I had grilled octopus which was very fresh and perfectly cooked. My friend had sardines which were also fresh. Good service and average price (which I find quite pricey). They serve 'meals' so you get chips and salad with the order. Strange practice for Greece but no doubt it suits the tourists. I recommend you eat fresh fish if you... More

We eat here several times - always in the restaurant part across the road under the umbrellas. The staff were efficient and our food was good, despite been in Greece we didn't actually eat any Greek food in here mainly Italian for some reason.

Tried this restaurant which was neither the best or worst during our stay. Not highly priced with friendly service.

The restaurant is at the beach promenade of Lixouri. It has a nice decor. The food was good but a bit overpriced. 3.50€ for a mushroom soup with no mushrooms is a bit too much.

Service was good. Waitress was lovely. Attentive and helpful. Food came very quickly. Maybe too quickly. Food was ok. My wife had moussaka which she liked and I had Kefalonian meat pie which was tasty but on the dry side. We also shared a Greek salad which was great. Wine and beer good. Where they lost marks was at the... More
