I visited this restaurant with work colleagues, where our greek hosts gave a good appraisal after I mentioned the recommendations on this site. We were in a party of 5 and shared starters, with the rochfort stuffed peppers and mashed peas being exceptional. Then we all went for a seafood risotto which came on two large serving trays and was full with seafood and more than enough. Even with a few drinks each the bill still came to below 70 euro. There was a bit of an issue with the payment, where we had to wait 30 minutes for them to bring the bill, where one of the waiters didn't seem interested in taking the money. An excellent restaurant if you like seafood.

Loved the fresh fish they showed at your table and grilled for you. The food was great and the Raki afterwards was fun. The street is a little busy, so watch the traffic.

We came here for dinner on our last night in Greece and were blown away by the amazing food, great service and beautiful location. We watched the sunset as our energetic waiter brought out the fresh fish catch of the day and we picked what we wanted to eat.... shortly thereafter the fish was on a plate, perfectly and tastefully grilled with very good vegetables and lemon/oil sauce on the side. We also had a Greek salad as an appetizer and the portion was big enough for both me and my friend to share. Further appetizers included feta and gorgonzola-stuffed peppers and meatballs that were both very, very good.
We also got complimentary dessert and the breadbasket that came with the food had five or six different types of Greek bread. For all this and drinks, my friend and I paid 30 euro (including tip).
As an added bonus, while we enjoyed our amazing meal we watched the sun set over the mountains just a few meters from the harbors edge.
You can't go wrong with this restaurant!

Restaurant is on the street, seating area is across a busy seaside street on the sea side, and the waiters run back and forth from the restaurant to the tables.
We ordered a special of the day: sea bass. When we did, they brought the fish, uncooked, to our table for our inspection. We ordered some vegetables and Greek salads. The fish was grilled and everything was brought to the table, running in between the cars, buses and trucks. Had a nice local beer. It was great!
After the meal, the waiter brought a dish to each of us, mine with vanilla ice cream and a chocolate muffin, my wife with a orange muffin and vanilla ice cream. The orange muffin was the most incredible muffin I have ever had! It had the feeling of pulling orange segments from a real orange (how did they do that? I wanted a recipe!)

Dinner for two was salad; grilled mushrooms; mixed sea shells; grilled sea bass with a large beer and half litre of house red at a total cost of Euro 43. Food was terrfific - the best we had during out three wekks in Greece - and the house red is very drinkable.
Great location and good friendly staff, so not to be missed!
