Welcomed by friendly staff, you get a complimentary ouzo when you get settled into this cozy restaurant. Their appetisers are quite tasty, maybe not so "authentic", but worth having. Service is good and waiters are friendly.

The food is really bad quality, has nothing to do with Greek food and it's flavor or taste. I have been to Greece and in usually taste amazing but this was rubbish and nothing more.

Don't come here for food. I went with my wife and three grown up children and as soon as we tasted the starters I knew We made a wrong choice. My wife's moussaka had a little too much washing up liquid and my son's flour had a little calamari in it that was not calamari. It is called cuttlefish. The... More
