Seriously average food and that's kind, miserable service. This place benefits from being on the square. If you want great food eat off the square. If you want to eat on the square go to ouzo!!

I tried this place in Jan 1. One of the few places open that day. Everything we ate here was great and surpassed our expectations. Great dishes and flavors. The only downside was that the food wasn't hot enough when it got to the table....More

Nice location but they are really jacking the price of most dishes. There are few garnishes or vegetables with the main pates requiring an additional salad plate. Automatic addition of 10% propina we were not impressed

My wife and I have been coming to this place for years. It is always good, all the seafood plates are amazing. Garlic stone crabs are our favorite.
