Food is actually really good, but if your restaurant is trying to be best in town, you gotta listen to your customers. Even you (owner) have different opinion, it's better not to start arguing with us. All the best but we don't meet anymore.More

Great, friendly service. Very good food. Large, well presented portions. Maybe not as authentic Greek as some restaurants in Kolymbari and certainly more expensive than some we have enjoyed this week.
