“A very Greek experience..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2011

If you like your meals fast and you just want to grab a bite and go... Don't eat here it is not for you.......... If on the other hand you want to experience how the Greeks like to spend their evenings and are happy to while away several hours in the company of friends in glorious surroundings while soaking up the music and the atmosphere then this is the place to be..

It is always busy here... it's where all the Greeks and ex pats come... doesn't that tell you something??.. We have never had a bad meal here ....and have always had slow ones!.. Yes the chances are you are going to wait a while to be served .depending on the time and numbers of patrons... that's the time to drink and talk and enjoy each other's company.. it's what eating 'out' is all about!... The food here is lovely - ask about the fish of the day - always good and my favourite is the lemon lamb (or lamp as it is written in the menu).. This is a place for families, friends and lovers - it is gorgeous.. Love it love it love it.. if you're lucky you'll witness locals getting up to dance to traditional songs and everyone joining in the singing and clapping... whether you understand the language or not. Magda the host (not an old lady at all- how rude), will always take time to sit with her guests and ask after them - on our very first visit they told my then 16 year old they would get her her own Alexanddros t shirt so she could 'work' there... and when we returned - there it was wating for her - in pink, with her name on!.. They didn't know us from Adam but they appreciated our custom as we appreciated theirs.. it's reciprocal. Anyway, if you want to spend a few hours of good food wine ouzo raiki etc etc with friends then do try it you will not be disappointed - if you want to eat and run - you won't like it at all and to be honest - you're missing the point of your Greek holiday! ;)

“Insulting!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2011

Everytime we walked past this restaurant it was packed so assumed it was something a bit special. Down in the old town and set it a courtyard it does seem very pleasant at first. Decided to give it a go on our second to last night of our amazing 2 week holiday and I can not even begin to tell you how disappointed we were. The service wasn't just awful it was insulting, once we were seated we got the feeling the waiters job was done. Ordered drinks and then waited 30 mins for them to arrive, when we mentioned this to the main guy we were given such dirty looks and then had the wine practically thrown at us, not even an apology for the wait. When the starters arrived I was quite shocked at how poor the quality was. The restaurant is always packed and often has 2-3 couples waiting to be seated but I was totally underwhelded by the quality, some looked/tasted like it had been sitting around for weeks. As for the main course, well, we were still sitting with our dirty starter plates in front of us when it arrived, 20 mins and no one could be bothered to clear them from us! My fiance had the lamb with lemon. A fatty chunk of meat with 20+ greasy potatoes! I had the meatballs which arrived cold and with a side of birdseye microwave veg. At this point the service and food were really starting to wind me up and the night was at serious risk of being ruined so we decided to get the bill and cut our losses. We asked for the bill then waited AGAIN about 10 minutes for it to arrive. No one would glance at our table and we felt so fed up, ignored and insulted. Finally they took our money and had the audacity to ask if we'd like change from a 50 for a meal costing 30 euros'!!! Apart from someone asking what we wanted and slamming the food down in front of us no one had bothered to even acknowledge our pressence. To say this meal was a disappointment is a huge understatement. As with some other reviewers I would advise to avoid at all costs.
