Quantity: small of meat and fish, a lot of potatoes. Quality : nothing special, you normally eat much better in Greek restaurants. Our fish was too cooked and dry, chicken not tasty and dry. Very touristic. Price: average. If you can, go somewhere else.

Atmosphere is great because of Fotis Volakakis. The basic material they use is from local village or their own garden.
