We tried to book this restaurant for days and finally went on the last night of our holiday and we are so glad we did! The six of us absolutely loved it, the staff were the friendliest staff we have ever come across and the venue was amazing. I really cannot fault this restaurant, all courses were beautiful especially the second starter. The Turkish delight and brandy were the perfect end to a beautiful meal. We have eaten all over the world and this was by far the most interesting restaurant we have ever had the pleasure of visiting.

This is a family run business with slow service and below average food. We'd reviews saying how good it was but failed to see the quirkiness of the drab interior. The starters were passable but the lamb was tough (the lighting was low perhaps so that you couldn't see the food). We saw a rat in the overhead canopy of vines and roofing! and my daughter saw a cockroach in the toilets.

We looked for days to find this restaurant and more or less gave up, then by chance we found it. We were greeted by a lovely couple and booked in for the last night of our holiday.we chose to eat the lamb and everything is home made. We looked around the garden and it was just a wonderful place.The food service and conversation were exceptional . We will be visiting again next year with the rest of my family.

Having read so many rave reviews about this place we booked a table for 6 people on Monday whilst on holiday in the area. We were warmly met by the elderly couple who run it with their son and shown to the table. The decor is quirky to say the least. It took about 20 minutes to receive our drinks, which was ok as we expected it to be that way.

What I would say is that the Mezze served here was delicious, the best we had. However, for us this is really where the praise ends. The Kleftico was dry and the veg had lost most of their texture and flavour. It was a real shame as we were hoping for mouthwatering lamb.

In addition, there were rats climbing the vines above where we ate (which we could clearly see) and the bathroom was rife with cockroaches.

This restaurant unfortunately for us did not meet the hype.

Also cash only.

Very traditional with good personal service. Menu typically local and of high quality. Quioet location but with an eclectic mix of room decoration. Very good value and highly recommended
