We stopped in with our young baby after a long road trip. The whole experience was just great. Really friendly lady serving and food was incredible - huge portions too. We only have a day in the locality or we’d be back! Thanks!

Better than many restaurants in Greece. Outstanding food, good service, generous helpings. Located in a lovely old house. Very busy, reservations are helpful.
