“High expectations low delivery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

This place came highly recommended but it was a great disappointment on all levels. The only good things were the baked eggplants and the pasta with mushrooms.

“Very Poor Food and Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Service very slow and quality of food poor. I had chicken souvlaki, meat wasn't good. We decided to leave at earliest opportunity and pick up dessert elsewhere

“Downstairs surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

A nice surprise after a wander along the amazing shopping walkway.
Had mixed entree comprising of local dips and stuffed mushrooms, this was accompanied by rye and white bread. Variety of mains ( x 4) which were between very good to very average. House red was very acceptable at only 8 euros.
Overall 20 euro per head, which was extremely reasonable considering the surrounding restaurants.
Would recommend if you are after reasonable food, reasonable price and reasonable service.

“you pay for the view”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Food was average as was the service. A typical tourist restaurant that can ask too much money because of the caldera view.
