Hight density restaurant, but absolutely worth a visit for dinner: Wide selection of tasty foods (including several traditional non-meat items suitable for vegetarians or vegans). Fast service, attentive, every bit professional. Large portions, small prices. Busy street outside but not loud, surprisingly.

This was so good and so plentiful we were still eating the stuffed vine leaves for lunch two days later in our apartment. The portions were the biggest of the week's holiday but that did not undermine the quality. From the plate of butter beans...More

Not made for tourist, you'll find there a typical upmarket Cretan restaurant but better be literate on it to really experiment and discover. Best would be a large table of 6/8 to order a lot and share Excellent food, savory, quickly served and cheap! Greek...More
