Delicious food, worthy of any large city but with Greek prices, extremely friendly staff. Well worth a visit when you've had enough gyros and souvlaki!

Perfect location away from the main strip of Kalamaki, the food is to die for as is the service. if you want something special without blowing the bank - this is the place to eat. You will not be disappointed!!
