We were recommended this place by a local taxi driver and it didn't disappoint. We were a bit sceptical as it was empty. The food was very very good. Very generous portions. They even ordered us a can to get back to our hotel. Well worth a visit and very reasonably priced.

Very nice restaurant in Hrsonissos, the restaurant is really cosy and the food was delicious, the service was so friendly. We went two nights in a row, and were really satisfied, they served us a large desert platter as a gift and even gave us a bottle of their house wine when we left. Bravo.

This was a lovely family run restaurant with amazing food. We were really well looked after and came back again and again. This restaurant is recommended by the local community and is always busy even at the end of the season. We highly recommend you try this tavern and know that you will enjoy your meal.

We were recommended to this restaurant by our holiday resort. And it was brilliant. We could not get over how reasonable the food prices were. Each course was great, even thought it was their final day before the winter shot down, they still made every effort. Highly recommended.
