Pizza's were frozen, soggy based and topped with overly excessive amounts of awful tasting cheese, artificial ham and mushrooms out of a bottle.

Frozen pizzas topped with jarred vegetables and ham from a packet. Stale bread and artificial ingredients in everything. Avoid at all costs, or stick to Greek salad and chips.

It is a nice and spacious taverna. We have experienced very good service. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. The food is nicely serviced and is delicious. We enjoyed listening to nice Greek music (we found it nice that since there were a lot of tourists they did not put the English music, but stayed with the Greek one).... More

We went to this restaurant about 2pm, ordered our meal. We chose simple food, but it took more than an hour to get our meal. We were very hungry. Finally the food arrived, which was ok, but nothing extraordinary. I would not recommend this place.
