We were bitterly disappointed with the quality of the food, which did not rise above that of a fastfood joint. The calamari rings were tough and in doughy batter, while the Dorado steak (the special of the day) had a stale oil smell. Only redeeming...More

Local calamari fried with chips was very nice. Greek salad was the same as the garnish with the calamari plus feta so not great. Coffee terrible. Pleasant friendly service.

Ordered the mussel starter, was full of oil, and just a few tiny mussels. Inedible. Also full of grit. The bread that accompanied it was not homemade and dry. Waitress was friendly however. Good location. It is a pity.

The best seafood I ever ate. It is very clear that this is a place where friends like to meet and eat. You sit right on the harbour's edge on the first floor which give a very good view over the harbour and the sea
