A family restaurant with good Greek food and a welcoming atmosphere. Stuffed tomatoes or stuffed peppers our favorites, also a good Moussaka.

It’s a lovely little restaurant with amazing food in the fairytale village of Ios. The best thing is that they are open at siesta time, so if you’re late for lunch this is where you should head. The ambiance is super cute and the owner...More

Good food but the place lacks atmosphere. The serving staff are on the run giving any additions to their orders that are lined up on the controllers desk, this dosn't create a good vibe

A wonderful little find in the heart of IOS. Friendly and accommodating staff. Delicious home cooked Greek food. Great serving sizes. Visited this restaurant twice during our stay in IOS. A wide selection to choose from, recommend ordering a few different dishes and sharing.

As I remember it, there were lots of vegetarian options available. I certainly had peppers and tomatoes stuffed with rice and herbs, which were delicious.
