We were the only people there at 6 pm and so had our pick of the outside tables, but it was getting busier as we left. Everything we ordered was delicious and the service was attentive. Portions sizes were a bit small from what we had had at other restaurants and having skipped lunch, in hindsight we should have also ordered a salad, as our neighbor's salad looked amazing.

Small menu for greek restaurant but everything we tried was delicious. Greek food can be a little repetitive so having something different was refreshing Lovely waiters were really accommodating. Choice between street and garden tables. What not to like?!

Lovely but busy restaurant sat outside in little alleyway. Liked that they have a little bench with cushions in the street for people to consider menu. Food nice enough but what we had unremarkable but I would go back.

I don’t have words to describe how delicious this food is, particularly the prawns in ouzo and the shish kebab. There’s a wonderful, unique flavor. The service is very friendly and the atmosphere just lovely. They have a back garden or an area in the front looking into the alley. Both are nice depending on what vibe you’re looking for. We’ve had excellent food in Crete but this one takes the price. Not to be missed.
