“Red or Rosé?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

This taverna, on the site of a former lemon grove, has attained status amongst Greeks and foreigners alike. Having dined there on many occasions at different seasons I have seldom been disappointed.Prices are reasonable and competitive. A big plus is that it is open all the year: cosy and warm on a chill autumn evening, beautiful summer-sunset views from the newly built annexe on the other side of the narrow street. Definitely a well-run family establishment with tasty Greek fare served in large portions and a willing and helpful proprietor. The head "waiter" is a great character. Meals have always been at the top end of the scale, but occasionally have disappointed to a degree. That is the problem with a high class establishment. It's not always possible to maintain standard and service 100%. If you order house wine make sure that you get what you request. Once I was served up a poor rosé instead of red. "But" I was told "the red is more expensive". Hello, we are talking about €0,50! Obviously they wanted to get rid of the rosé on an unsuspecting customer. but at least it was an original excuse. The lamb kleftiko is a must, but you have to order in advance. Their oven prepared dishes are fantastic. Fresh fish is tastily prepared but not always available. This depends on what the fishermen have brought in. You can be sure that when they have fish it is fresh and has not been lying around for days. Greeks take little notice of smoking regulations, but the staff really shouldn't smoke near where food is being prepared. .

“Good food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

The choice of food and service is excellent. We have eaten here many times when we have returned to Batsi and are glad to say it doesn't change. Lovely terrace overlooking harbour which makes it more special.

“Unbeatable view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

The view of the Batsi harbor from the restaurant terrace is outstanding. Very good multi-lingual menu and service. Broad ranging menu. Many traditional Greek delicacies and other cosmopolitan touches. The traditional Greek delicacies are quite good, some of the others (e.g. Pasta) are mediocre. Good wine selection with emphasis on very good Greek ones. The local Andros red wine is cheap but not very appealing.
