menu came out we were given the most scrumptious coconut cake and a large jug of honey raki, all courtesy of them. Very nice, can't recommend enough

Our experience in Pigadi brought us bak there again and again during our stay. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was brilliant! The staff were so friendly and helpful, gave great advice on wine and they give you free dessert and Raki. We absolutely loved it here!
