“mixed emotions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

We visited as a party of 5 and it was quite busy. Basically the food was generally just above average but the waiter we had attending to us was below average and he was a bit arrogant. When the girls asked for the cocktail list he just shrugged his shoulders and suggested to have something else. Also when they asked where the w.c was he didn't look at them he just pointed. Each drink that was brought to the table was almost slammed down and when we requested some beer mats he flung them on to the table. Having said all this all the meals were ok/quite good and the price was reasonable. basically we would like to give it another try but would like a different waiter.

“Touristy, greasy food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

I try to avoid restaurants with touristy signs with big photos of food, but this place was recommended by a friend so we decided to give it a go. A mistake. Greek salad dry on the surface was not a promising start. This was followed by saganaki (fried cheese) and calamari, both of which came in a pool of brown, tired oil. It was late afternoon and not the busiest time, but the waiters eating and drinking on the next table and standing up every now and then to serve us is not acceptable.
