Completely different from from other restaurants in Letojanni. Delicious slow food. Great wines. Good waitress will, If you order a glass of wine, open a bottle in front of you and poured into your glass. It is rear. And above all the music is sensational, jazz, french chansons. Do not miss this restaurant.
