This has to be one of the best tavernas in Paleros - of the beaten track, family run. The food was really good - very Greek but everything was just cooked so well! Will be back!

I ate here with my husband on a date night during our fortnight at Vounaki. It felt very romantic and rustic sitting in the court yard and had a very traditional Greek feel. It boasts being the oldest restaurant in town. The food was plentiful...More

Description
Unlke most restaurants along the beach in Paleros, this one is hidden away in an old square a little bit away from the seafront. However, it was by far the best we ate at. We didn't order from a menu, the owner prepared several dishes for six of us using fish that was fresh that day.
