“Wonderful food - wonderful host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Christina is such a friendly, humble and lovely host. Her food is absolutely amazing. The roof terrace is very nice - but be careful not to be too loud during "siesta", (3-5pm in summertime), as there are apartments very close and the residents are a bit unhappy with crying babies!!

Everything on the menu was excellent. You must try the fava beans, grilled calamari, aubergine dish (steamed with tomatoes) and dolmades. The dessert halva (with semolina) was great also.

Definitely will go back and recommend!

“Great place with local flavor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Crowded after 10 PM. Full of locals, nice house wine, excellent shrimp saganaki and fresh calmari. Sit up stairs and enjoy the food and the conversation of friends and family.

“Amazing food, great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Ate twice at this taverna, run by the very charming Christina. The upstairs open terrace is delightful, and we were well looked after by Christina and her staff. The stuffed tomatoes (gemista) are to die for!

“Last night find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

I stumbled upon this taverna on the last night on Hydra. It was packed with people clearly enjoying the food and the environment. Lovely, simple, honest food in a warm and friendly environment. Lovely.
