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

The best place in town for fresh seafood. Definitely try the 'special' Greek salad, with thinly cut feta, it's same yet completely different and delicious. Portions big enough to share.

We only ordered meze in order to have a lunch as quick as possible. However nothing arrived for the... More

This place was recommended by our hotel - what a let down. Food was very poor - even the chips were poor which is quite something. Calamari poorly prepared so our kids who normally devour them couldn't be bothered to finish the plate - same applies to my pork which was dry and thoroughly disappointing. Service was slow and off... More

Nothing special as sea food is standard greek seafood. But having meat in a seafood menu like steak immediately is downgrading the restaurant

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.
