Merastri Restaurant has excellent food, great vibes and decoration, and amazing staff members who love what they do! I recommend trying the "Skioufichta" local dish, their wine, and local pitta dish as a desert (cheese pie with honey). Highly recommend it!

We had a great vegetarian dinner for two. Although the main dishes are primarily with meat, the host helped us to make a good selection of dishes. Best vegetarian taste over the last two weeks around in Greece! Highly recommended.

Absolutely lovely staff and the food is to die for. Great wine. Everything is local and super affordable. We had the lamb and pork tenderloin. Both were incredible. At the end they woo you with their own sweet wine. Definitely go.
