Had a lovely meal at portside. I had the rabbit kefalonia style with rice and it was very tasty indeed. My wife had salmon with grilled vegetables. Cooked just right. Good service and price.

We were here in holiday, we like Greek people, but I can not put more than 2 stars to this restaurant, and it is even too much. Service approximate, food not very good, atmosphere old (not vintage...) Not to come again

One of several restaurants along the water. Unassuming setting. A little cheaper than others. Had the lamb , salad and beans. All good. Night breeze was real nice
