“Back for lunch and not disappointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2013 via mobile

Invited to Fanari for lunch over the weekend. Three couples with 6 kids. They were not very busy because, I guess it is out of season. The tavern is very child friendly. The food was great as usual. We order a whole lot of platters which we all shared.The kids had spaghetti with mince. I really enjoyed the pork stew done in the tomato sauce. The fried Greek cheese is always a winner. They served us a local organic red and a white wine which was very good considering it is homemade. The wine complimented the various meat stew we ordered. We finished off with the homemade Halwa for dessert. We decided to all split the bill. Great food for Great value.

“Nice View / Average Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2012

If the weather is nice, the view from the Tent-Like eating place across the street is terrific. The food is good, but nothing exceptional. Our Mezze-plate was excellent, while the pork sufflaki were in terms of meat a little rubberstyle :-)

“Great meal below the Fortezza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2012 via mobile

Found the service friendly on arrival. My two kids enjoyed the crumbed chicken prepared specially for the kids. We had the Charloumi cheese and fresh Greek salad as a starter and finished off with the most delicious calamari, octopus and sardines.
We will be back

Fantastic location, different menu, good service, please see other review, just filling in space!
Apakia was fab, Aubergine Parma lovely, Vodka burger didn't get the 14 year old tipsy, but he still liked it, pork loin with cheese and ham excellent, good house wine at a reasonable price, nice belt pork, definitely a revisit restaurant.
