Nice food and good staff. It felt a little rushed, but overall it is a nice place to eat.

“Lovely setting, but food and service only average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

Good outdoor seating, but waitresses were a little aloof and not too interested. Food was OK, but not great. A little unusual that moussaka was not on the menu, but claimed to be "today's special". 12.5 euros for moussaka, when other restaurants do the same for 8 or 9 euros..although to be fair, some charge even more.

“worst restaurant service ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

Unfortunately reviews are something i do on a proffessional level. This was awful, the staff (too many) didnt seem to understand what good service is. Drinks after starters, no offer of bread, and no apologies. The starters were good, the mains came and the plates were nt cleared from starters. We didn t eat all, but we were nt going to say anything, when questioned why we didn t like, after our responses we were told basically that is greek food. We were not offered desserts or coffees. When we asked for the bill, we were given a desert and told dont worry we wont charge you for this. Beautiful location fortunately greek cuisine and service is a million times better than this

“What a waste...saved by the chefs....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2011

As for the service this place is the worst I have been to in a decades......had better service at hot dogs stands in NYC....!!! The waiters was plenty full and was running around like chickens with no hen to watch over them....no system at all since the service was more of a coincident then anything I have seen....I think we was serviced by more then 7 different waiters and staff.... Wine, water served after the starters was on the table and half eaten....asked to help the waiters to reset the table by moving the plates from the starters so they could place the mains on the tables...!!!!
Table cleaned after the mains and we was waiting to be offered a look at the dessert menu and have a coffee after dinner....but no....nothing was offered or asked....
The food was great and that's the only thing that saved this evening from being a disaster when it comes to the dinner experience....
Avoid this place if you look for an enjoyable dinner experience.....with good service...go here if you don't care about lousy wait staff and want to have a good pasta....!

“Lovely atmoshere and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2011

Nice, romantic, very good food! We had a delicious mussaka, a special lamb dish with lemon souce and rice (very tasteful), a marinara linguine and a glass of wine. Not a cheap place but definitively worth it!
Situated in the heart of the town in a little square surrounded with bougainvillea trees.
