We visited Peri Orexeos based on Rough Guide recommendation and mixed reviews from Trip Advisor. We were welcomed with open arms and the friendly service continued throughout the evening. We were disappointed with some of our meals, the moussaka bland and dry but the lamb...More

The place looks very nice. Staff is very friendly. Food was not that special, not very flavorful, although it took quite long to prepare.

We ordered too much food, and on top of this, they provided not one free dessert, but two as well as some Tsipouras (strong alcohol like Ouzo without the sugariness). So we began with a beet salad with some local soft ricotta like cheese. It...More
