We discovered this fish tavern, their wonderful staff, and we just kept coming back again and again. Great sea food, great service, good views to the old port, reasonable prices ... what else does one need!!

A very disappointing experience. The food was average, but the bill was what you would pay at an exceptional London fish restaurant. There are several eateries in the vicinity that offer better food at better prices. Don’t bother.

We had a lovely evening. Fresh fish in abundance, great service, we recommend you buy the local wine sold from the barrel. The baklava was divine. Having stayed in Kolymbari for the last week, this restaurant was joint first for both food, service and price.

Really recommend this place. We had the Greek salad, following by shrimp pasta and grilled beef. Best shrimps I’ve had in years, the way they cook the shrimps is incredible. The beef was incredibly seasoned with local herbs, veggies and chips. Also really lovely staff....More

This is an award winning restaurant with a well deserved reputation. we had their version of astakomakaronada and it was excellent. Similarly for the octopus. However when the use of a specific ingredient (kritamo) will end up with an inedible salty calamari dish then it...More
