We had a great evening at this place :) The sea bass was amazing... one of the best I had for a long time. The house wine was good as well. Also, we received a lot of extras... bread with dips, fruit, cake, ouzo etc....More

I was here as part of a large group. I don't think they were well prepared. Food was slow in coming and unevenly served. My prawns were overcooked and so was my friend's lamb. The beets and the zucchini were yummy. Some others ordered those....More
