Called here for lunch and was terribly disappointed as the location is lovely. Started off badly with a bowl of STALE bread. I've never had stale bread in Greece before! Main courses were sea bream and sea bass and a Greek salad . Unfortunately the...More

Went to this place after being hounded by one of the guys. I didn't want to go but my friend did as he thought the guy was funny. The guy was a male chauvinist pig. The food was ok. Nothing special. I wouldn't go back...More

We definitely do not recommend to go there! The food did not taste and the omelet was burnt. The fish soup tasted boring. The personnel did not show any interest in serving us.

I don't know why we ignored the TA reviews. It is a big lesson to learn. You must read the reviews and believe them. The food is terrible and the table wine is the worst we had in the whole 14 days. Avoid!

We usually dont stop in these types of places, and wish we hadn't. But, we were tired, and the view looked amazing, and they had octopus hanging outside (that actually should have been the tipoff). The food was "fine". Nothing great, and not exactly inexpensive....More
