We loved the local. First time we had perfectly cooked steaks with amazing sauces. Second time I had a wonderful musaka and my partner had a great souvlaki. We found the staff friendly and welcoming. If you come to this place we recommend a visit

Freshly prepared, quality ingredients, excellent service, all in the perfect spot. Full nearly every night, a testament to the experience. So get there early or book or just sit in the relaxing bar area and have a drink while you wait for a table. We...More
