We were fortunate to attend their final Greek Night of the season. For 40 Euro per couple we receive 9 meze dishes, a half litre of wine and excellent entertainment. Front of house, Maria, was brilliant. A great night!

What a fantastic restaurant, great food and stunning views of the sea. Maria is just brilliant both at cooking and greeting everyone. But her cookery book while you’re there!
