a really nice family restaurant, with a great atmosphere a alley back from the port/beach.
Huge variety of dishes, meat, fish and vegan. Ordered a typical mixed grill, my girlfriend ordered a fish mix plate. My dish was very satisfying, well cooked and with a lot of taste. The mixed fish plate were a sad plate to look at, but the amount and taste were good. Should have been better presented. But, a lot of back alley cats.. So no food left on the plate :)
Overall a decent restaurant, with great and service minded staff.

I am very sorry but despite all the positive reviews this place doesn't deserve more than a poor review!. We travelled all over Greece since many years and this Taverna serves really average to poor dishes. Lot of garlic, poorly fried stuff and souvlaki hard as stone. Didn't try fish tonight but I surely won't give it another chance..... Above all, the quality of service is following the same line as the food , thumbs down !!

The food is average -both meat and fish - as well as the starters. The goat meat was overcooked. Fish was served with oven potatoes that did not match at all.

We ate here twice,on our first visit we weren't very impressed with the service. We did think of going elsewhere, then the waiter came over so we decided to stay.
We decided to order two starters for sharing, and when they brought them to our table we were amazed at the size of them, very large but very delicious, we did struggle a bit to eat our mains, that were also very delicious.
When we returned later in the week we had learned from our previous visit and only had one starter to share, and found it a lot easier to consume our mains, which once again were very good, plus on our second visit the service and welcome was a lot better and friendlier.
