We really enjoyed this restaurant! We shared a mushroom soup for an appetizer. I ordered a lamb shank that was delicious, but my wife's pork soulvaki was the best we had in greece!!!! The service was amazing and we really enjoyed the experience.

They represent Greek hospitality per se. Food is prepared well. Ingredients are all natural and fresh. Only virgin olive oil is used.

We had dinner twice. And would and probably will return many more times.

Try the lamb cooked slowly for two hours. Or the lightly battered fried squid. The traditional Greek salad comes with caper leaves and rye bread at the bottom. Chicken souvlaki was excellent. Even French fries were fresh, cooked to perfection and nicely seasoned.

Prices are reasonable. Fair for the quality.

Family owned. The owner works in the service as does his brother. The employees are so team oriented with a positive attitude that we first thought they were joint owners.

This place is fantastic; the food was awesome and the staff is very careful even in the tiny details. We were pleased about the waiter Stavos (I'm sorry if it's not written corretc) who helped us choosing among the traditional greek plates. After all, our dinner (we were 2) costed about 30€, almost half the price we are used to pay in that kind of fancy restaurant. I highly recommend it.
