Service was awful starting with the hostess who was rude after mixing up our reservation. No apologies. She instead tried to make it our fault. The food was mediocre at best and extremely expensive. I own a second home here and know there are many...More

Good bar, Greek appetizers, fish dishes, hearty lamb shank. It is open all year which is a plus. Service is usually prompt. You should not go home hungry.
