Set back from the main tourist area on a back street but don't let that put you off...a beautiful restaurant. Food is top quality authentic Greek - the lamb is sublime. Just be careful when ordering lamb - my girlfriend ordered lamb chops but the...More

Excellent food, wine and service. There is also live music on Friday and Saturday most of the season. A quieter location away from the Main Street but well worth the walk. Giorgos, Apostolis, Sonja and Giorgos' parents have, in four seasons, created one of the...More

We came for lamb, we left entirely satisfied. We didn't even get to taste the famous "lamb on the spit" due to timing misfortune, but all the food that Apostolos served us at Meraki was just delicious.

Perfect. The owner is friendly and the food is made with passion. Try the souvlaki or the stifado. Really liked that the staff remembered us whe we arrived. Where the 4 Times in 2 weeks

Cracking atmosphere with views down to the sea. Service attentive without being overbearing. The food is on another level. Meat is tender, the sauce excellent, at a cost that is fantastic value. Just a lovely place to eat.

Had an amazing time over at Meraki. The very cosy setting caught our eyes as we entered the establishment. We were welcomed, and guided to our table. Our host, Giorgos (who later revealed himself as the owner), was a very friendly, warm and honest man....More
