Just a short walk from the Caesar Hotel this quaint restaurant serves authentic greek food. The lamb gyro was very tasty as was the spanakopita and the baklava. The owner takes pride in his restaurant which shows in the quality of the food he prepares.

Went there as a suggestion from my hotel reception desk. There was only one guy for everything, cook, waiter... As expected, it took very long to have dinner. Despite this, we had quite a good dinner.
