Great, genuine Greek seafood with excellent service since 3 generations. We had their signature dishes, Zefyros King Prawns. You have to try it!

Very lovely family restaurant offering very good food with simple but very nice menu. The food was hot and tasted lovely. The honey and cinemmon liqueur after dinner is fab.

In the best spot in town in the old harbour, this is far above the tourist traps around it. The fish is always fresh and well prepared, the welcome is genuine, the view sensational. Very highly recommended.

Great restaurant - super fresh fish some of the best I have eaten. The house wine was amazing and the staff superb. I can’t fault this restaurant. There is no hard sell as there doesn’t need to be one !
