Tried to eat at this restaurant, but was turned away as they were apparently busy, even though there were loads of empty tables with reserved signs. Explained that we would be quick at eating, as we had children and they needed to be fed, but they would not give us a table, even though one of the reservations was in... More

Eaten here many times over the years and last night was as good as ever. 4 of us chose a different meal each and we were all happy. No problems with sevice or the cost of the meal but make sure you are hungry because the portions are on the large side. The free Raki is really good.

What a beautiful position this restaurant is in. Right in the square in the old town opposite a little church where you can sit and watch the world go by. The staff are really friendly and the food good. Beware though when you order, whilst you are waiting you get a large slice of garlic bread with sun dried tomato... More

What a lovely taverna this proved to be. We decided to have our meal upstairs which proved to be a delightful experience. The ambience of the taverna was a joy. Really enjoyed our meal which was reasonably priced and washed this down with the local rose wine. Well worth a visit.
