We had a fabulous meal here. Chicken curry was fantastic. We had walked past a couple of times. The smell is enticing. They are tea towels hanging from the ceiling from other great full customers from all over England. Need I say more.

We were here only once, Mousaka is good, gyros is ok, but in Nidri you can find better place with better atmosphere and prices.

Situated on the main street of Nidri. This is the first time I have ever felt rushed or hassled in a Greek taverna. OK they were busy but one just felt that they wanted you to order quickly, eat up and get out. My companion said his steak was fine but my chicken was seriously under cooked, when I bought... More

We loved this place. The food was excellent, the service very friendly. We recommend the SHRIMPS SAGANAKI, Olives, Gyros and tzatziki. We ate two times because of the delicious food.

Extravagant owner of the eatery, former circus artist, runs this place with humor and fun. Food is well presented - grilled shrimps, mousaka, staffed wineleaves. Everything is cooked with nice flavors and quality ingredients. By 8 p.m. all tables are taken. Good prices versus excellent food quality. Kitchen towels from all around the globe had been given to Ola Kala... More

We went here after reading some reviews on trip advisor and it didn't disappoint! We wanted a steak and whilst they didn't have the rib eye we would've liked on the menu George(the owner) was more than happy to accommodate us by organising a beautiful T-bone steak that was cooked to perfection! A very friendly and busy restaurant with George... More
