The owner is quite a character, a bit pushy but funny and provides fresh fish, calamari, octopus (10€ the plate) right on the harbor. Nice place for a meal on the island, not the biggest quantities but okay.

A nice restaurant run by a nice couple more than 40 years. Octupus, calamari and red mullet were great. Friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices. You also can feed the sea turtles!
