Good food here which didn't break the bank. Very attentive service. Ordered kleftico x2 and veal in tomato sauce. We had a seat close to the water and later moved to softer seats to enjoy the good live music which started off Greek style and then moved through a good selection of popular songs. A most enjoyable evening and would... More

Surprised how low down this restaurant is in the ratings perhaps it is because it is a little way away from the main square.

We found this restaurant on the 4th night of our holiday, and subsequently went back every night for the remainder. It is perfect. The location is right beside the water on the bay, excellent comfortable furniture and not crowded or cramped. The owner and staff are very attentive and friendly, without being intrusive. Bread, rolls, taramasalata, and bottled water were... More

The owner is a true gentleman who genuinely cares that your experience at he's restaurant is a special evening. We walked past he's venue a few days, but decided to give it a go. We weren't dissapointed. We had a set meal & the food was fantastic. Will definitely return again. Thanks
