We tried many different Greek dishes and everything was very good. The waitstaff and owner were very friendly. Our dessert that was " gratis' was the best watermelon I have had in awhile. I would recommend this restaurant.

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.
