Good original food

We past three weeks in Greece and this was one of the best restaurants we visited. Good food, Greek specialities but fortunately also good other suggestions we really appreciated. We ate here twice and both times the food was very good. Waiters were not always very kind.

We visited the place on a August Saturday night for dinner. The tables in the pedestrian street were full and since we had no reservation we had to wait for some minutes. The waiters were pretty busy and we had to point to their attention that a table had been free so that we can be seated. The reason we... More

Wasn't impressed with this place. The food was OK but it was all served up with attitude and the constant (and premature) clearing of my table really made me feel uneasy. I was a solo traveller but the restaurant was pretty empty (and it wasn't late), so not sure why the looks and the unfriendliness. Can't recommend anything because of... More

We had a beautiful meal their last night and I had the best mousaka ever! My husband had the sardines oven baked and he has never had fresher seafood. A must place to have dinner and the service was excellent!

Recommended to us by our hotel....good but not the best in Nafplio. And we didn't find the staff to be nearly as warm and welcoming as other restaurants. The food, again, was good ut not the best. With all the other places to eat in Nafplio, I wouldn't place it high on the list of "Must" do.

We've been to this restaurant on a number of occasions in the past, and really loved it. Never again. The last time we went there, the waiters treated us like dirt. so much so that we left without leaving a tip. We had, actually, eaten there a week before, and it had been fine, but we won't be going back.

The food is nothing special, just average. The service is awful, they seem as not to even care if you are there, especially the owners.
