“Another Great Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

A pretty busy night for the restaurant, giving the restaurant a nice a bit of atmosphere whilst retaining that relaxed 'Greek dining' feel.

Great food at a leisurely pace, swilled down with decent house wine. We spent 50 euros between two of us having eaten plently and drunk lots. No complaints!

Will be closed for winter when we return in November - a shame but gives me something to look forward to next year.
