Lovely decor - you immediately feel transported to a Greek Isle. Staff are friendly and great. The menu is varied and typically Greek. My lunch partner had the sardines and raved about them. I had the chicken livers which were scrumptious. Will be back!

Though the setting of the restaurant under Northcliff Hill resembles the Plaka under the Acropolis that is where it ends. There is nothing authentic about this place. Bland menu. Bland service. No effort whatsoever made to create a Greek atmosphere - playing American Jazz etc...More
