Traditional dishes are stunning in this tavern. Ask for the dish of the day, especially cooked by Mrs Irene, owner's mother.

We popped in for lunch, and the service has excellent friendly and welcoming, we had a salad, fava and Dakos,which was fine. The complimentary Raki was good and it was a pleasant view sitting and watch the world go by.

Had a good experience last year, so I popped in on my way through this time.. The owner is the waiter and although he hasn't got good interpersonal skills he does a very good job of ensuring everyone is served and no one is left waiting.

Excellent food. The two children had pasta dishes, portions are huge and they loved them. We went for the meat platter and it was delicious. Lovely added extras at the end. Whole meal including wine and drinks around €45. Would recommend.

Really made to feel welcome and good value house wine. Fresh fish was a little vinegary and the moussaka was quite good. Service was average but could do with improving food quality as it was pretty quiet in there mid evening. Good lighting and nice atmosphere though.

One of our best restaurant experiences ever. During a 9 day stay we ate at this restaurant 4 times and were never disappointed. The restaurant overlooks the harbour with lovely views beyond. Michaelis the owner is a most welcoming host and a lot of fun. The food cooked by his mother is first rate. Highly recommended!

This is the best fish restaurant that I have dined in, the food was excellent and well presented. The chips are fresh and hand made. The prices are reasonable. I also noticed that a lot of locales eat here if you enjoy good food then fanis is a must.
