What a fabulous way to spend Mother's Day. Staff rushed off their feet but Everyone's whims catered for. I had some dietary requirements which were catered to with no problem. I would certainly recommend this fabulous restaurant for an authentic Greek meal and great outlook.

From the time we walked in and warmly greeted by Lilly the dining experience was outstanding. The food was as good as anything we had in Greece. Not many places on the coast offer water views with a Surfers skyline. This place has it all.
