Winding your way up through the back streets behind the old harbour, if you're lucky enough you'll find this family run gem of a taverna. Overlooking Plakes with lovely views (if you visit in daylight hours). A large spacious place with a pretty terrace, we arrived late one night just before closing. The staff and family already seated at a... More

We had 2 meals here during our weeks stay. The first was excellent but the second was not so good. They forgot our order and then when it arrived the standard was nowhere near as good. Also they never offered any reduction or complementary drinks.. Found it to be quite expensive.

There is a nice view but is the only one thing nice. The food it's normal and the service is very slow and the value for money is not the best.

A lovely location but sadly, not a great evening. Slow service, stale bread, feral cats around, seats hard and uncomfortable. My wife had mussel risotto, very poor for 14€. Just 6 edible mussels. My calamari was excellent! In summary, not great and expensive for what we got. Sorry as the lady who served everyone without help, is lovely.

The view from the restaurant is lovely, no doubt. Pricing is average and so was the quality of the food served. However, after ordering our meal we had to wait for two entire hours and that was during the week while the place was not even busy (nor was it a complicated order in any way). I can appreciate the... More

The views are spectacular however the food is badly cooked - lukewarm not hot and overpriced. Left this restaurant hungry. Every other restaurant we have visited in the last 14 days gas delivered well cooked food. Tonight our food was like warm and the customer service was non existent!

The location of this taverna is stunning, you do need to go while there is still some light otherwise you would miss the beauty of the setting. The prices reflect the setting,being rather higher than else where.The food however was good when it arrived.

We discovered this restaurant while on a walking tour. It is set up high on the south side of the Old Town. The garden and views are wonderful, as was the warm welcome we received. We arrived late but when I asked if they were open, the owner simply smiled and said: 'Of course, we are Greeks!' We shared a... More
