Fantastic meal. My husband chose a sea bass from the refrigerated cabinet and it was then cooked and Nikos filleted the cooked fish at the table. It was cooked to perfection and delicious. I had the whitebait, again very good. Lovely restaurant and great service.

This is one of the few authentic Greek Restaraunts in this town - and it is the best. The food, and in particular, the fish is fresh and perfectly cooked. In a sea of Albanian run fake Greek restaurants this is an oasis of deliciousness...More
