Good seafood

Good taramosalata: good and fairly rich flavor, seemed to have been made with potato alone (rougher texture) and no bread. Fried calamari nicely done, hot, toothsome, flavorful and not greasy. Grilled red snapper had very good flavor, though not as moist as it could have been. Ordered chorta vrasta... read more

Came for dinner last night following guidebook recommendation. Was made to feel very unwelcome and not a guest at all. The waiter himself decided what we were to eat and started cooking it before we'd even ordered. What he had chosen for us was the most expensive item on the menu. When we wanted something different he tried to spin... More

The seafood was excellent. The owner, George, took us back to the kitchen and showed the fish available that night. He recommended the grilled sea bass and it was excellent. Beautiful crisp skin and the meat was perfectly cooked. He recommended the steamed vegetables and the fried crawfish tails The crawfish was superb. The red wine was the best we... More

After 5 memorable visits, I owe Arapakos a glorious review for his mastery of seafood. His team and himself are specialists who can honestly guide you to choose among tasty and fresh fish. They go the extra mile to help you savor the dish by visiting your table. Generous till last minute offering treats. Classy ambiance. Year after year he... More

Right on the water front, nicely decorated little restaurant, We spend NEW Years Eve there with a set menu and bottle of wine for 3, which was really reasonable, and to our amazement the food was excellent, you can see that the chef really enjoys what he does. The staff and owners very friendly, would definately eat there again.

Near the port this restaurant is a web for tourists. Payable bread and water (they haven't got tap water) fresh seafood is really expensive. Check the high of fish before. Calamari was incredibly good so the service.

I'd give it a 3.5 if I could. Better than average, but not "very good." We had a pleasant dinner here at at the recommendation of our hotel. The service was good. They seem to specialize in fresh seafood, and the display case looked wonderful. The seafood was, in fact, impeccably fresh and tasty, but it was just overcooked. No... More

A good place for fish and have compaints regarding the food at all. However please make sure you know the price in advance as we were mislead regarding the true cost of what we ordered which left a sour taste. Realise it was end off season but no need to pull a fast one!

Enjoyed a sunny day lunch on the patio here as a recco from our hotel owner. Great tzatziki! Fresh mussels were very tasty and beer was cold.
