We were recommended to come here by our hotel. I only wish we came here sooner. When we walked in it was quiet but almost every table was reserved. We took a seat at the back and poured over the menu. All of this Greek food sounded tasty and there was something for everyone. To start we had the spicy... More

I have been there many times in different occasions and I will do it again and again and again! Excellent food for meat lovers! Delicious starters and salads too in big portions!

We came here by chance and managed to catch a table. The pork knuckle is marvelous in size and quality. The staff is very friendly, the atmosphere almost family style. A place to visit with high hospitality.

We ordered roasted pork leg, pork steaks, beef with gnocchi, safran rissoto and a kouzinerie salad with pasteli. For a dessert we had a glorious Millefeuille. I strongly recommend it. The prices are a bit high, but the quality and the service is extraordinary.

we expected a real steak, but that wasn't. the taverna is very small, so your neighbours are nearly sitting on your table. the salad was delicious, but to be honest there are better places in the neighbourhood with better prices. it is very expensive!

Great restaurant, with a lot of American/Latino vibes. Clearly if you like to eat meat, perfectly cooked to suit your taste, this is the place to be. As soon as you open the menu you'll want to order the entire thing. Try the artichoke pie, cheddar mashed potatoes and don't miss the pork knuckle. One of the best I've ever... More

As soon as you walk inside the restaurant, the exquisite smell of the slowly cooked meat and other treats hit you right on the spot, you know you are in for a treat, and as walking through smiles sitting on tables feasting on glory, you become part of a happy family whose hardest call is to chose what to eat...

Fantastic environment. Close to harbor and the city center. Quick service. Very polite staff that always smile. Great decoration. The tastes are excellent. Try everything if u have the chance! Good variety of wines. Good prices. If u order the dessert sometimes they offer u another (different) one! When living , don't forget to say 'congratulations' to the chef !!

Recommended by the receptionist at our hotel so gave it a try. This restaurant specialises in meat and the quality was excellent. It suited my husband as he loves red meat and he enjoyed a pork dish. I had the best salad of my holiday - it was different to most and had bacon, cheese and sesame seed crunch in... More
