We visited this restaurant for lunch and ate club sandwiches and a gyros sandwich and both were delicious. You get a really good portion for your money. The only minus point would be that the coke wasn't bubbly anymore. But definitely worth a visit.

When in Greece we visit this place almost daily for the food and friendly service. Very reasonably priced, and with a widely varied menu. The owner is lovely and very genuine. It is a family restaurant, with a beautiful sea view :)
