Not the most attractive place from the street perhaps, but that's not important because the food & smile inside is the magnet here. Excellent English spoken by the lady cook, occasionally helped by her husband when he's not working at a hotel, this is where value for money exists when nearby it can be lost in translation. All the Greek fried classics and then some are made here on the spot. The guides of foreign tour operators eat here because they can afford to. Hearty helpings that challenge the stomach's capacity to leave an empty plate. One of the guides gave a hint that I hadn't spotted last year: look at the two daily specials chalked up on the blackboard to the left of the counter. These tend to be what the lady cook has indulged in that morning, but be prepared for the negative response as they go fast. Cheap drinks too of course. Not really for large groups or families, though they go too. Honest as the day's long too: my camera was waiting for me in their cupboard after I had got fed up with two drunken pain-in-the-neck Swedes late one night (it's normally open late) and left hastily. No worries though as Madam had closed up, chucked them out and rescued my bag with valuables inside. A nice bar of soap was her reward along with effusive thanks. This place fits the low budget traveller(s) needing a quick taste of Greece before the night ahead - be it in bed or at a nearby nighclub.

Excellent traditional dishes prepared by the mother of this family restaurant. Known to have the best home made hamburgers in town! Service by two daughters is friendly and efficient. The value is unbeatable. Our meal for 5 including drinks was 18 Euros! The decoration is simple but it is not a place one goes to for the 'decoratative ambiance'. Highly recommended for a good, value for money meal.
