The food is really good. Delivered reasonably quick to our table. And having a Greek sister-in-law whom we have visited in Greece, this is very genuinely Greek food. While the food is very good and reasonably priced, all the five star reviews seem somewhat excessive....More

I didn't see any indication of public wifi. There is a local wifi network that serves the monastery, but it has no public access.
