Our starters (split peas puree, stuffed wine leaves and fried zucchini balls) and our main dish (grilled red mullets) were very tasty and well prepared. We appreciated the kindness and the wit of the restaurant owner and the quality of service in general. Fruits... More

This is a great restaurant with amazing food. During our visit we went for three or four starters to share and were not disappointed: the portions were very generous and the food was amazing! I would personally recommend the courgette croquettes and the stuffed vine leaves... At the end we were also offered complimentary watermelon. Very refreshing! A really good... More

We have eaten at the Napoleon many times after first being introduced by our very good friend Sonya who owns the Pallas gold shop in the town, since that time we have taken our friends to eat there and all absolutely love it, the staff and owner are all very friendly and always make the time to sit and chat

The restaurant (closed on Sundays) had always an excellent quality food: fresh, regional products and authentic traditional cooking. It's reasonable priced for Greek standards, cheap for most tourists. The service is friendly and fast.
