Lovely atmosphere, really laid back and not at all pretentious. The food is such great value. you get a huge portion, i don't think i managed to finish mine once. We returned there several times during our break away. We also had the local wine which was really nice. Would defo recommend this place if you're visiting skala.

Sent down a side street off the Main Road in Scala! Fabulous food, such a warm welcome from the lovely Spiros, who came running down the road to greet us! Lovely barbecued food on special nights
