Went here with my mum and sister and we got seated on the steps. We ordered 2 greek salads and some garlic stuffed mushrooms which were so tasty. Was reasonably priced with clean toilets too. Would recommend.

My son and I had spanikopita and bacon cheese pie that were fresh and delicious along with a very nice frappe for 13.5 euros. The place is pretty and surrounding area great for strolling.
