“Good food, convenient location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

This restaurant was one we went to four or five times. The menu is about average in variety, but we never had a bad meal, and thought the prices were about right. The guy in charge first gives the impression of gruffness, but is actually failry warm. Try the souvlaki, the sousoukakia, the salads. I wasn't impressed by their fish though. In total, this is a good place to grab lunch, but lacks atmosphere and has too many pedestrians walking right next to your table.

“Enjoyable meal away from main tourist zone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012 via mobile

We had a pleasant family meal here. The food was traditional and good and the atmosphere was relaxed with fairly basic decor. Staff were competent and accommodating. Worth going for a laid back lunch or dinner. It's off the beaten track so not too busy but there is a motorway nearby so it's by no means idyllic.

“A little slice of Greek life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

We visited here twice as it is quite close to the hotel we stayed in. We were delighted to meet a Greek gentleman born in Athens who took time to talk with us. Also I noticed so many local people eating here and I just followed suit and ordered what the locals were having.

“delightful host & good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

We had dinner here last week and went back for souvlaki to go the next day. Loved that it was not as touristy as many other places we visited. The owner sat behind us quietly all night then had our waiter bring us dessert on the house. We ordered three dishes and ate family style -- this place was perfect for that. Good food, nice atmosphere, nice people.
