Courteous waiter. Excellent mother's home cooked fish pie accompanied by delicious salad. Can relax with your food in the rear garden. No hurry,

“Like Coming Home”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

We have been to this restaurant on every holiday that we have had in Skala over the last three years. Every time it just gets better and its always nice when the staff remember you from the previous years. The quality of the food is very good, (but maybe a bit to English for me). Then that could just be my choice from the very extensive menu. Great food, Great service what more can you say, we had three visits on this holiday and well worth it.

“Just lovely”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

An excellent restaurant which is a bit deceptive from the street. Wonder through to the garden part of the restaurant and on a warm evening the experience is just lovely.

The staff are very welcoming and genuinely give you a real sense of being valid as a customer. So much so we returned three times in a short week.

Each time the food was delightful especially the Sardine starter and the "Feta old village" a combination filo pastry, feta cheese, honey and pine nuts along with the prawn saganaki all to be recommended.

For mains the fresh Sea Bass was excellent we were brought out an ice box with all the fresh fish that day to choose from which certainly gave you confidence in their freshness. Twice we had steaks Peppered and T bone again to be recommended especially the peppered. The chips were really tasty freshly cooked and lightly sprinkled with tyme and paprika.

A clean, well looked after restaurant with great food and service with fresh linen on the tables and also on the chairs!
