“my favorite spot!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

i love the center of the town,and its locals! this corner is my favourite! the restaurant is ideal even for a coffee,has outseating and indoor is so stylish and cool!
i like to have coffee meetings with my friends here and some times we have a light lunch. i usually order a salad,the pasta with herbs in a cheese basket! has also mini burgers in a healthy version.do not miss them!
for drinking i suggest the roze wine vivlia xora! excellent stay!

“excellent choice”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

the restaurant is located in the centre of the town, is the restaurant of the excelsior hotel, the decoration is fresh and cozy,the cuisine is exquisite! we were welcomed and had a table comfortable,for 4 persons,even though we were 2,we faced the main road.
we had a welcome starter and we ordered roasted mushrooms with goat cheese.so yummy!
for main plate, i had a pizza,with proscuto and perorino!the other main plate was the risotto with chicken and limoncelo flavor!
the surprise was the desert! chocolate mousse so fine serviced!
amazing lunch,for sure we will visit it again!

“Excellent food”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

it was made of fresh and local ingredients. The appearance was fresh and the taste very good. The service was also good although a little slow as regards from sitting down to taking the order. The kitchen was fast to prepare the food.

“unforgettable lunch”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

the bistro has a cozy atmosphere and a quality. Inside is so well decorated,warm colors and modern seats. The staff welcomed and friendly, our waitor explained us every plate and proposed us according to our preferences.
At the beggining they welcome you with an oval plate starter salads and warm bread. smart and kind.
we had a salad,a cheese appetizer,a fish plate,a meat plate,and the amazing deserts.
the fish was exquisite,a fillet of a greek tasty fish cooked with a greek herb,called stamnagathi,do not miss it.
The cheese was the best version i ever ate of "mastello Chios" accompagnied with figue marmellade.
do not miss this restaurant.
