This tavern has a nice atmosphere and is usually half full - always a good sign. Service is generally fast and efficient; it appears that the owner's children act as waiters. While you study the menu, a glass and jug of water are thoughtfully provided. Bread is served toasted accompanied by what appeared to be two or three hash browns and an onion(?) spread. The quality of the food is good, and the portion sizes are large. The beer is served chilled together with a frozen glass. Typical cost for a salad, main course and a beer (Mythos) is €14.35. The bill is accompanied by a selection of fruit and a glass of raki.

On a back street, running parallel to the sea front, this taverna is an absolute must for anyone after the real Greek cuisine and local colour. It is next to another great taverna - Medousa.

Every meal is home-cooked by the wife of the redoubtable Manousos (the owner); there is always a full plate and the little extras are all free. We had Mezedes, fruit and raki all for nothing. Our main course was very filling anyway and truly authentic, as it is made on the premises and not shipped in like a lot of other restaurants in the village. if you ask for something off the grill, then you can see it being prepared in the barbecue area.

The owner is completely charming, always ready with a greeting and time for a chat.

It is also inexpensive to dine there, and the wine is local and wonderfully tasty.

Sometimes the service can be a little slow, but then you can watch the locals chatting and drinking with each other while you wait.

All in all, a marvellous experience.
