“Excellent family run taverna”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

This is the place to go for traditional homemade Greek cooking. The mother cooks in hte kitchen while the son and daughter take it in turns to serve at table. It is worth asking for the specials of the day which are not on the menu and are excellent.

“Great service and food”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

Very welcoming and the food exceeded expectations. Don't worry about the slightly odd setting in a mini mall courtyard, this is well worth it. Recommend the cheese parcels and fried aubergine in particular. Very friendly host and excellent value.

“Home Cooking at its best”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Don't be put off by this taverna being located in the courtyard of a block of flats. The food is superb and the service excellent. It is family run - Mum Rula does the cooking helped by daughter Despina, whilst son Angelos takes the orders and is the main waiter. The portions are just right and the food quality is always high. My wife and I have been going here for the last ten years and have never had a bad meal; try the roast chicken and potatoes from the oven.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Take it from a Greek - you can have much better food in Samos. The food is way below average(if you have to eat there avoid traditional dishes - grilled meat is easier and cannot be cooked 3 days ago). The service is OK - even though they have the tendency to not give you a receipt (please ask for it). The location is pretty bad even though they do make some effort to decorate it.

Overall, avoid.
