“It was OK.”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

It's a home-cooked meal and you choose what goes on your plate from the items prepared for the day in the back. The options didn't look too appetizing so I filled my plate with as many different portions as I could and they were all...OK. Nothing to write home about though. The home-brewed beer was a nice touch, but again, it was only OK. The restaurant is better than most of the touristy restaurants in the area, but only marginally so. I left full but I was hoping for better.

“This is a great find”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

This is non-touristy, traditional, and the kind of restaurant I search for when traveling. You pick your food in the kitchen and it comes out immediately. Nice place to people watch off the main drag.

“Worth searching out”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Situated on Platonos just off the main street. Its definitely worth searching out. This is a traditional taverna still doing things the traditional way. You are shown into the kitchen to choose your food which is excellent. The owner and her brother make every effort to make the experience perfect. Forget all the tourist places around the square and search out this place. You will not be disappointed.

“Dirty grubby looking little cafe”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

Next to a taverna called Yiannis, which looked fractionally better but not much and had some diners eating unlike Boukia Boukia. We walked past several times as we visted Nireas and Romios. The restaurant didn't have a homely feel to it, nor did it appear clean or welcoming. The tables didn't do much to entice us in, there was no menu. The women waitress/cooks looked like they both needed a wash. If you like grubby looking cafes then head here for your home cooked food. I have no idea who gave this place excellent reviews, I have to ask where else have those reviewers eaten if they thought this was 'excellent and 'Good'', McDonalds? My husband and I beg to differ from them. Avoid like the plague and keep walking past. It may be cheap, cheap for a very good reason!

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

If you want excellent real Greek food (not the stuff that's meant to be sold to tourists), this is as good as it gets. It's what you would find at the dinner table if you were from a Greek family. What's really nice is its dishes have a Rhodian influence with regional herbs and spices. And how many restaurants invite you to the back in the kitchen to show you what the specials for the day are?? Lastly, given the quality and authenticity, the prices can't be beat.
