Good food served in a lovely setting in a walled garden. We were staying in the village so ate there several times. Highly recommended.

Alekos taverna is well hidden but worth the trip. We sat in the cute courtyard next to orange and lemon trees and hat lamb chops and stuffed meat ball. Both were prepared excellently. Prices were fair too. Highly recommended!

Excellent swordfish and meatballs + first place in 10 days with tasty olive oil. Absolutely worth a visit. A small drawback that dishes don't come with any vegetables, a small salad would be more than welcome.
