Nice food and child friendly

We visited as a family of six who all chose different meals. All the meals were great and reasonably priced. The owner was very friendly and welcoming.

The portions were huge. On the top of that we got free starters, desserts and raki-vodka. They know how to pamper their guests.

To be honest we were expecting more from the reviews we had read. The food was nice but not amazing and my partners lamb was very tough and gristly. The bill also seemed to be quite a bit more than elsewhere for the same amount of food and drink etc

Loved this place, Mum would have gone back every night given half a chance, think we only missed 1 night in our whole week. The service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble and the food was good.

If you are looking for the original of the Greek climate is not the place. We are going so-so - the tourists - quickly and without expression. I do not recommend.

Traditional Cretan food cooked perfectly using locally sourced beautifully fresh ingredients. Service with a smile and many free side dishes brought to your table for you to try. This is a family-run taverna with Kostas and Artemis and young George and Georgina all working so hard to make your meal a real pleasure. I have eaten here many times, and... More

Had a very nice time, following TripAdvisor reviews. Standouts: the dolmades (stuffed vine leaves) are exceptional. The gyros is excellent. Other dishes: I could take or leave the mixed fish plate, but my husband liked most of it. The service was warm, friendly and helpful.
