The quality of the food is very good, service could not be faulted and the location, right on the beach, is superb.

The food at Roots is a little different from the traditional Greek fare. We had a wonderful meal on the little beach with the full moon rising. Great food, friendly and obliging staff and a wonderful setting.

Great service, good food and nice staff. Very close to the beach so you can enjoy the sea view. Tables also on the pebbles. We ate here a few times during our stay. The owner is such a friendly guy. Heavily recommended.

Like others have said the location is great. We ate here three times and did not have a bad meal. The service was also excellent. Loved the free ouzo at the end of the meal as well.

At arrival we were appointed to a beautiful table with sea view. The waitress and owner were very hospitable and friendly and made us feel at home.
