A HIDDEN GEM

We found this restaurant while strolling through the town. It is a hidden gem. The vine covered walls, the lighting, soft music in the background, created a setting for fine food and service.

Really is a pleasure to dine here. It is situated up a lane on the left hand side of Papadiamentis Street if you are walking with your back to the sea. Large sign above the entrance which you can clearly see from Papa Street. Quite a plain entrance but when you step inside, a wonderful courtyard and nicely laid out... More

Pleasant ambiance. We went for the Greek menu options. All appetizers and main dishes were delicious. The house wine was tasty as well. Overal bit pricier compare to the other restaurants on the island but definitely worth of every penny.

Lovely Taverna hidded away up a small backstreet, a bit like a tardis as once in side up a small passageway it opens into a courtyard restaurant. Excellent food and huge portions can recommend the moist walnut cake! Very welcome hosts, great value for money lovely surroundings, not your traditional taverna, appears more sophisticated!

I was lucky to get a table here as they were quite busy (arrived 8.30pm), was given a good table in the corner, which I like when I'm alone. I ordered a 1/2 carafe of white wine and it was really good for a house plonk! Just soaked up the atmosphere and found it hard to choose from such a... More

Had walked past this restaurant many times on previous visits to the island, and decided we would check it out. It is on a side street off the main drag and is nicely laid out in a courtyard setting. With efficient waiting staff and a good menu, this has now been added to our "favourites" list for future visits. Best... More

We came across this Restaurant by chance as it tucked down a little side street. From the outside it looks like a narrow corridor but go inside and it opens up to a leafy courtyard. A meal for 2 with wine and beer cost about 42 Euros. The cold mixed platter starter was huge. I am glad we shared. You... More
