The chips were great (top marks on ChipAdvisor, if it existed :), but I was expecting better from the lamb souvlaki which was tough and chewy. The sardines seemed like they'd been cooked in old oil. Having said that, the food was OK, not terrible....More

I was surprised to find that the food was better than I expected. The exterior is not really inviting but really enjoyed the meal.

Family restaurant with friendly staff and very good food. If you have a problem just ask for Spiros and will handle the situation in his charming way. The ladies like his antics.
