Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Very good food. The bread and water cost. But they made us feel appreciated with the dessert on the house and the local hard liquor which was on the house.

Long established taverna which we retuned to this year after last being there 6 years ago. Glad to see that it’s as good as ever. Popular with locals and tourists alike. The food is excellent and the service extremely efficient. Additionally there is always a...very generous ‘on the house’ dessert and bottle of raki. RecommendedMore

We are currently recovering from a small lunch but supplemented by delicious complimentary desserts. The traditional food is very, very good and there is a wide choice.

Excellent food and very warm welcoming from the host. We cherish all the minutes spent in this taverne, because of the very tasty food and the smile on the waiter’s faces. We recommend this taverne with all our heart.
