We had a lovely relaxing meal in the charming garden. Lovely romantic setting and the crowd was a mix of Greeks and tourists. It’s a great option off the busy port area and the food was very good.

I have been to this place a few times in the past years and it is always great. This time, I had to have a take away (sadly) but the service was still amazing and the food (as always) delicious! Cannot fault anything.
