What a lovely friendly little takeaway, ran by a small local family. Warm welcome very and friendly service with freshly made food.
Despite some negative reviews that I have read, I personally found the gyros 1/2 a portion, served with fresh hot pitta bread and crispy fries, salad and tzatziki was very tasty and I really enjoyed it. This little place doesn’t dress itself up as a restaurant, it’s a takeaway with some seating. What you see is what you get and very nice it was too.
Recommended.

With 202 reviews and a 5 star rating we expected good & wellmade food, but were very disappointed:
- calamari rings for startere were tasteless as they were served without salt, lemon or any spices
- pasta bolognese was not bolognese, but sphaghetti w moussakatasting minced meat and no saus
- gyros meat was dry, chewy and tasless. Had clearly been on the grill way too long.

Minor disappointments:
- gyros served with strong yellow oinion instead of the mild salat onions any decent restaurant serves
- ordered draft beer, but they had to change the tank. Had to Ask for a bottle beer after 10+ min waiting
- the mains were served at differensiert times 15 min between first and last.

I cannot understand how this restaurant has got such good reviews. For us it was a disappointment.

This family restaurant, take away, bar call it what you want has to be the best Gyros Pitta on the strip. They serve practically everything from Gyros to beautiful Crepes and at fantastic prices. No not the best looking restaurant not by a long shot, but food and family respect is truly amazing. Go for a fantastic lunch enjoy but be prepared to walk out very full

Only for the bells and singing of Mr Nektarios and you should definitely come and try their food.

These amazing people know how to charm and enchant tourists like no one else. People stop and record the show as a genuine attraction, impossible to replicate by competition.

Now, about the food I try to summarise in three words : fresh, generous and affordable. Gyros, Greek salad (best in Stalis), tzatziki, warm pitas with olive oil and oregano are exceptionally good and will be remembered until next visit.

The regret only appears when you notice you cannot eat dessert, the crepes and the huge portion of ice-cream.

Basic surroundings, more of a cafe than resteraunt but the food is amazing! Me and my partner have been 4years running for little snacks and tasty desserts, with a super friendly family run feel and personal service there really is no reason to try elsewhere! We will be back.
