“Excellent”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

If you're looking for a local place to eat, with local food, cooked by the owners mom, this is the place. The place is an old venetian stable, with a lot of atmosphere and history. And very cheap too.

“Great Greek restaurant, go here!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Very nice restaurant with amazing Greek homemade food and good service. We shared the mixed plate with boureki, stuffed tomatoes, stuffed aubergine and meatballs and everything was delicious! We were also offered free ice cream and raki, and the total for all the food, 2 big glasses of wine and a beer was just over 20 euros, so the prices were really cheap! Loved the place and I would definitely recommend it. We are definitely going back there.

“Excellent home cooking”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Tempted by the great TripAdvisor reviews we decided to have lunch at this little restaurant, which we could've easily missed, had we not been specifically on the look-out for it. We were welcomed by a sweet, smiling waitress, who is also the daughter of the amazing cook. Instead of being given a menu we were shown all the dishes and had explained to us, in a passionate and friendly way (with no hard sell anywhere!) exactly what they were - a wonderful way to choose our meal. The food was delicious and genuine - clearly cooked someone who knows what Greek food is all about, and how to get the best out of every ingredient. It felt more like being invited to a Greek friend's house for a meal than an ordinary restaurant visit. We will definitely return.

“Excellent genuine Greek experience”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

For a genuine warm and welcome Greek experience, this is THE PLACE.

We had trouble finding the restaurant even with a gps, but fortunately we did not give up. It is an anonymous little restaurant, but do NOT let that fool you. Our party of seven have never felt so welcome to any restaurant before. Christianna is really a lovely lady. Her mother made us three plates of mixed dishes, all genuine and fresh Greek. We warmly recommend it. We didn't even see the menu, she explained our choices in a great manner. Prices were so cheap, we decided to give a 50% tip. They earned every penny.

Trust all the excellent reviews, pay this place a deserved visit.
