We stayed right next to the restaurant and it was amazing! We saw that it has really good reviews on TA so we determined to go. We're the only lucky couple that got a table without reservations, so please make sure you do make a reservation fi you wanna go there. The food here is hearty and absolutely delicious.

I ordered the scampi on spinach served with a thin pink peppercorn... More

Had the risotto with squid ink and now my singular goal in life is to recreate the dish. Wish I had the recipe because I can still taste it in my dreams!

Came here for super which we decided to do family style with a bunch of appetizers to share. The Tzatziki was good as always. We also had the calamari which wasn't anything outstanding (similar to calamari you get in other countries). We tried the octopus which was done in a cardamon sauce which really grew on you the more you... More

We were lucky to be able to make reservations for diner. This taverna is so popular that you need reservations to have a place for diner. Food is absolutely fantastic; greek traditional cuisine with a modern twist. I wish there were more place like Aktaion at the caldera. The service was a little slow but this is undoubtedly because it... More
