This restaurant is hidden away just opposite Maria's Pizza off the main road down to the harbour .It is well worth looking for it as they have made great use of the space and made it very pleasant to eat. The service was excellent ,no dashing around just calm atmosphere. The food was really good and such a pleasant surroundings. Only thing I would say is the problem of people smoking but it's the same most places in Greece..

after the first bad experience with Paraxenos 2 years ago, influenced by the good reviews we though that we try it again just to be even more disappointed. Our order were taken 25 minutes after our arrival, the appetisers were served cold and obviously were not fresh, and the main course never arrived almost 1,5 hours after our order. We just had to leave and for sure we will never go back

The courtyard provides a pleasant place for a quiet meal. My wife and I visited Paraxenos twice during our stay and thoroughly enjoyed both meals. The spaghetti carbonara was delicious, although bad for the arteries due to the amount of cream and cheese! Went for a plainer dish on the second visit. The portions are generous so be careful if you are having a starter, the vine leaves and muscles are almost meals in themselves! Good service from friendly staff.

Returned as our previous experience was wonderful.
Not so this time.
On arrival there was probably only 4 tables occupied & no "Reserved table" signs were visible. So not particularly a busy time yet it seemed we were shown to what we thought was the worst sited table.
We noted a couple at one table with drinks only & another table where drinks were just being served.
Perhaps 15 minutes later we were brought a menu. During this time, no food was served to the other 2 tables.
Another 10 minutes & our order was taken. Still no food to the other tables.
Another 10 minutes & we were starting to feel irritated as our drinks had not been served!
One of the other tables asked about their starters & were hurriedly told they were on their way.
A couple walked in & were seated & it appeared that they were were known to the staff. And guess what? Menus presented immediately & their drinks served within minutes!!
Enough. Sorry to say we got up & left!
Obviously they were short staffed, but a 40 minute wait & not even a drink?
They need to get their act together for the busy season ahead as there are plenty of other delightful places to eat.
