Really good Greek food and the lovely Mary and Gary. We have been to Vasiliki many times and always go to the Penguin. Treat us so well, good food and we love sitting by the waterfront. Last visit was 2015 but hope to see them again soon. July and Barry. X

Had the gyros at EUR1.80 - great value for money. Nice location at the harbour and ice cold beers on tap. Recommend it.
