We were looking for a restaurant in the heart of Plakka and there it was. We had the « Pita Gyros » and it the food was delicious, and the portions were generous as in most Greek restaurants. It is located in a shopping street which we...thought was really convenient for lunch. We recommend!More

Not very well located if you go for dinner, as it’s in the middle of a shopping street. The food was not fresh. Waiters not wearing properly the masks.

Delicious food and very prompt, friendly service. We had a variety of starters including spicy cheese dip, hummus, tzatziki served with pitta. This was followed by mixed meat gyros. The meat was tender and flavoursome and the chips were homemade like the chips we had...as children.More
