Been here many times and the food is always excellent. Huge menu and I especially like the hot 'pikilia' at lunchtime - a large plate of memes. Hospitality is great and nothing is a problem.

Fresh and Delicious Food, friendly staff and affordable prices. I spend my evening sitting in the restaurant watching the sunset with the glass of wine and lively Greek music. Highly recommended 😊

I love this restaurant. The food is amazing and the wait staff are amazing, friendly and genuinely lovely people. The moussaka was so tasty and plentiful, I could not finish it! And the prices were very reasonable. They made us the most refreshing fresh real lemonade. Definitely a restaurant to return to!

No reason to suggest this place. The waiting is eternal (although the number of guests is quite small) and the food is average or a bit below.
