We ate tasteful seafood. The swordfish was fresh and in big portion while the risotto of cuttlefish was amazing. The starters was quite good. We enjoyed our meal at a very nice sea view area. The staff was polite and we were served quite fast. The cleaning was very good. A highly recommended tavern.

What's not likeable? Great prices, on the main road towards Nydri, no difficulty parking- walk in- walk out..
