Very friendly service - no problem with our slightly eccentric order: my vegetarian companion had the cheese plate special as her main course, while I finally had something non-veg - the lamb shank. Both were excellent.

After three weeks of seafood and pasta in Liguria, we came here for our first dinner in Sifnos. We had the spicy goat and spicy mango chicken and both were outstanding. The appetizers were amazing and the setting and view are fantastic. While not totally...More

We ate here on two occasions; on the first we swapped tables after one became available at the front, overlooking the bay; on the second we called in on our way for a drink and requested a table for later in the evening. Both times...More
