Excellent place to eat such delightful original Greek food. It was recommended from locals and, when we went there, it surpassed our expectations in everything! The ambient makes it romantic and same time social. The food was exquisite. The Wine was delicious. I strongly recommend this place!

Hotzas is a very nice local Tavern, and a must try if you're in Chios. The place is very traditional Greek, and very cozy. A great place for Meze - the food is absolutely delicious.
