“Good for a relaxed meal at reasonable prices”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

Casual dining in an unremarkable setting. Waiters are super attentive and eager to help in the early parts of your meal, more relaxed once you've been served - perfect for a laid back lunch or dinner after hiking the island. Excellent grilled dishes - lamb portion is highly recommended.

“Reasonable quality and prices”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We ate here at a quiet time of the day and service wasn't a problem. We had a variety of dishes that were basic but typical Greek fare. The restaurant is situated a few streets back from the cliff face so you don't have to pay a premium for caldera views but a reasonable price for the quality and quantity of food provided. We received a complimentary house wine.

“Good food with very average service.”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

We were almost dragged into the restaurant by the over enthusiastic owner who was stood in the street and we were immediately ushered to the "Garden" area at the back. There wasn't actually any garden and we were seated at a table by the window overlooking a quad rental shop on a side street. The waiters were all smiles when we were ordering but as soon as that was done they really didn't seem bothered with us. We had to get their attention every time we wanted anything (which shouldn't have been difficult as they all sat smoking at the table next to us even though the restaurant was nearly empty) but they still took several minutes to ask what we wanted even after acknowledging that they knew we required their service. That said, the food was pretty good. My son and I had the Gyros (it's all about the Gyros), my wife had a salad, and my daughter had the stuffed tomatoes and we all really enjoyed our meals. The prices were higher than we had been paying elsewhere but as far as the kids were concerned it was worth it for the free wifi (password 23456789).

“OK Greek food”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

Service was OK but loud and caiotic. A bit smokey from the food cooking. Average at best. I had the octopus which was OK. Greek salad was poor.

“Bad food, too expensive”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

The food was too expensive compared to each quality. We didn't like the atmosphere and the attitude of the waiters. Certainly, I don't recomend it.
