Four of us ate there and we waited a long time and then the dishes were not served at the same time. One of us had finished their main course as others were just served theirs. My dish should have been mussels, prawns & clams in a creamy sauce with spaghetti - it was awful! There was no cream sauce, the amount of garlic was nauseating, though there was plenty of mussels I couldn't enjoy them because of the strong garlic taste (and I like garlic) and then there was only 1 large prawn, in a watery, strong garlic sauce. What I thought could have been small scallops in the dish was actually large whole garlic cloves, uncooked and rock hard. All in all a disaster, as my husband's Kleftiko was stewed lamb in a sauce (All be it a tasty sauce} but definitely not the authentic Kleftiko.

The waiter (young guy with tattoos on his arms) was very good and made us feel very welcome. He was striking up a good rapport with all of the customers and seemed to have a lot of repeat business. The food was not bad for the price, the seafood salad could have done with something more than just lettuce and onion, the smoked mackerel wasn't fresh but the sardines and sausage mains we had were fine.
The view is great and they have a nice little private beach area.

Charming taverna right on the beach with a beautiful view. We sat on the patio under a wisteria arbor until it started pouring and had to move inside. Our hosts were gracious and the food was very good. Portions are huge! There are stone steps to get down to the patio and the place is whimsically decorated. Highly recommended!

Best holidays ever! I loved the breakfast, especially the Greek yoghurt, with an amazing view to the sea - and especially the nice people all around :)
