“Local, honest, family food.”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

As vegetarians our choice is normally limited, but the family at this restaurant provided us with local vegetarian dishes. Please don't order the tourist food...try something new!! This is a fantastic restaurant!

We came back two nights in a row and chatted to the amazingly awesome mother of the owner - Helen - an 80 year old warm hearted, funny rebel!! Fantastic experience.

We stayed at Minos Hotel - also fabulous!

“Deeelish and friendly.”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

One of the many restaurants on 'bar street', but far superior! Food is traditional, tasty and well priced. Service is friendly and relaxed - you might even get a free Greek lesson!! Highly recommended!

“Gorgeous food and family atmosphere”
Reviewed 3 August 2012

Whenever we go to Agia Galini, we always go to see Ari and his family, for his lovely food, the great atmosphere and also to see his lovely family. I would thoroughly recommend. My particular favourites are the chicken wings with soy sauce for the starter and the lamb chops for the main!!! Beautiful!!!

“Just great!”
Reviewed 28 July 2012

Great fresh food, big plates full as well! Time for us to go on a diet after all the delicious home cooked Greek meals we had in this welcoming restaurant, runned by a lovely Greek family. Very welcoming and atentive atmosphere. Recommendation: grilled pork with honey sauce and the saganaki shrimps. Enjoy!
