There is always a lot of people. However, the place also offers, if you wait a bit. But the wait is worth it. The perfect interior in the traditional style. Courteous and quick staff. And wonderful hosts. Always Greek hospitality and welcome. Come into the courtyard of the restaurant, there is the beauty. Tables in the garden, left right at... More

Coming from a Greek background we eat a lot of meat especially on charcoals. This place served us some of the best meat I have ever eaten in my life. Service was great, people were friendly.

Food here is excellent as is the atmosphere. Staff are very friendly! Tourists and locals both eat here. Best to book as it gets busy and you can wait quite a while to be served if not! I have been many times and will keep going again!
