Having been here several times over the last couple of years I have no problem in recommending the food or the hospitality. Pizzas are particularly nice if you fancy a change from local food. Had one meal in here that was really disappointing, however that wouldn't stop me going again as I have had at least 4 meals that have... More

Had a lovely meal sitting on the decking watching the sunset. Both were great. I had the chicken fillet with rice and salad and it was delicious. Have eaten here several times and have always had a good meal.

The only thing good about this restaurant was the quality of their forks, spoons, plates and napkins. The XXL size Greek salad that we ordered was really small. The food was just like any other restaurant's and no better. Not only the prices weren't very reasonable, but we also had to pay in cash because they didn't take credit card.

We have been going to this taverna since we starting going to Lesvos which is 18 years this year. We have also had the best meal in Petra and Costa his family (especially his mum) and staff are are great. They work hard and produce great food. Keep up the good work and see you all next year.
