If you are after good value, home cooked type food, this is a good stop. Nothing flash. Excellent coffee. Friendly staff

Good value menu - pasta from €6 upwards. Yhey have an English version of the menu if you prefer. We both had Pasta Alla Norma which is a Sicilian speciality served with Aubergines (eggplant) and Sicilian ricotta. I have to say it was one of the best Alla Norma dishes I have ever had.


The food was cooked to order - bottles of wine from €10 but the local wine was much cheaper.

Just around the corner from the Cristal Palace made this a perfect location for us to have a lazy lunch before heading back to collect our bags and head for the airport.

Disliked: it's a bit scatty inside - looks like they have placed tables anywhere to fit more people in - but it adds to the fun.

We ate here twice. The staff was very friendly and patient, explaining the menu to us and recommending some local specialities. The restaurant is amazing value and seemed to be popular with locals as well.

We had dinner here on the 8th August and chose the basic set menu at 10.50 Euro but also added a pizza and starter to share as well as house wine. The pasta dish was filling, the pizza was excellent, the started and the second meat plate were small but overall it was a good experience and comparing the price (about 16 euro pp) with the food quality and service it was very satisfactory.
PS As Greeks we tend to like lots of food on our dinner table.
