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. .
