A must to try the Castelvecchio salad :) This salad is just superb! The different Lamb dishes are all of high standard, so if you feel a need for quality greek food, try Castelvecchio. Reservation is smart, few tables and an attractive place to eat

Restaurant is in a lovely setting and staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. My wife chose rabbit stifado and I chose kleftico as our main course from the greek speciality section of the extensive menu. Before the starter was served we were given complimentary bottled water and lovely bread with olives and dips. A really nice touch. My lamb was served boneless in a foil parcel and was delicious. Unfortunately my wife's rabbit was tough and she could not get it off the bone. We would not normally complain, just grin and bear it and not return to a restaurant but she was not able to eat the rabbit so we called the waiter over. The response was excellent, no quibble about it and they immediately offered the same dish but with chicken which was fine and they kept my meal warm until the chicken stifado was ready. We were given a rather tasty complimentary dessert by way of apology. This restaurant is still worth a visit.

Small restaurant serving good food with a very pleasant choice between indoor or terrace dining options. Good menu - sea bream was excellent, as was the shrimp and avocado starter. Wines around 18-30 euros a bottle. Complimentary walnut cake offered for desert which was nice. Very enjoyable experience and would definitely recommend.
