“Worst gyros in Greek Islands”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

We found this place while trying to find a gyros restaurant. It was empty but the hostess convinced us to stay. You should NEVER sit down to eat at an empty place, there is always a reason.
They would say anything to make you stay, even if you ask whether the food is frozen, they say everything is fresh. They idea of fresh potatotes is taking frozen potatoes out of a bag and frying them, sreved "fresh" at the moment.
Maybe it was our fault, we should have sit down in any of the many other gyros places, but I was trying to find a nice restaurant to have my last gyros portion in Greece (I had so many and this one was the WORST).
If you want cheap and crappy food, this is your place!

“OK but ...”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Not as crowded as Nico's but there's a reason: not everything is as good as it should be. Of our group of four the baked items scored much more highly that the grilled items.

“The best food and service!”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

This was a great experience which we happily repeated during our stay in Mykonos. The tavern aitself is very spacious and located centrally. It has a great staff and the owner/manager is extremely hosptable. I wshed a have some lobster, but they had only huge ones which I felt would be too much for me. After consulting with the owner/manager, the waiter immediately offered to halve it for me, which was quite unexpectedly helpful. The food was of course excellent, even the vegetarian fare!

“Lovely restaurant and value for money”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

My husband and I are here on our honeymoon and we choose this restaurant tonight. Wow the food was lovely. We had the lamb stew and mix souvlaki ... Well to our surprise the lamb stew was to us a lamb shank and it was divine so tender and flavorsome... We had entree, salad , two mains a dessert and a coffee and in total bout 50euros...
They also gave us mini magnums complimentary when we got the bill ... The best bit was the Greek music in the background and how the waiters are not at all pushy which is annoying ...
