Could almost be the best meal I've had in a restaurant The Greek are seriously good when it comes to lamb and on our visit we ordered the lamb kleftico, slow cooked overnight in a wood burn oven.

Good food and service but cats were a problem hanging about the tables and even stealing food when a child left the table. Part of the problem is patrons feeding the cats under the table (obviously animal lovers). A notice Do Not Feed The Cats would help.

We ate here twice in our two week stay and the staff were very warm and welcoming. The food was traditional and cooked to a very good standard. We were rather a large and noisy party of 9 and 3 of them little kids, but the staff were brilliant with them and nothing was too much trouble. Good food, great... More

I think this is the best taverna in Argassi and went a few times during my recent stay. The food is great, really authentic, delicious and well cooked. The staff are lovely and welcoming and the setting very nice. The prices are also very reasonable. I would highly recommend you go here if you are in Argassi.

As I've said it is nice quality food BUT obviously cooked well before hand as both times we have eaten there your food is delivered within a minute or two of ordering and there is a feeling that they would like there table back a.s.a.p. Only other fault is the closeness of the tables, obviously good for them but no... More

Very good food, good service, can't fault it really. Only draw back was that the portions were on the small side, so a starter and dessert were needed. Apart from that, excellent!
