The best thing about this place is being able to sit outside in the bar opposite(Carpe Diem) next to about five elderly locals who are sitting on the village benches and we are all laughing at the long queues of sad tourists waiting in line to get a crowed small space here.Please!!!!....there's at least four places within 50yards that are...

Visited this restaurant based upon previous trip advisor ratings, and we weren't disappointed! The food is incredible; great selection, traditionally Greek, and well cooked. The ordering system is a breath of fresh air; no pushy waiters hovering around waiting for you to choose. Simply tick how many of each dish you want on the pad, and hand it in when... More

This is as close to eating in someone's house as you will restaurant get here. No bookings taken , just turn up or queue across road to get in . It's communal eating in a way . Menu is almost buffet style . You order on a sheet and it comes when it is ready in bits and pieces This... More

Walked past this restaurant and it was always full! We managed to get a table the next night and went back every night thereafter. Such a simple idea, one menu pad, one pen and pictures of the food on offer. Great food! Friendly staff! This family have nailed it and the other restaurants in the village should take note of...

An unimposing restaurant by the split in the road. We passed in a taxi and noticed how full it was not realising it was the very place we had been advised to visit. We managed to get a seat each and sat down to choose from the Meze menu. We ordered five dishes and all were superb especially the Rabbit.... More

Tuesday seems to be the night to go as it tends to be changeover day, so it's a little quieter than usual. Once full, people queue to get in on the wall across the street, such is the strength of their reputation. Despite the queues, not once did we feel rushed with our meal. We were brought a pictoral menu... More

Thank you for the review.. We have expand already but we can't expand as much we want.. We know we have limited space but we try to satisfy all our customers... As for the finished dishes our filosoohy is that we want to have always fresh products this is why sometimes, some dishes finish.. It doesn't happens always... Again thanks... More
