Good food served in a lovely setting in a walled garden. We were staying in the village so ate there several times. Highly recommended.

Alekos taverna is well hidden but worth the trip. We sat in the cute courtyard next to orange and lemon trees and hat lamb chops and stuffed meat ball. Both were prepared excellently. Prices were fair too. Highly recommended!

Excellent swordfish and meatballs + first place in 10 days with tasty olive oil. Absolutely worth a visit. A small drawback that dishes don't come with any vegetables, a small salad would be more than welcome.

Cosy place. Excellent food. Very nice owners. You can try local food prepared just specially for you. It takes little bit time but surroundings is so nice that you wwill never notice that you are waiting, apart of fact that food is worth to wait.

We found this restaurant by coincidence one evening, loved it and returned for lunch the following day. The hospitality was excellent and the food above average. The secluded garden is very relaxing.
