Well worth the trip into the mountains. This place serves a suprise menu consisting of different courses and types. We had a lovely lunch with all types of salads, meats and vegetables. If you want to taste local food be sure to visit this place it doesn't serve all the default souvlaki and such. Also compliments to friendly elderly lady... More

And finally - prices are very low! I checked below "mid-range" only in order to think that here is a sort of cozy restaurant,... More

We visited this restaurant based on the reviews published here and were happy to experience Vegera. This small and simple restaurant serves beautifully cooked local dishes. Choose one of their set menus and just enjoy. The food is served slowly, just as it should be to let diners appreciate the local specialties.

All food is local and home made. You get what's in today's kitchen, and it's great. Whole meal is only 12 Euro per person. Service is nice and friendly. Highly recommend!
