Had lunch with a friend at Melilotos the other day and enjoyed every single dish we had. We went for a Greek salad with a twist, grilled cheese from the island of Chios (Mastelo), and chicken schnitzel with fries. They were all delicious and good-sized...More

Few tables there are so, do go before 22.00! Service is OK, though nothing spectacular but to the point we get: the food is a mixture of tradition and exotic touches all combined to melt in your mouth and reveal rich flavours. I was annoyed...More

Nice location in the midst of the fabric shops. Pleasant decor. Not very friendly service. The food is not your usual taverna fare: most dishes they said are from Crete or Chios. The dishes were tasty but enormous!

Sardines were excellent, fresh and tasty. Decent prices too. Also try the stuffed chicken leg, very good too.

I ordered the beef giouvetsi and it didn't disappoint! The food amount of food was just right as the dish was really filling.

Great Greek food but not the typical taverna dishes. Good Prize, Quality and Quantity! It is one of the best restaurants at city centre!

The hors d'oeuvres are fabulous and the main selections from a daily changing menu live...More

Nice and cozy place with delicious food. We had chicken and beef hamburgers - both were perfect, with onions (chicken) and mushrooms (beef), home made chips with herbs... Very friendly stuff. Highly recommended.

Tasteful food, not very big portions but very creative and tasty. Great environment for no smokers. The price is a little over budget for the portions.

Description
Downtown, busy and small family restaurant, with a few tables outside. Fresh, local food with a twist, cooked with love and best quality ingredients. It is placed among cafes and bars, so it is the right place to feel the rythm of the city!
