There were 21 courses to the Meze and we enjoyed each and every one! The pork and lamb were simply amazing! The staff were very engaging and made our... More

Just before the main Coral bay strip this place is full of atmosphere, its feels like a real taverna should do, Phidias and his Son Yiannis make you very welcome and make sure that your every need is catered for, the waiters too are very efficient. We have eaten here numerous times now and will continue to return as it... More

I visited with my family on Friday night. There was entertainment on which was amusing. Meze was typical, large amounts and was more than adequate. That's about it, there are better places and worse places to eat. There is a lot of competition. I am glad I tried it but probably wouldn't return.
