I visited here for lunch on a recent day trip to Symi, and I enjoyed a nice Tuna Salad and house white wine. Nice atmosphere and lovely food too. Well worth a visit.

It's worth foregoing the view of the harbour for at least one night to eat here. We've been going here for more years than I care to admit and the food and service are consistently excellent. If you have a favourite table, it's worth booking...More
