We ate here as a family of 5. The service was very good and the tapas we ordered were great. The staff was kind to our small children as well.

I visited Canteen with friends a few days ago. My visit left me with mixed feelings. We ordered tapas and beers. Although some of the dishes were very tasty, others were simply inedible. The (very) thin marinated pork chops were delicious, but they were burned (not overcooked, burned) on their underside. When I pointed it out to the waiter, he simply told me that's that the way of preparing them. Yeah, right...
Beer price was ridiculous: a 0.5 litre Murphy's costs more than 5 Euros, and it is served in a can!
Finally, when we asked for the bill, the waiter brought us the order sheet, instead of the receipt, which is illegal in Greece. When I asked him to bring a proper receipt, in order to get paid, he again denied (also illegal) and insulted us by saying that they do not bring the receipt up front, because they want to prevent clients from falsely claim that they have paid. In other words, he hinted that we may be cheaters and liars!
Nevertheless, it must be doing something right, because on the weeknight of our visit it was packed with "beautiful people". I will not be one of them again though...

Flavorful, eclectic cuisine priced fairly (but perhaps a tad higher than surrounding restaurants). The sesame salmon was superb.

Good food, good service in a central location near the sea.
Comfy sofa for relaxed dinning.
Ask for the legal receipt though, not just the bill.
