Very efficient and friendly waiters, especially Joseph who was outstanding. Food very fresh and tasty. A wee bit noisy if you are seated on the outside near the road, but moving inside would be no problem.

We eat two times at the Old River and enjoyed it both very much. The first time we made our choice from the menu, the second time we let Joseph choose us some mezes. We have to say the mussel saganaki was our favorite!! Joseph and the other guys make you feel very welcome. They are used to Dutch customers... More

The staff here are really friendly and the owner really funny. The food is excellent and great place for a nice cold mythos beer following a day on the beach.
