Excellent restaurant with a good service, menu and reasonable prices. For this reason, we had lunch and supper. In both our meals the place was packed by tourists and locals.

Went there and ordered takeaway. They were very accommodating and food tasted great. Lamb chops never tasted so good. They even drove me to my hotel and offered complementary desert. Highly recommended

We went here on the recommendation of our hotel owner (Meteoritis hotel). We loved it! The menu is great, staff were friendly and the food was excellent. Chicken souvlaki was lovely and the greek salad was very nice too. I definitely recommend it!

Classic Greek food, very good. We sat outside in the front of the restaurant with a nice view of the square. Couple of cats roaming around but this is pretty common in Greece.

Had dinner one night, Musaka and Tsiziki were good, steak was overdone. Place is very popular but there are other options which are not as popular but are better
