Wonderful atmosphere in an open air setting that is quiet by day, lively all night with the sound of happy diners. Recommend!

Very nice chicken souvlaki, maybe one of the nicest I 've eaten but we did not like the behaviour of some of the staff. There was "discretely" scaring away cats that were around, talking in an impolite way in front of customers. Some of them...More

We had a lovely dinner of salad, local meat & fried potatoes in the picturesque village square. We were the only tourists, all the other tables were big family groups of locals. Very nice meal.

Excelent setting in village square beneath the church makes you feel you are part of some old Greek play. And the best part of it are souvlaki - free range chicken, lamb, pork, and the home made potateo fries-old fashion a must to taste! Visited...More

We can hardly resist to come and eat lamb souvlakis in this wonderful tavern. The small greek salad is quite huge and delicious. Having dinner in this place in front of the Atsipopoulo church is very relaxing and we grantly appreciate the quality of the...More
