You can't manufacture this sort of charm. The garden is a rickety oasis, with marble topped tables, creeping vines and dappled sunlight. I can't speak for the other dishes on the menu but the grilled pork fillets and stuffed tomatoes were smack bang on the nose delicious and the local house wine, served in an impossibly cute glazed ceramic carafe,...

Came here for brunch. Omelettes were average, setting was nice. Service left more to be desired. OVERPRICED for what we ordered. 2 omelettes, 2 coffees, 2 juices & spinach pastry came to 40 euros.

The garden is amazing, the food is really good. Try the baked aubergine for a starter, with tomato feta and basil on top, and the rabbit as a main course. The grilled octopus was really good as well!

Had breakfast here when we arrived. Setting in back garden was very beautiful and relaxed. Enjoyed daxos and bacon omelette was so so, need butter, oil or something with toast. Had a very artistic feel to it from placemats from wife to awsome coffee sets.

The garden setting was very pleasant and the restaurant deserves its name as the air was pleasantly cool. The service was slow and there was no watermelon or melorako at the end. They didn't even bring us glasses for our water. We had to finish our beers first just to have something to drink out of. The food was over... More

It's a very charming setting in a garden-like space with lots of space between tables and a wonderful atmosphere in the evening. The service is friendly and it's clearly a family-run operation which always add a certain charm to things. The food was simply ok - we didn't have our best meal here by a long stretch - it was...

If you want to try authentic island food, this is worth a try. Waiters were friendly and knowledgeable about the food. Service a little on the slower side without being annoying. Large variety of local produce used in the salads and some unique twists on baby goat and rabbit stifado. Reasonable wine list Give it a try

This was the closet restaurant to our hotel, we walked past it so many times but never gave it a second thought as it doesn't look like much from the outside. We finally looked around the back and found the lively and lovely garden. We had dinner and it was good hearty food. We had a good evening and would... More

The staff were really helpful and the food was really very good. The homemade moussaka was delicious as were the appetisers - fava and aubergine were both good. I would not recommend the olives as they were very underripe and bitter. The choice of food was good for such a small restaurant and all very fresh. If it is windy... More

I visited here with my friend. Quiet night, only few tables full at 10pm. Prices here were 10-20% higher than other restaurants in Chora (even on the main square!)We had to wait more than 30 minutes for our one chicken souvlaki that had taken only 15min in any other restaurant in Chora. Apperatives and tzatziki were brought quickly though. Waiter... More
