we found this little gem quite by chance and so glad we did, lovely cheese toasties and freshly squeezed orange juice. Also made friends with a dear little kitten. What a lovely view as well

Dimitri and Veronika made us feel very welcome at Redskins, we ate there a couple of times and went for a drink most days. His prices are very reasonable, he has free wifi and makes everyone feel welcome.

We just returned from excellent holidays . Zakynthos is fabulous island and we love to spend our time there. When we came first time to Redskins, we just felt in love with this place, wonderful location, amazing food and Dimitris and Veronika are always so helpful and they make you feel so much welcome. We loved our breakfasts there, and the home made burgers are just like a dream so tasty and delicious. My girlfriends favourite food was the lamb in the oven with potatoes, and for breakfast (they maybe do not have a special breakfast menu, but they do breakfasts) we always wanted Dimitri´s omelette, with cheese and ham and tomato because its the best omelette i had ever in my life, do try also theirs latter or cappuccino - theirs coffees made our mornings special. We can 200 % recommend this place and next year we definately come back. Simon and Leona

We stayed in the apartments above for 5 nights which were great. Redskins was great for food (especially the meatballs)and friendly atmosphere. Demetri and Veronika were helpful, kind and went out of their way for us. We had a birthday also and they prepared a lovely BBQ for us and decorated. They made the stay extra special.

We visited Redskins a few times last year and sampled John and Sue's excellent breakfast and fabulous ice creams. Now, we knew from TA that John & Sue were not here this year but didn't expect the menu to have changed quite so much. Fair enough no ice cream (well, not fair enough actually but understandable!) but no breakfast either!

We arrived at about 11 o'clock (they used to serve brekkie anytime between opening and mid-day) and looked for the breakfast menu. There wasn't one. We asked the chap running the place if we were too late for breakfast and he told us that he doesn't really do breakfast. He could have done us a full English, which we didn't want anyway, but he hadn't had a delivery of something so it wouldn't be quite "full". He told us that we could order anything else from the menu however. So, disappointed not to get breakfast, and hungry having been out cycling, we reluctantly ordered an omelette each, with one tea, one frappe.

Mr P's frappe was good but with lots of ice so not much frappe. That was the only good bit.... My tea was served with evaporated milk (eughhh-yuk). Omelettes were tiny (think somewhere between saucer and side-plate size), flavourless, underseasoned, verging on overcooked. The cheese in my cheese omelette was like Dairylea spread (I don't have anything against Dairylea but I don't want it in an omelette).

All this was bad enough but the bill came to the best part of €15. Not good vfm, especially when you consider that we had a very good evening meal elsewhere for less than twice that amount.

This is a real shame as Reskins is in a beautiful location, the chap running the place is lovely and hospitable and we had good service, but there's no getting past the disappointing food we had.

I'm sure that this place is good for some, but sadly not for us this year.
