We ate here and had a drink here during our week in Sami, at the end of the season. The waiters were attentive, the food delicious, the wine delicious and reasonably priced. Excellent, will definitely return on our next trip to Sami.

The menu has so much choice! We had the Sea Bass & Grilled Squid. Both excellent. Good traditional Greek music and outstanding value for money. Recommended.

On the Sami waterfront this place offers a wide variety of food, including of course Greek. Our meal was good, service was ok and location is great.

We had a lovely salad and our friends ordered salad and pizza. It was delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Location by the sea made it very pleasant

This came highly recommended and we were not disappointed! Shown to a table overlooking the harbour, staff were pleasant and attentive. Sea bream was delicious! We missed the live music as chose a night when no entertainment was on but still had a great night!

We were lucky to have a meal on Saturday night where there was two musicians and a singer. The ambience was amazing with live greek music and songs. The food was cooked well with lots of variety. Medium priced. Best night of our holiday

The pizza crust is really different, the portions are massive. Try the watermelon cider! Service a little bit slow but very pleasant.
