Very good menu! The eggplant dishes are my favourite. They have English and Turkish language menus. And local beer.

The restaurant is excellent, and prices are contained. I ate there twice and both times I was amazed by their ability to join traditional Greek cuisine with innovation and original recipes. Try their vegetable dishes. We did not choose what to order: they owner brought us a number of dishes and we enjoyed them all under the orange trees in... More

We've already eaten at best known restaurants in Chios. If you want to meet with real traditional Greek reataurant you should try first this one. Reservation is necessary, service may be slow but it definitely worths. Finally you can order Bougatsa as a desert. Epharisto para poli.

If you're ever in chios town , don't miss this place .. Very similar to Turkish cuisine. But with some small and very tasty differences.. Although a little hard to find , it will be worth your effort ..

We have booked the restaurant 2 days in advance as we have learned that restaurant is so good that there is little chance to get a table without reservation.

It is very classic Greek restaurant not like tourists trap. You can find different Greek couisine as well as sea food. It is also very popular among locals and has very nice garden. It is definitely very good choice especially after getting tired of seafood at other restaurants.

If you want to try traditional food you have to go and test different plate. My favorite bean cooked with mandarin sauces, second lamb meat with tomato sauce, horta (herbs) salad, etc. Im sure You will enjoy
