Well what can I say:

We walked in on a Saturday night early enough for Greeks around 20:30pm. The restaurant was empty but that was Ok given the time.

Starters:
-Greek salad with no olive oil. The olive oil provided was of the cheapest quality that tastes of nothing. Very small portion but Ok
- Plevrotous Mushrooms. Luke warm towards cold, clearly micro waved from the stash they had ready. Awful. Shame as the restaurant is called mushrooms and customers have a choice of 5 mushroom dishes which are all heated in the micro and then drizzle the sauce on top.
-Fried cheese balls. Granded freshly fried but under fried therefore they were collapsing on your fork
All starters arrived within 5 minutes of ordering

MAIN COURSES!!!!

- I had Thrapsala. 2 tiny pieces like small Calamari on a bed of Lettuce no other garnish 12.50 Euros. A joke. No herbs no salt no pepper nothing!
-My girlfriend had grilled psaronefri. Very average.
And the icing on the top fried potatoes fried in 20 year oil came black and I am not joking and they were not ashamed to serve them. 1 Beer and half carafe of wine altogether 50 Euro. A complete waste of money. They will not see us again although locals.

1 Chef (cook rather) and 2 waiters sitting in the main restaurant area being busy chatting about various thing. Our dinner was a quick bite to eat before we headed straight home after a busy day so not a big deal. I felt sorry for the group of 6 who arrived as we were leaving for a birthday dinner!!

So long

There is nothing especially bad with this restaurant. But there is nothing especially good.
Food is fresh ,not really successful though. Kind of : '' we are eating something because we have to''. It's pricey for what it's served.
Servis is nothing more the golden average of an amateur stuff.
If you are really starving and it's raining (that's what happened to us) go for it.
Otherwise wouldn't be wise!..
