We absolutely loved this place - dinner consisted of Greek salad, calamari, octopus, fresh fish (which melted in the mouth) served by very friendly and courteous staff. We have a policy of trying never to visit the same restaurant twice when staying on a Greek island but we were more than happy to bend the rules for this one and... More

A nice little place to eat and drink. We had local snacks and a beer each came to 14 euros. A nice outlook and a pleasant atmosphere

Any problems and she goes out of her way to help. She will adapt her menu to suit your requirements and nothing is too... More

A must visit restaurant for us, whenever we are in Argostoli. We are always given a friendly welcome by Rosa and her staff. We've never had a bad meal here and I have to say the Spag Bol, Prawn Saganaki and the Souvlakis are delish......

It has a lovely relaxed atmosphere and great to just sit and watch the world go by. I cannot recommend this little taverna enough, if... More
