Had a coffee with ice cream here one day and a beer a couple of days later. They were OK if overpriced. But what I really hate about places like this is the way they importune foreign passersby. From what I saw, the food here...More

This is not a real restaurant it´s a trap to fool you and take so much money as possible from you. Don´t stop and chat with the gyp owner outside the restaurant. A small fat man who just telling lies, talk about football and acting...More

Worst dining experience of my life. Do not believe the lies that the guy out front tells you, the food was badly cooked, service was shocking and the prices were higher than any other taverna in Greece
