“Two visits”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

We had lunch here one day and went for an evening meal another.
I doubt anyone can eat all the food you are served with!
We failed to eat all our lunch and failed with the evening meal as well. No-one could possible leave here hungry.
The food is excellent as well, which makes you feel sorry not to have room for all of it!
Service great, taverna spotless, very friendly, polite staff, really nice atmosphere.
You must eat here or you will miss a fabulous meal!

“Lovely Friendly Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013

We have been here several times over the past few years and never been disappointed by the food or the service and friendliness of the staff, the prices are very good and a great variety of food to choose from. This restaurant is very central and sits a bit back from the harbour.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013 via mobile

We had a lovely lovely tuna pizza with a greek salad and home made fries. The pizza was full of tuna and the greek salad was huge. Staff are very nice and make you feel very welcome. They were serving draft mythos which was a plus :-) . Would highly recommend this taverna.

“we consider this to be the best restaurant.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

Unlike a lot of the other restaurants, they do not need to call people in off the street and promise them a good meal. This is reliable,friendly and delivers good honest food. It may not be the best location on the front, but we consider it to be the best restaurant..

“So-so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

Very friendly staff to the point of being intrusive but better that than the surly indifference we encountered at Vritomartes (but that's another story!)
The starters were really poor.The melon and ham was tasteless with the processed ham slice of reformed meat coming straight out of a supermarket packet. The deep fried calimari were from a catering pack so uniform were they in size and shape.....again equally tasteless.
However,the main courses were very different.The veal stifado was excellent and the seafood pasta was too much for my wife to handle !
Overall I would say avoid the overpriced staters and go straight to the main courses !
