We have dined here in the past (around four years ago) and it has not changed in that it is still very good. The food is excellent, good service,. everything about it is good. We will be back next year.

Away from the waterfront but worth seeking out, this small family restaurant has a huge popular following.We were attracted to it after walking past the premises in the late afternoon and noticed many hands busily preparing many dishes with local vegetables and produce before the premises opened for the evening. Noticing our interest the proprietor invited us to view the... More

Lovely looking old taverna side street in Vathy. Very welcoming and place was busy, so we thought we would give it a go. Food on the spit looked great, however, thats where the good news ends. Sat underneath a dripping air con unit which was stuffed with paper towels to catch the drips but staff were lovely. We were really... More

A little away from the waterfront, but always very busy with a nice and lively atmosphere. The restaurant offers a lot of different dishes that are served in rather big portions at very reasonable prices. If you like grilled meat or fish this is the place to go. Friendly but at times extremely busy staff!

A very busy restaurant but food brilliant and plentiful -- staff very helpful and obliging despite being run off their feet --as all tables seemed full of yacht crews with enormous appetites-- we had a lovely meal and still left loads on our plates

Busy restaurant and yes they do need to get bums on seats when you are only charging 30euros for suckling pig, lamb, a beer and 1/2 litre of wine!! Nice buzz, rushed but friendly staff .... Well worth giving it a go. It's not on the waters edge, but just behind the square.

we visited this place 4 times in a week because it was simply excellent and could not be improved upon by any other place in Vathy. Busy, yes, because it was so good, but the food was freshly cooked every day on a spit and every dish we had was delicious and a generous helping. Lovely family who runs it... More

Good atmosphere , lively popular restaurant . Sadly the quality of the food didn't match the ambience , with dishes over cooked and dry and as busy times the staff struggle to keep up with demand .
