“As excellent as it gets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

I leave nearby and this is by far my favorite place. Well done to the management, they got everything just right. The service is great, the space is real class, nice yard outside, excellent view to the sea, nice playground on the back for the kids, great cuisine (fresh fish is awesome!), the best coffee, free wifi, internet corner inside, nice decoration and open all year long. They even have their own recycling collection bins. This is a Greek who did everything right. I wish they were more places like this in Kato Gouves because simply this is as excellent as it gets! Thumbs up!

“Number 1 in Kato Gouves for food and coffee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

I asked for this place to be listed in Trip Advisor. I still don't understand why it was not listed earlier, as it is the best place in Kato Gouves for coffee and food. The owners make a real effort to keep the place in tip-top shape. It is open all-year around (a rarity in this neighborhood), and the employees are lovely. The kitchen serves very nicely-cooked dishes (I personally recommend grilled fish, lamb shops and their seafood risotto, plus any of their salads). Their coffee is first class, be it expresso, cappuccino or freddo versions of them. Whenever I have visitors, we end up there for food, as I know that we won't be disappointed. Free-wifi and outdoor kindergarten.
