Good pizzas and salad at a reasonable cost. Service was very good and efficient. Pleasant outdoor dining area. Ideal for a family lunch after visiting the site and much cheaper and quicker than the restaurant on the site itself.

Advised by a local police officer, we discovered this friendly family restaurant. We ate outside on the covered terrace with view on one of the Greek temples. The team is very friendly and helpful. The food is very honest, simple with a lot of flavor. The local fish was very fresh and delicious.
With visited the restaurant twice for dinner, both times same quality. An excellent price/quality ratio.

After 2 hours enjoying the temples and ruins we made the short walk from the archaeology area exit and was made very welcome by the owner and staff. Service was quick particularly the drinks as we were desperate to quench our thirst.

A combination of pizza and paster and salad - simple food, simply delicious. Clean surrounds and bathrooms. Could have easily lingered longer discussing the ancient world but only for the timetable we had to keep.

Not the smartest looking restaurant and service, for us, was hampered by limited English. However, contrary to the review given by your Italian contributor, we were very happy with our meal and it was certainly good value. Mozzarella needed a sharp knife to cut it, but it was very tasty, as was the prosciutto. Our pizza was the Simposium with just about everything and was very enjoyable. There seemed to be a very wide range of pizza. We were not offered an English menu.

Tasty food, freshly made with love, with a view over the temples, reasonably priced with a car park at the back. Mostly seemed too be frequented by lots if Germans when we where there, we went back once we discovered it. Happy too have young kids and had a high chair
