The moussaka!

Really really good food. I adored the moussaka and my husband said this was the best lamb he had on the island.

I have been coming back here for twenty years and the quality remains! The location is both central and quiet. The view is breathtaking. It looks like I will be a repeat customer for years to come.

Aktaion has been around for many decades and has a reputation for the high quality of its food and the freshness of its raw materials. Better to reserve a table if you wish to visit because it is very popular and can get crowded. Try the mussels with capers or a local recipe of pasta with tomato sauce, garlic and... More

Myself and my husband went twice to this restaurant. The food is delicious and the service is completely faultless. There is a great atmosphere within the restaurant. I would recommend booking a table especially if you want to sit out side- but the inside is just as beautiful

We stumbled across this restaurant on a late night walk. We were amazed by the amount of locals eating outside at 10pm. The following evening we struggled to get into this restaurant and subsequently ended up waiting an hour for a table at 10.30pm. It was well worth the wait. Every course was delicious. The shrimp with ouzo was simply... More

We booked a table for 7pm and had a table in the cobbled street. The view was fantastic and we were able to watch the glorious sunset. The waiters were very good and the food was delicious. We had the moussaka and the lamb which were both fab. An authentic Greek family tavern with reasonable prices. Worth a visit.
