Attractive restaurant - bit slim on choices as I don't eat fish. I went for meatballs - Hmm -they werent balls and I am not sure what was inside. Sort long things with bread crumbs. All not really worth it.

Great service, delicious food and good value. Stayed in Gouves for 7 days and ate here several times. Highly recommend the stifado and the tiganaki. Antonio makes you feel very welcome. Great place to eat.

Fabulous fresh fish. Sardines, grilled octopus, bream and bass. Caught by the Father and truly delicious. Also the wine was adorable. My friend and I are seasoned travelers and fussy customers and this ticked all our boxes. Excellent attention to detail.
