We visited this Taverna in early October, when they were less busy. The staff were very pleasant and attentive. They gave us a small beetroot dish and a small dish of broad beans as an appetiser, which was a very nice touch. Both were very tasty! For our dinner we ordered a Salad to share, as a starter and then... More

We had a lamb stew and chicken with a mushroom sauce. While I liked the sauce and chicken, the fries weren't fully cooked. We did get a free dessert which was a typical cake, I liked it a lot. The staff was very friendly.

Waiter wasn't aware what are the best choices for today. Their seafood salad called after the place was terrible. Tomato soup was OK. Lamp was bad comparing... More

Just came here for the Cretan evening and a drink as we had eaten at our hotel. Friendly family run taverna with lots of memorabilia around. Good friendly atmosphere and dancers encourage everyone to join in with the Greek dancing. Obviously popular,traditional and food looked good.
