My other half wanted a fish meal for a change so we paid Nikos a visit. Everything was a bit different from other tavernas. Bread and dips were unusual. Food was fine but perhaps a little pricey compared to others nearby.

The fried Zuchini was delicious and the prawns were excellent. We were taken into the kitchen to see the fish that had been caught that day and it felt very homely. Lovely family who run the restaurant. I recommend this restaurant.

This is a very pleasant family-run restaurant, with excellent local food. The service isn't fast, which isn't a problem in itself, but go to enjoyed a relaxed meal rather than a quick 'in and out'.
