Great food and even better atmosphere. I sincerely recommend, you will feel at home your mom. I was there three times trying musaka, dakos, greek salad, biftek and perfect squid. The owners are so adorable that I didn't want to looking for any other restaurant.

Very friendly and hospitable family tavern, they truly love what they do. Delicious cuisine with fresh ingredients carefully chosen from local small farms. The most of the clients are repeated and that's saying a lot! Thank you Giannis for the great afternoon!
