We have been here several times before, but this was a disappointing visit. My steak was overdone, the chips were from frozen, and my dry wine was sweet and the worst wine I've ever tasted ( and I'm not fussy).

We had a huge dish of hummus between us, then sardines and lamb in lemon sauce, both of which were very well cooked and tasty.

We have visited this restaurant many times over the years. There is always a warm friendly welcome here and a lovely view of the island. We had steak which was requested to be medium and arrived as well done and lamb kleftiko which was tasty but not quite as cheesy as I've had in other places.

This is definitely the place to go if you are hungry as the portions are huge and the main courses served with delicious rice and veg as well as chips and salad. Also a free drink of Kalhua with the bill was appreciated.
