Was looking for a place to eat, found this pearl of a restaurant. Perfect food and the most pleasant waiter ever met. Not the last time we will come here.

Very good restaurant for real Cretan home cooking. It was run by the father but now his son has taking over but the mother still cooks. It is much cheaper than the other restaurants in the neighborhood and it is a joy to eat there.

Had a great lunch here, good value considering the old town location and really nice staff. Lamb with yogurt was great, very tasty. Pizza was good the kids, far better than expected. Would definitely visit again if I'm in town.
