OK place, on the sea front, music a bit loud, and very standard fare. Many much better places to eat, and much better food. They should try eating at the competition.

The food was OK, one thing to improve it would be to get new menus and posters around the place. It was early in season and would probably be better as it gets busier. The salad was 1 leaf of lettuce, half a tomato and a slice of cucumber not the best but others said they had no problem there.

Lively atmosphere but service generally poor. Waiters favoured certain groups of customers and neglected others, to the point where 2 customers discreetly walked put without paying for their drinks they were so fed up of waiting for their order to be taken.

This is an open front restaurant with friendly staff & delicious food at a reasonable price. The sea bream was out of this world, so fresh & tasty & the kids meal a good size too.

Zorbas at Makrigialos/Pilipsi is recommendable! We have been there over serval years and they have never disapointed us. The food is local and plain good. No fancy arrangements, just tasty and natural. I daydreem about heir grilled, tender lamb chops from time to time. The service is home-friendly and don't be suprised if you are invited to dance zorbas as... More

The staff are very friendly. The food is great (we ate here 3 times). Great souvlaki and spinach pies. The raki (free) is a nice touch. Always busy when we visited last 2 weeks in September.
