We liked very much this restaurant for many reasons: the staff was very friendly, food was really good not only focused on traditional dishes but also many fish options. One of few restaurants which prepares the kleftiko on the traditional way -without feta cheese- that...More

We ate at this restaurant on one occasion and do not understand why you would expect us to have knowledge of an apartment owner called Sofia. Sorry, Norman
