These guys look dangerous, and they are mean and deceitful. They virtually bully you to step inside and then they overcharge you. Never respond to their harassment, just pass them by and go to eat elsewhere. On our first morning in Laganas I and my wife dropped in for a coffee after being insistently asked to do so. They charged... More

Dont bother going in here and wasting your time and money! The staff are rude and overpowering, they grab you and literally drag you in to eat. Avoid this place like the plague. The food was terrible, service was slow and drinks were watered down. Heard a few guests having bad reactions to there food so had a lucky escape!... More

Went here on our first night as we were bullied into going in with the offer of a great deal and the best 'proper proper steak'!! Even at the 12 Euro deal the standard was shocking! A simple pizza was beyond the chefs capabilities! And the steak ended up being fed to the stray dogs outside! Definitely one to avoid

Seen this restaurant wasn't rated really well so maybe things have changed! The food was good, not amazing but actually pretty decent. We had a 10 Euro deal for mains, starters and 4 drinks and everything was alright. You get what you pay for but this was worth more than 10 Euros! The staff were really nice and friendly. I/we...

We had chicken souvlaki which was of a poor quality with a lot of soggy potatoes and very oily pitta. Greek salad was way overpriced for what they had to offer - must have been the most expensive Greek salad that I ate on the island (even in Porto Roxa on top of the cliff with amazing view the salad...
