My husband and I ate here last night and had such a lovely relaxing evening. This is a traditional Greek style taverna with a relaxed environment and typical Greek hospitality. The place was buzzing with local people dining with their family and friends. The menu consists of meze plates so we ordered a selection of around 7 dishes which was plenty. You can always order more as you go which shows how relaxed this restaurant is. The setting is very pretty with trees over the outside dining area with lanterns. The restaurant is located right on the seafront. The food is fresh and the chef will accommodate any special requests. I would recommend the grilled shrimps and cheese and spinach pies.

Poppy's or Paparounia to give it its Greek name is a lovely little garden restaurant with a dozen tables. In fact to class it as a restaurant would be incorrect, and I don't mean that in a bad way. Poppy's is like sitting in a Greek grandmother's garden with her kitchen attached. really delightful home cooked food, no fuss or pomp; just honest to goodness great food. I loved Poppy on my last visit in September and was delighted to come back to it, not once , but 3 times in my visit in May 14.

Paprouna or Poppy's is out towards the Venetian Salt Pans and is a romantic quiet unhurried restaurant serving a fantastic assortment of mezze's and other traditional dishes.

The hospitality is great and every dish is prepared and served in a traditional, rustic and very pleasant way. The staff are helpful and the atmosphere laid back and relaxing. Well worth the short walk to visit and take in the excellent views across the bay.
