I had a very pleasant evening here. The waiters were very attentive and friendly and the restaurant has a nice selection of food. For starter I had anchovies with vegetables, then for main course Oriental soutzoukakia (meatballs) - both were very tasty. Then for dessert I thought of a cheese board which I don't think was on the menu, but... More

The staff is really friendly and nice but the food is standard. Good but nothing special just the usual. Disappointed by tomatoes that did not taste of much unlike where we had eaten till then. Halloumi slightly too grilled. Very touristic but for the location the price is good. 1 starter 2 mains bread and water € 24

A busy 'local' taverna with a very extensive menu with some interesting dishes and even more interesting descriptions, for example Transvestite Lamb - turns out to be chicken but fun enough. The portions are fairly generous for the main dishes and prices are very reasonable but the food is fairly average overall in my opinion. When the bill comes you... More

I visited this restaurant with 2 friends. As students we are always looking for logical prices, yet great quality. So this restaurant was a really good choice for us. Although we went at rush hour in Sunday night, the service was polite and tried their best. We had a salad, three starters and tenderloin for main dish. Starters were great... More

The menu is a bit overwhelming and the service casual by U.K and U.S standards but we enjoyed a good meal.Decision about one course involved interrogating other diners about what they were eating,it looked good and was.It seems usual that desserts are complimentary ours was very tasty and we scarfed it down despite saying we were stuffed.Pleasant venue and staff.

Close to Aristotelous square and close to 3 parking spots, this restaurant offers an excellent view to the sea, especially from its balcony. Most of the dishes are very good, though you might think it is a bit expensive.
