We dined here several times in one week, as we found the other tavernas were mostly disappointing. Good food, friendly service, reasonable prices, interesting decor and ambience. Feeling part of the local community not just for tourists.

Very close to Elafonisi beach one finds this restaurant. We had lunch here. The Gyros was good, service was good, but we were not swept away by it.
