The restaurant has a great vibe. You feel at home quickly. The medzes are all fantastic (the octopus was my favorite) and it also has exceptional mousaka. Reservations are a must.

This place was packed solid every night we were there. Long lines waiting to to east at this quaint little restaurant. A word of caution - if you are fussy or have allergies and can't just go with the items on the menu as prepared this is not the place for you. They are WAY TOO BUSY to try to handle special requests. If you are free to indulge in any food you like - you will enjoy this Greek Taverna. I was literally drooling over the Moussaka. Everything tasted like a home cooked meal. Hearty and satisfying. We had a lamb shank special oozing in its own gravy with potatoes, carrots - delicious!! Get there early or eat late.

The view is nice, but the service and the staff are extremely rude and terrible. Specially the bold waiter. He was late in bringing the menu and his feedback for the delay instead of appologizing was this is our service if you don't like it then leave. So I highly not recommend such a place and specially with such an attitude from unprofessional staff.

Small and cosy place with authentic local dishes that are not served in many restaurants. Good price for the quality of food
