Well located with a nice terrace. The menu is typically Greek. The products are top quality. The ambiance is good and the service is fast. Do not bother to order dessert, It's on the house. Although very frequented by tourists, the prices are very reasonable

Staying in Kastraki, this is a great place for lunch, located near the church. Simple cuisine with stuffed wine leaves, pepper and tomatoes, meatballs etc. Service remains personable in spite of tour groups.
