We have been eating at Asteras for years. Great food, lovely atmosphere and exceptional people. Whether you are a meat eater, you love fish or you have a vegetarian with you there is food galore for everyone. And the deserts are incredible. .

Hello, I have not had either of these items at Asteras so I'm sorry I cannot help you with your questions. My best suggestion would be to have spoken with the wait staff/manager of your concerns/questions.
