Our favorite spot on Symi island. We love the modern approach to the local cuisine. Good wine list. -1 point for the service. It used to be much better in summer 2018.

Way the best place in Symi. It s an all day cafe and also gourmet restaurant with fine music and smiling employees. You can relax, swim and enjoy your coffee or spirit or even your meal or dinner. Strongly recommended if in Symi.
