This is a lovely Greek taverna,overlooking the sea with a great staff. However the food was a disappointment,maybe we made the wrong choice because other customers were saying to the waiter how nice their meals were.

I really wish them well as besides great food they have a very friendly approach and value every customer. I would say they represent why one comes to... More
