Within walking distance of where we were staying and one we tried on our first night. We found both the service and the food to be very good. They provide a wide variety of different food styles but we wanted to concentrate on the Greek menu having not been back to Greece for some years. For starters we chose dolmades... More

Setting looks great. Food was not. Had Stiffado and the meal was cold. The meat was as though it had come from a tin. They came and asked how the meal was when we said it was not very good they walked off. We were not sure whether we could leave without paying. We did pay but we're not offered... More

We had a plate of three fish, which was good and stifado. Normally stifado falls apart when you touch it. This one didn't and had to be... More

Our family enjoyed the kind attention of the owner Kostas. The olive oil is delicious and we had fresh caught fish for dinner. Location is up a lane and is surrounded by fields.
