This place serves double portions of everything and is probably the best grill house I have visited in the area! Great huge roasts including lamb, duck and other meats... read more

Had an outstanding meal there tonight dolmades to die for accompanied by some traditional bread omg. The staff were as friendly as you could ask for and nothing seemed to much trouble. Followed by the best meal in town for traditional fayre. Would highly recommend a visit but make sure your appetite is up to it. Enjoy

Lovely selection of potatoes, also generous portions. We were so full we could barely get up off our chairs. Thank goodness for maxi dresses! They are happy to give you... More
