We loved this place; excellent food, beautiful setting and warm welcome from Takis and staff. Go for the lamb kleftika and homemade bread rolls if nothing else!

Takis and family never fail to make us welcome every time we go to their taverna, which is every year. The food this fabulous and you always get more than you ask for, the freshly baked rolls with feta inside, the spinach and feta pies just melt in your mouth. Thank you once again

We went to this taverna three times because it was close to our villa (Birds Bay). They serve the traditional Greek cuisine of a good quality. Prices are low, location is lovely just on the beach. On Mondays they organize a Greek night with traditional dance. My kids still feel this was the best night of our holiday.
