Just off the main tourist streets so a bit quieter. Service was quick, and staff friendly. However the meat portions were expensive and small and athough tasty, no more so than in other nearby restraunts.

We told the waitress we would like to have one meat and one seafood. She recommended and ordered food that was way too much for just 2 persons. We are small in size, only 50-55kg persons, how could we finish one seafood platter, one lamb...chop(came with pitas as well), one fish dip, one big bowl of salads, one plate of pitas and besides these, we ordered two cocktails and water. We don’t mind paying but over ordering and food wasting are terrible for first time visitors. Food was just average.More

Very good quality Greek dishes, such as moussaka (very delicious!),saganaki cheese, Greek salad, tzatziki, etc. Serves coffee and desserts, too. Very friendly staff, and...good value for money. Much recommended.More

Staff were so friendly and really welcoming. The menu had a lot of choice and the atmosphere was lovely. We had the mixed seafood platter which was very tasty. Some parts were a little burnt but overall it was good!

The ambiance was really authentic and the music made it even more special. Portions are big enough and delicious. To be honest lamb was not so good but beef worth five stars as well as Greek salad. Service was fast.

We ate here as a family of 5 for lunch. The food was wonderful but took a little while to prepare. The portions were large and the food was flavorful. The staff were polite and helpful with the menu. It’s a little on the pricey...side so keep that in mind. It would probably be a better dinner spot than lunch.More

It was amazing, not only the staff service but also the quality of the food. Moreover, the atmosphere of the place was so good, the guys singing and playing local instruments next to the catedral of the city was simply peaceful. I highly recommend this...restaurant to those who want to have a mindblowing experience, enjoying the local food, the music, as well as the excellent service of the staff.More

Excellent mixed grill. It was for 2 to share but plentiful portion. Meat was cooked very well. The Greek salad was fresh and delicious with generous cheese portion. We returned and had the seafood mixed grill which was great however the addition of fish would...have gained extra points with us. The shell fish was excellent however Orange cake is a must try! The wine was great. Wish they also served by glassMore

We were there on December 31st, my wife and I, (badly) recommended by the hotel. There was a beautiful veranda full of lights with live music and singers, but they placed us in front of the bar counter which had a nearby waste bin. We...asked if we could find a table for two on the veranda but they told us no. When other Greek customers arrived and asked the same question, they were moved. The evening was overall… embarrassing! The singer completely out of tune. The food was poor. The bill of €105 euros per head was disproportionate.More
