Went to this place after being hounded by one of the guys. I didn't want to go but my friend did as he thought the guy was funny. The guy was a male chauvinist pig. The food was ok. Nothing special. I wouldn't go back...More

Came on here to write an excellent review and was incredibly surprised to see the number of bad reviews - and then you read them... This place is famous for its fresh fish - not it's omelette or it's souvlaki. The clue is the pages...More

We definitely do not recommend to go there! The food did not taste and the omelet was burnt. The fish soup tasted boring. The personnel did not show any interest in serving us.

I don't know why we ignored the TA reviews. It is a big lesson to learn. You must read the reviews and believe them. The food is terrible and the table wine is the worst we had in the whole 14 days. Avoid!

We usually dont stop in these types of places, and wish we hadn't. But, we were tired, and the view looked amazing, and they had octopus hanging outside (that actually should have been the tipoff). The food was "fine". Nothing great, and not exactly inexpensive....More

Eh thanks for your review in not sure how much more authentic you would want your food than sun dried octopus but I'm glad you enjoyed the veiw!

We stopped in Delphini for a lite meal one evening. We chose the grilled octopus having been told it was freshly caught by the father of owner. It was crispy and well prepared but could've used a bit more thrashing prior to cooking. The spinach...More
