The restaurant itself Didn't Look good so went in and They Sat us down! We waited ten minutes to order drinks What was ok considering it was full. We ordered the food but it was taking ages so I asked a nice waiter (tall guy). He went to check and two minutes later another rude waiter comes with our main courses. I told him we had ordered a started and for our astonishment his answer was: It's on the grill, do you want it or NOT??? This was exactly 35 minutes after we sat down. The food is average, nothing special at all. The problem was that there were only bothered about getting more people in so they kept cleaning tables and sitting customers they couldn't even serve.

Dear customer
My name is George Stakias and I am professional cook.
Usually I don't answering in the Trip Advisor reviews because I respect everybody's opinion,but in this case I feel that I have answer to your review.
You start your review writing that the restaurant didn't look nice from the start.if that was true why you came to eat nobody force you to come in and I will tell you that I don't know if it is nice but my restaurant is very clean and have all the lisences from the Greek law to serve 140 customers and we are doing that for more than ten years with success.
Second you are writing that the second waitor was rude.Was rude because he asked if you still want your sausage grilled and because for some reason we made a mistake and we served you the main dishes without serving the starter?
Your order was a sausage grilled a moussaka and a spicy meatballs giaourtlou.
You said that the food was not nice at all but when the polite waitor a tall guy as you write came to pick up your plates they were empty.so how come a person that is complaining about the food that is not good is eating it all the food and leaving empty plates.
Sorry for me is not normal because usually if you don't like the food you have one or two bites and then you leaving it on the side.
Also when you left my wife and co partner when she asked if you have nice meal your husband told her that you didn't get your starter and that you also have restaurants in Spain and in England
and also you in a rude way you told her that you will write a bad comment in trip advisor.
I still believe that to leave a bad comment is not a threat for restaurant because from our mistakes we are getting better.
But I don't respect the comments like yours because I am very sure that we didn't do anything wrong in this case.
And we still believe that we are human beings and we are making mistakes.
And a missing sausage is not a mistake that is effecting to a normal person's happiness.
Thank you and I hope that you read my answer

This place is great. The food was so good. I had the best grilled sardines ever. Even better than the ones served in Toremolinos in Spain(which I thought would be impossible to beat). The stuffed squid is really tasty. The waiter and busboy did a great job. It is located 50 steps from the views of the volcano.

We went there in a big group with friends of the owner so let me just start to say that the service was very good but it could have been biased.
The food was lovely and typical (much more than i expected from the location), and the dishes came out pretty quickly.
I have nothing bad to say about this place, we had a very lovely and pleasant evening. I would definitely recommend it.

I went here twice. Their food is fresh and a modern take on traditional taverna fare. The place is clean, comfortable, and spacious and the service is attentive. Outside dining is available, and the view is very good. Prices are more than reasonable considering the excellent meals offered.
