We ate here every morning for the rest of our holiday and were very well looked after by the staff. The food itself is certainly one of the best full English breakfasts I have... More

Quite simple, found ourselves going there every morning for breakfast! A mini fry up for €3.75. Superb hospitality and a quite beautiful setting tucked away. More than happy to change items on the breakfast for my girlfriend as well. Can thoroughly recommend! You won't be disappointed!

This is a nice place to eat if you are looking for a peaceful meal in nice surroundings. The menu has a good selection and you can have both good quality English and Greek food. The beef stifado is a must and if you like ale they have traditional Greek beers from Corfu.
