Cute family-owned restaurant with good local food and friendly service. Portions are HUGE!) So be careful to order lots of courses. As almost at every restaurant of the island, they offer complimentary desserts and spirits.

This place is the bees knees, fresh fish straight from the fisherman. Opening times are not clear, but evenings seems to be the best time; we chanced our arm and were delighted to find it open, so the choice was made for us. We were not diappointed. The first to arrive we had time with Nikos to discuss fishing in... More

shared a lovely fish meze between 2, lots of different dishes, lovely family run establishment, prices were fair for the quality of food, and the drinks weren't overpriced either, the olives were beautiful, small and sweet.

We went here with my sister and husband and found it such a friendly place to eat. The food was excellent and all the little extras were nice. The service and information about the food from Sylvia was excellent, we went four nights in a row and each night we loved the food, what a lovely family would certainly go... More

We ate here twice while holiday in August. If you like fish it is terrific. Well prepared, well presented, very friendly; and very good food. I am sure we'll visit again when we are next in town!

I was a bit disappointed with the service here we asked to sit up on the terrace but were told it was closed but there was no reason for this. The service was slow although the food was good. It was also the most expensive meal we had during our week .I might go back to give it another chance... More

We love this place, we had been before on a previous holiday and decided to return, Husband had fish and I opted for the kleftiko - it's the best I've ever tasted and my husband couldn't rave enough about his fish and the fried potatoes. Very welcoming and nice place.
