The staff is very warm and welcoming. The food was really good, we ate the specials Japanese Shiitake and rib eye. It was the perfect meal and good price.

A cozy and tasty restaurant with a small menu (meant as a positive thing). They will gladly adapt the meals for your kids if neseccary. Dodge the touristy places near the port area, and head directly to this "hidden" place!

Tucked down an alleyway in the old town, this is a great spot to grab dinner. The food is fairly good and the service is friendly and knowledgable.

Chef Lefteris is a remarkable cook! Talk with him and he will prepare the right dish for you. This is an excellent restaurant, so different from the usual tavernas. Don't miss it!

Very friendly and competent service, cute location, high quality food. I felt a bit mislead though by the name and by the categories in tripadvisor: I had expected a very vegan friendly place. What I got was a plate of delicious vegetables with mushrooms and potatoes. Solid, but not extraordinary.

The best restaurant in town! I will start with the location ... It's so graphic because it's in an alley that you can seat and enjoy the Cycladic arch . The food is excellent, you can feel the fresh ingredients and the Greek touch in the European recipes ! The guys there was very homie , I am a vegetarian... More

Intimate restaurant well located in a backstreet. Good service. Small menu. Certainly a good alternative for the more common bars and restaurants at the square.

We read the great reviews and decided to try something else to the everyday taverna food. However, the food was nothing spectacular. I cannot recommend this restaurant unless you've really had it with taverna food. The staff were very courteous but did not handle mistake in expressed food allergy appropriately (merely removed the items from the plate and brought it... More
