“Nice environment but the food?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

This recently opened establishment(last year I think)is located in a lovely garden with a vegetable patch,fruit trees and an olive grove overlooking a part of the island that is lush in vegitation and mountainous.
The service was a bit on the stiff side(couldn't get a smile out of the waitor)and the food seemed to be prepared from a cook fresh out of a cooking school and experimenting with little consideration on what tastes match and only producing dishes that sound exotic..taste and presentation being secondary on his agenta.
Had the chicken encrusted in pistachio nuts,dry and boring.Their chick-pea balls,a common and indeginous dish on this island,was served with tachini,a paste with sesame as a base.Bad match.Their salads though,were well prepared and fresh staight out of their own garden adjoining the restaurant.

“SUPER! Great food, sevice and great green yard!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2011

Taste the local foods in a modern way! Better go in the afternoon or evening. Good value. Taste "Mastelo", "Chicken", "Revithokeftedes". They gather tomatoes, aubergines, etc ftom their garden which is in front of you. Οι τοπικες σπεσιαλιτε προσφερονται με μοντερνο τροπο.
