I will say from the start that I don't know why this restaurant is not higher up the rankings? It is off the beaten tourist marble walkway but worth the detour. The menu is very varied and the food is explained and served with an unusual passion. Family run, you will be told "my mother makes the deserts" (and other... More

I can honestly that this restaurant in its service and food is truly representative of the Greek experience. My cousin and I had the pleasure to meet the owners of the restaurant while at Brunch. They invited us to visit their restaurant, and let me you tell you it was unbelievable. From the moment you enter, you are treated like... More

Amazing! We were lucky enough to get in without a reservation, but I definitely recommend making a reservation. Farm to table, everything fresh, outstanding. Some of the best food I ate on my trip.

The service is fantastic and charismatic, the food is divine, and the overall ambience is cozy and authentic, with dim lighting to set the mood. Bottom line, eat here !

No views of the sunset but one of the best restaurants in town! Gorgeous courtyard setting, authentic tasty food and very friendly service. Booking highly recommended!

Had a reservation for 8 pm in mid July. When we came in there were few people and the service was good. We ordered five different starters, which ranged from good to mediocre. The ambiance out on the patio was nice, but when it started to get crowded around 9 pm the service level quickly deteriorated. Asked for the check... More

Arrived without a booking and were greeted amicably and seen to a table. Service was slow to take our order so we sat with just water for some time. The main course was nice, though I would prefer not to have balsamic vinegar on my rice. After waiting again a long time to be served we asked to see the... More
