“Hard to find in the back streets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Well worth looking for. The food was excellent with a menu to suit most visitors. We had a seafood spaghetti and meatballs, both were very tasty. The service is good and the staff very attentive.

“Super outdoor restaurant with delicious food and great friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

It is almost impossible to get a table at this restaurant - it is so popular.
Once you have been and tried the food and drinks (and the service) it is easy to understand why.
The setting is really superb and the busy atmosphere just adds to this.
The food is really delicious and the Greek wines also very good.
Try it - you will not be disappointed!

“Finesse has fallen”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

The standard of food has fallen. It's not bad but lacks the final touches of last year. The staff remain attentive, if somewhat fake. A good plce to watch the beautiful people go past. The pasta is good.

“terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Another restaurant that tries to be Italian without being it.
Overcooked pasta with no flavor, very dry meat.
Service is terrible: all waiters think they are Brad Pitt and u can tell they are only work for the tips

“Awful and not worth the money ....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

My husband and I ate here whilst in Mykonos. We saw that they had a Trip Advisor rating/certificate laminated with their menu and so assumed it was a good place to eat.

The menu sounds more appetising than the food itself. Personally, I found it greasy and sloppy with many dishes laced with cheese. A lot of the dishes were also not traditional Greek food - my husband and I have travelled around Greece and so we are quite fussy about what we eat when in Greece. My husband has also lived in Greece and so I think has a 'good nose' for good proper food. He was kind enough to say the food was average, whereas I thought it was really poor.

I am so surprised with all the positive reviews, as my experience was anything but. Apologies to the restaurant, but I will not be recommending you to others. There are far better restaurants/tavernas in Mykonos which are definitely worth the visit and the money.
