Long queue moved rapidly - great value for money, justifiably popular, impossible to book a table, just turn up and queue. We waited about 15 minutes for a table, then enjoyed very fast service and good basic food in large quantities. Good value for money.

Reviewed last year, back again this year. Had the turbot for two again- it is beautiful. Cooked perfectly. Kids loved their fish too. Homemade deserts were a treat. The almond tart with a "bika" was the perfect finish. Friendly staff, did not feel rushed even...More

Response from Monia-IT-NL | Reviewed this property |
as far as I can remember there are no steps to access this restaurant, it's all on one floor. However it's filled with tables and little space to move around, so I would recommend to go when it's not very busy
