Just for the welcome I would wholeheartedly recommend Phillipos, Excellent service and well cooked Greek food, A really good Mousakka home cooked as far as I could tell, the Pasta was a little too oily for my wife but I found it OK. The usual Raki and fruit with the bill ( not just one ) Phillipos and his wife... More

Went to Phillipos as it was close to where we were staying, service friendly and efficient. food was average cannot say any more had better and had worse, the waiter recommended the house white wine as they did not sell bottled wine, wine not very nice at all, so can only rate it as average and would not return.
