Thanks to Gianni, Stella and family they always serve the best food with a fast and courteous service. Their beetroot and garlic salad is our favourite with their sausages! Located in a prime location on the seafront in Kalyves. Well worth a visit.

The taverna is split in 2 parts, the bigger section is no smoking & has the signs but the smaller section facing the sea is for smokers. But in the summer most of the tables are outside anyway.
