After several meals by the sea, we are pleased to be seated under the lemon and figue trees. It is not yet high season and we were arriving quite late 14:00 for lunch. There were not many people so it was quite peaceful. However, there was no more beef with artichoke!

The moussaka was good here. Traditional dish and main course are around 8€ to 13€.Compulsary cover charge.

We had a lovely dinner here in a beautiful setting. The garden is very pretty and relaxing underneath a canopy of olive trees. The food was delicious and fresh and service perfect, not rushed but always prompt when required. Finally a big shout out to the lovely Sophie who looked after us, great service and a big thank you to you and the rest of the team for such a good meal, I think we’ll be back!

Another amazing place. Very friendly service and amazing local cuisine. Being an algarvian Portuguese, I’m well known to Mediterranean cuisine, but in this place, it’s taken to a whole new level of creativity and imagination.

This is a really beautiful and authentic greek restaurant in which you feel suddenly welcome. The food is marvelous and the owner is a really warm-hearted Greek who celebrates the hospitality with all facets. And also his children are kindly and are master of her profession. Thank you very much for this unforgettable time! Pia from Berne, Switzerland
