It is only possible to eat outside which is normally a great experience but towards the end of September this can be a little challenging. Nevertheless, the food was superb. I particularly enjoyed the slow cooked pork. Unfortunately, the biting insects were in evidence that...More

Why is this place the best on the island? I just don't see it. We were there for a dinner, tried 4 dishes from a really limited menu. The food was ok at best. There are better places to eat on the island.

Excellent hearty food on a lovely terrace overlooking Livadi. I had the beautifully cooked slow roast veal with plum sauce and roast potatoes. Portions are regular size, but it's still difficult to leave space for desert. I sampled the decent local rose which you can...More

The lack of a view exacerbated the poor food. Also the bathrooms were dirty and rundown. This place was highly recommended by the captain of our boat, but we were not impressed at all.

We have dinner here at least once every summer and we're never disappointed. (Mostly) Greek cuisine with a creative touch, nothing pretentious or trying too hard, just consistently good. The setting in the backstreet is pleasantly quiet (especially in August when the seafront can get...More

A nice friendly atmosphere. Nice people. You should try the Tagliata and the Pasta with meat sauce. Both were great. Some of the main courses were not really successful despite their intention to be original. The portions of "katsikaki" with aubergine sauce were small. A...More

This is really very good modern Greek food (and I've eaten a lot of it...) - a nice place to go to get a bit of a change from tavern fare. Imaginative twists on Greek classics. Service is good and the terrace is a lovely...More
