This little taverna is tucked away on the south side of the old town away from all the other restaurants with gorgeous views out to the offshore islands.

This restaurant's u.s.p. is its amazing position on the corner of the headland to the south of the town, affording a wonderful prospect, particularly as the sun sets and the moon rises. The service is friendly and efficient; the food is rather average, however, and on the expensive side by Greek standards, no doubt reflecting the premium location. Worth a... More

A very welcoming host with great views of the sea and very good Greek food, a little off the beaten track which was a bonus. Excellent fresh fish of the day. Would recommend seeking out this taverna.

A lovely taverna situated in the old town just past the old port. Serviced by a lovely waiter we enjoyed our time at this taverna. The food was good and service excellent. The main attraction though was the view. Simply stunning.
