Delicious family meal here, great service and fantastic views over the bay. Worth the walk up the hill. Stuffed tomatoes were particularly tasty. Good value too.

This restaurant has its own farm, which produces its vegetables, and also its own vineyard for wine. Food was delicious and very reasonably priced.

Whether you join us in the day or the evening you will be delighted not just with the traditional homemade Greek cuisine, but with the outstanding and exclusive view across Vasiliki bay. In the evening the restaurant comes alive and has a wonderful warm family atmosphere. With 30 years experience it is no wonder people come back time after time.
