Ok food but a little to tasteless and dry. Prices are ok and the service is good. Often some kind of live music.

Just round the corner from the Ibiscus hotel. Excellent choice of both traditional greek and european food. All presented beautifully by staff who are so friendly. Live music for you to enjoy - but not intrusive if you want a quiet dining experience. I can't wait to return.

Oh my oh my. Like the food came out of the freezer. Disgusting rice and chicken souvlaki, courgette and carrot tasting like nothing. Under seasoned meal with tasteless fries. Unwelcoming staff, pressuring us into a drink. Felt very rushed. Want my money back. Ughl.

Came across this place looking for a nice, traditional looking taverna. Drawn in by the live musician playing acoustic guitar, which was nice to listen to. We had 2 main courses, both were traditional greek dishes, which were delicious, although not the biggest portions. Price was reasonable too.
