We went there twice. They make cheap gyros (3-4 euros) with a lot to eat. You can eat them seated in the shade

We had a lovely meal at Domenico's taverna, including Pastitsio, moussaka and meatballs in tomato sauce all freshly cooked by Eva and presented to us by Smoothy George, the owner, who is always happy to chat to diners and entertain them.
