After looking at several restaurants we decided on Agora. The food was fantastic and lovely local Greek wine. Very reasonably priced for the large portions. Only suggestion we would make is that they could do with another person to serve food or take payments.

I think it depends upon the disability. Doors seem very narrow as is the place. But it no stairs. Everything is very tight, especially on weekends.
