Like many people when we find a restaurant we really like, we tend to keep going back. We did try other places, but this restaurant ticked all our boxes so we kept going back.
The taverna itself is family owned and could be considered basic - but it has an honesty and charm and doesn't suffer the pretensions of some other eateries in the town. Portions are large, the house wine (we only had the red) is very palatable and the cost very reasonable.
The food itself is excellent, I had a lamb kleftiko on their specials night, and it was one of the best I've had - traditionally cooked in paper and it was clear that it had been freshly cooked as it came steaming out of the oven. It was a popular dish as they had all gone by 8:00pm, which is the official opening time! Other dishes were just as good though and we always left very full indeed. A definite recommend.

Fantastic taverna not far from the church. Over a number of nights we tried Moussaka, kleftico, lemony chicken, Baklava, sardines, salad, gyros and all were good. However, if you are sitting in this is not a place to be if you are in a hurry..relax and soak it all up.

Went last night Monday 25th September, arrived at 8 p.m.
ordered within 5 minutes, starter arrived at 9 p.m.
About 36 people in only one person taking orders, she worked
extremely hard but the the kitchen was very slow.
The food was good although two portions of lamb chops came
with medium and well done mixed up on the plates.
More people cooking and another serving would appear to be the answer, we would not go again.

Fantastic little restaurant serving food to die for! Excellent service and value for money too. We ate there many times over our three week stay.

Had a very nice meal here five large spicy meatballs & potatoes as nice as it was I struggled they had plenty of chilli and tobasco sauce a very busy restaurant always full with a great atmosphere only downside if your sitting at the wrong tables it is a bit tight for room if I could I would give it 4.5 and not 4
Worth a visit
