A very nice, pitoresque and cozy restaurant with a splendid view from the Caldera with good food and affordable prices. The staff is very gentle and the food was great. I ate lamb and it was really delicious. Totally recommend it for a nice and typical meal .

We were drawn to this restaurant as it looked so traditional from the outside but its menu was amazing. We are vegetarians and loved the different dishes here. It was definitely one of our favourite meals and a great location for people watching.

Delicious, local food. So good, we ate here twice! Our hotel recommended this place and it did not disappoint. The fish was fresh and the offerings have all been perfected over the last 90 years of their existence. The Moussakas was outrageous!

It has been open for a long time and the staff are very experienced. Would recommend booking otherwise seated inside with no view. Food was good, limited drinks menu for kids, but otherwise great!!

We came to this restaurant based on the trip advisor recommendations and it did not let us down! The food was delicious and the portion sizes were generous. We went back twice during our 4 night stay because it was that good. I would highly recommend!

This place did not look much as we passed during the day but went back in the evening and just managed to get a seat. Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere as the sun was setting and after.
