We visited the restaurant twice on the days of Paskha, 2014. For lunch. The place is rather pleasant. The view from the terrace is, probably, the most gorgeous on the whole island, facing Pontikonisi and Blacherna church. The drafts are less cursed than on the terrace of the nearby Nissos restaurant (the temperature those days was about 18 C). The service was comparatively quick and attentive, ready to explain things about the menu in English. But, in the menu, among the fish dishes, we found "God" instead of ''Cod": the Greeks seem to be very religious, as they are ready to serve it even on a plate :) The food doesn't differ much from other similar places, but it seemed to me clearly less expensive. The restroom was in a rather poor condition, to my mind. Generally, the place seemed to be nice, because the atmosphere was placid, relaxing and not pretentious. It's easy to get there by car, by bus (№6 from Sarocco, downtown, telling the driver you want to stop by Avra) or having a walk from Kanoni peninsula across the bay.

We were here in 2010 and had a lovely meal here, so we returned. What a mistake! The service was poor, the meal indelible, and it cost 96 euros for 2 adults and 3 children. I summed it up the next day when I thought about it...there was basically no chef...there were two guys who served and took orders and it seemed like they just went in the back and assembled what we ordered. There was also no YiaYia to cook or oversee the preparation. They were out of moussaka, stifado, and other prepared meals even though it was only 7pm. It was like a ghost town...pathetic and I'm so sorry I subjected my poor family to this meal! We had another meal at 11pm because we were still hungry . Beautiful view, however! I must say that.

If you are anywhere around Kannoni or on the other side across the foot bridge. Don't forget to visit this beautiful Taverna by the sea. They have a big range of mezzes and fine dishes from the grill. We tried the lamb chops and fish catch of the day together with a generous portion of greek salad. Spagetti to our son was perfectly done and since we went on a Sunday, there was a live band of local musicians and a professional singer all with no extra price. A big local family was celebrating the christening of their child and the party went on after we left at 2 AM. We did enjoy the food and company. We had complimentary cofee and icecream too!

You can cross from Kannoni along the foot bridge and its about 10 minutes walk down the main road.
