A bit out of town but a lovely interesting place to eat. Good service and nice veggie food. Had a lovely evening here, just a bit hot in the bit we were in, that's my only complaint.

The location is at back off the road and is a lovely setting. The staff are all fantastic, helpful, friendly and always smiling. The food is excellent, the best mousaka and kefalonian meat pie I’ve tasted. Can’t recommend this enough.

Great Taverna, a little bit off from the beach but worth the walk. Clearly family run, very authentic food, nicely presented. Service very good. Possibly a little bit tired in certain areas - if i hadn't read the reviews on Tripadvisor the outside/roadside area would...More
