We ate here on our first night and we happened to stumble across it after not finding anything else we liked the look of in Hersonissos. Since then, it is still the best place we're eaten in the town. The food is authentic Greek food and is simply delicious! The staff are lovely and friendly. And prices are reasonable too.... More
