This place can easily be missed as it's off the main drag and mainly upstairs (although there is a small interior dining area downstairs which looked nice) , I would encourage anybody visiting to seek it out. The guy is really so nice and friendly and the food is quite simply stunning! I have a real liking for good Greek... More

This Taverna is upstairs - so it could easily be missed. We Booked a table and the staff were eager to please, we had a table overlooking the street. Good typical greek food, just lacked a little atmosphere - but would go again for the food.

We had a lovely evening at this rooftop restaurant. I wasn't particularly struck by the restaurant itself but the welcome was great. The staff clearly want you to have a relaxing time and try to slow the pace down so you do enjoy the evening. The food was superb I had Kleftiko and my husband Stifado followed by homemade cheesecake... More

We were there early (7pm) as our flight left later that night, so we were the only people in the restaurant, but the staff were attentive and helpful. The Greek Salad was really nice - it had croutons in it which I hadn't had before. The Souvlaki was the best I had all holiday; big chunks of moist meat. At... More

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved this place. Lovely quiet location and beautifully built restaurant. Traditional blue and white colour stone building, stunning wooden furniture with little designs on the back. Food was very well priced as it was excellent quality. Highly recommend the Greek chicken! Staff were beyond perfect!
