Lovely lunch on the beach. Excellent Greek food and service. The owner is deservedly proud of his restaurant. We won't forget it :).

We gave this place a try because we love Anatolian food and were staying very close by. We liked it so much we came back again. The food is fresh and tasty and the service very attentive. The setting in a garden lit by lanterns just a few feet from the lapping of waves on the beach is unbeatable. If... More

We enjoyed our dinner here. We were happy with our food choices - flavoursome meatballs, and sausages made on the premises. We started with yummy stuffed mushrooms. The ambience is good and the service was friendly and attentive. Recommended.

Amazing food at a great price with the most amazing setting! Went there three times, family run, really friendly service and speaking English wasn't a problem :)

A very welcoming Vassili served us the whole evening. Good English and a patient explanation of the menu. His suggestion of octopus baked in tomato and onion sauce was spot on. Best and most tender octopus we've had anywhere. The spiced apple and yoghurt dessert was delicious and quite different from anything else we've been offered in Greece. Their liqueur... More

This restaurant is overpriced. The service is good and location but I suggest you try to find a more local style restaurant and check the reviews a little harder. This restaurant is 50 percent dearer than the rest of the restaurants we used in Greece.. Don't try the cuttlefish! The prices are probably typical of Paros tourist prices but I'm... More

We were very impressed by this restaurant. When looking around in the afternoon at restaurants in Paros that might be suitable for dinner, the owner/manager kindly showed us all the dishes in the kitchen and gave us some wonderful samples of the delicious food. So of course we wanted to go back which we did in the evening and had... More

Very wide choice of menu with tables down to the water's edge, or inside if you prefer for the traditional dancing. Very good food, well presented and reasonably priced.

This restaurant has recently moved from the port area to a lovely new location on Lividia Beach a bit outside of the hustle & bustle of the port and the old city of Parikia. We were staying nearby and noticed the restaurant was busier the surrounding restaurants so we stopped for supper. We sat at one of the tables on... More
