We ate here 3 times during our holiday. We loved the food, everything we had was cooked really well and was hot and tasty. We couldn't fault it nor the service. We will definitely be back in August.

I really enjoyed the souvolaki but the moussaka lacked flavour and the rice was blunt and of low quality, grilled haloumy cheese was great.

The sitting is charming and the waiters are friendly and helpful. We had veal and Lamb chops and they were absolutely delicious. The cost is not bad at all and compatible to any... More

We were also asked to accompany one of the waiters across the road to "our bazaar to receive a special free gift". The... More
