Good food excellent wines but great service make this our restaurant of choice in Kolymbari. We particularly like the draft chilled tap water served endlessly. Have often spent 3 hours over dinner through choice not of necessity.

Food is actually really good, but if your restaurant is trying to be best in town, you gotta listen to your customers. Even you (owner) have different opinion, it's better not to start arguing with us. All the best but we don't meet anymore.More
