Nice food. But not outstanding. Service... I have seen definitely better in other places (... it was almost fully booked). Good variety of food. Was a good evening.

The food was Ok but not great, as expected by a Cretan taverna. Service was a bit slow. Prices were Ok - price for value was average. Environment was nice, not with a seaside though

My husband and I ate breakfast here and I spilled my Greek coffee all over myself and the chair and the ground after I got stung by a bee. (That is the one downside-the bees because of the beautiful carob tree). As I'm sure you...More

We came here for dinner wanting simple, traditional Greek food and that's what we got. It was a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by and the food was excellent. Extremely good value too!

A lovely setting with great staff and delicious food. We tried the homemade carrot cake and cheesecake and they were both incredibly enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this place and wish our hotel was closer to Plaka so we could visit again and try the...More

Our company is located in a small seaside village. In our space homemade traditional cuisine with fresh local ingredients leading to the remarkable wine list of local organic producers, and in combination with the user-friendly interface and highly trained staff creates a valuable option for relaxation and enjoyment. Our shop serves traditional breakfast with fresh fruit juices, homemade cakes and pies. You can choose from our menu, appetizers and main dishes cooked with love and respect to raw materials. Do not forget to try the excellent Tarama and homemade pie Mrs. Ritchie. Also a very interesting proposition is the cocktail serve with fresh ingredients. Occasionally we organize musical evenings with local music without microphones and sound installations, so that we become a company.
