Dined there with friends last night. We'd read the great reviews and been recommended by friends that it was a "must not miss". So we booked for 9pm. Totally disappointed. A long wait after we were seated before ANY orders taken for drinks. A longer wait again for food to be ordered. No lamb dish available (they'd run out). The... More

Great little restaurant. We only ordered main courses as we have found servings in the islands very generous. The food was excellent. Service might have been considered slow but we felt it was relaxed and welcoming with no pressure to turn our table over like some other places. We enjoyed the pace but the food was the hero.

This popular restaurant, situated in the heart of the Old Town provides that classic combo of great food, great vibe and great price. My slow baked lamb and my friend was as tender as it could possibly be. Our shared Greek salad could have fed four people. Definitely worth having a meal here.

Not easy to get there, I advise to book in advance ! We finally got a table for 10.30pm and it was still full. The tables outside are the best but if there no any other option just get any table- you will not be disappointed . The very small and noisy restaurant,but the food was amazing! My girlfriend and...

Cute little restaurant, nice looking menu and food but poor service. Instead of telling people what they no longer have, they let you decide, tell you that they don't have it anymore, give you five more minutes to decide on an alternative, just to then tell you that it's no longer available too...

As other reviews have stated, maybe the expectations were set too high for the standard of food served here. It was OK but nothing to rave about. Prices were reasonable and wine good. The owner recommended the wine based upon what we ordered. This was helpful as I have little knowledge of Greek wines. We shared a plate of chick... More

I have never eaten more delicious greek meal in my life. What a shame that the owner is a bit grumpy.

Restaurant is good. We ordered some starters that were good but nothing special. the main dishes (sea bass and lamb in olives leaves) were really good. I have to say that I was expecting more based on all the reviews. It took us 2 days to get a table so maybe my expectation was too far high. And it didn't... More

We went to this tavern based on the reviews from Tripadvisor, and as indicated by everybody we booked a table. We were a little surprised when the food came as we were expecting something extremely different taking into consideration all the reviews. The food was average to good. Not something to die for or something very special. The menu doesn't... More

A very popular restaurant in the old lanes in Naoussa, we sat outside as it was a warm evening with the bustle of the shoppers, pre and post dinner promenaders. The food is traditional and modern Greek, very fresh and the portions are generous. They user local produce and even have their own wines. A really enjoyable, leisurely, inexpensive meal.... More
