“Rushed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

My daughter and I chose to grab dinner here one evening because of the location of the restaurant. We didn't have a reservation and the staff seemed to have a hard time seating us even though numerous tables were open. From the time we sat down, it appeared that the goal of the staff was to seat customers, serve them quickly, and then hurry them out the door. This was the opposite of any restaurant we ate in for the entire 2 weeks we were in Greece. They forgot my drink and I had to remind them 3 times to bring it. The food was just average. The only highlight to the evening was that the famed Pelican raced through the restaurant causing quite a stir.

“Best greek food ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

I ate there last night with my partner and I want to tell everybody in Mykonos that they should not miss that restaurant! The local traditional atmosphere is authentic,the waiters are very fast and the food..it was great.We had two of the dishes of the day:pasta with octopus and risotto with shrimps and vegetables.We shared the two dishes and we both agreed that it was one of the best greek food we ever ate.We will go there again tomorrow! I'll have again the risotto and I'll also try something else.

“Fresh and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We had our lunch here when our cruise ship docked in Mykonos back in June. The seafood was one of the tastiest we ever had! It was fresh and grilled to perfection. (You select the seafood first and then they will weigh it.) From the menu, we tried their steamed mussels (14e) as well as their grilled octopus (9e) –- all excellent! The house wine was surprisingly good (7e), and their beer (3,75e) refreshing. We loved everything we ordered! We would go back to Mykonos just to eat here again. (They take credit cards, including Amex.)

“Don't bother reserving...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

We booked a table for dinner, which we confirmed with our hotel before leaving for the night. However, on arrival the first waiter we spoke to claimed to have no record of the reservation. The second guy did recollect it, but sadly there was no table available. Typical, sadly, of the experience that you have as tourists in a few places in Mykonos - if you're not Greek, or with Greek hosts, you get second rate service.
