Good food

We were seated upstairs but sadly not with a sea view, the food was very nice but rather a lot of cooking smells as we were facing the kitchen area. Don't be put off, the food was good and the staff pleasant, we just went on a busy evening.

The staff and very welcoming and friendly...in fact they made our holiday wonderful. hopefully friends for life and we hope to see them again sometime. Thanks... More

We visited in early evening and were sat right next to another table of 6 (presumably to make the otherwise empty restaurant look a bit busier) but it felt cramped and seemed unnecessary. The waiter managed to drop a bottle of beer down my back (as a result of the lack of space) and then very spent the next 10... More

We returned here after a very long 7 year break and were immediately recognised by our main man! After he commented how tall our daughter had become we gave him a copy of the photo we took of him holding her back when she was five! Great food (as always). Omg I loved the Kleftico and the village sausage. We... More

We came upon this restaurant as my friend was looking for calamari and decided to stay for the seafront view and the breezy upper area. We were greeted by such friendly staff members who genuinely made us feel welcome and though our custom was appreciated. My friend has a mixed grill and I had a salmon parcel.. Both amazing!, food...
