“Very Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Well worth the calf strain walk up from the town.
Very friendly genuine staff from entry to leaving the premises.Very reasonable prices,only ate basic really,nice fresh cheesy garlic bread freshly baked for starters was very tasty.we had main courses of the rack of ribs in bbq sauce with home cooked chips which were both plentiful and tasty and also the pizza a la chef which had everything on which was both plentiful and tasted like a properly seasoned pizza.we finished off with the kadaiffi and cream which was nice and it was all washed down with the local rose which was nice enough.
complimentary cocktails too and all for less than €30.00.

“great view, good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

First, I would like to correct the name of the place.. it is "Esperos".
We have been there early in the evening, so there were few customers. The service was very friendly, one waiter tried to entertain us in Russian lanquage. The food was generally ok, the meat dish was a bit oversalted though to my taste. The house red wine was very tasty. We got complimentary drinks. All in all - worth to visit. The balcony view is great!
