I have eaten in this taverna several times now and I love it. The food is delicious and reasonably priced and the service is very good. The location is beautiful and very relaxing and the taverna is often full of Greeks, which gives it a lovely authentic atmosphere. I love it here and will return time and time again!

The calamari was huge but we found it a bit bland and there was no dipping sauce to go with it. The spaghetti was good but nothing special. The dessert was really good. The service wasn't overly friendly but prompt. I must... More

We have been here a few times and would highly recommend this family owned restaurant. They have a large indoor seating area, but best is the outdoor area right -on - the - beach.
