The outdoor sitting was excellent, the place was quiet, the pork chops were fvery well cooked and the waiters, though very busy, were polite and eager to serve. A nice restaurant in beautiful Platres.

We were a group of 11 people and the waiter refused to give us a table, even though the restaurant was empty. Unacceptable.

We wanted to know something about local kitchen. The food was very varied, delicious and the red wine had recharged the batteries.

We had lunch here. The owners are very friendly and went out of there way to try to find something vegetarian. They prepared a special pasta and of course a Greek salad. My partner said that the fish was fresh, though lacking seasoning.
