Finally tried out the forge and wish we'd have come sooner. Beautiful setting, amazing food, great service. The chicken tagine, grilled steak and lamb kleftiko were all stunning. Would also recommend cheesecake and the coffee ice cream. Can't wait to return!

Visited this restaurant on a recent trip to the area and really glad we did. From the moment you arrive everything about it is great - setting, location, staff and food. Will definitely return next time we are in this area.
