Nice Greek meze

We arrived to get the last free table outside on the edge of the veranda which was really nice. A really well spoken guy helped us and he was really knowledgeable and helpful despite the restaurant being full had plenty of time for our questions - of which there were many! We ordered 12 plates... read more

This place is always buzzing and regularly has a long queue of people waiting for a table; however i dont see what all the fuss is about really. The food is average and the restraunt itself is so tight and crammed in that you feel like other diners are actually sitting at your table. This somewhat makes a romantic dinner... More

Definitely one of the best restaurants in the area, we ate there three times ,the authentic Greek food is delicious , we couldn't pick a favourite as most of the dishes where so tasty, reasonably priced and the service is excellent as all the staff are pleasant and work really hard. The restaurant is always busy, and at times there... More

Second time here in Piskopiano and first place to go on our 'to do' list. Authentic Greek food, made with love and for a very welcone price. Try the fried courgette and the veal stifado when you're there. A place nit to be missed!!

Brilliant tasty Greek food, best meal I had the whole holiday and great prices. We weren't sure what size the dishes would be and so ordered 8! You don't need that many, the Greek salad fills you up by itself.

This place doesn't look much from the outside but walk past at 9pm and you will see just how popular it is, the queues to get in were phenomenal! We ate there early both times as had a little one with us so luckily avoided the queues, even then at 6pm there was a fair few in. The menu is... More

I have been visiting this village twice a year for the last 7 years plus. This has always been my favourite place to eat and having just spent another 4 evenings here it still is. It has been extended very nicely and you don't have to wait long for a table , but if you do , it's always worth... More

My husband and me love that place, no, also our children do! David and his family are the best hosts you can imagine. The choice of mezedes is huge and always fresh. The service effective and quick. During summer months, that In-Place is always full due to the quality and the low prices as it is traditional for mezedopoleia. We... More

Superb authentic local food. The restaurant specializes in Mezes with a tick list menu to order from we visited 3 times and everything was fantastic from the Salad to the rabbit with tomatoes.
