Very good food in sensible quantities. Very nice, beautifully cooked fish dishes. Nice wine and good raki! The other highlight was the provision of cushions to go on the rope/rush bases to the chairs which made sitting to eat here far nicer than the other beachfront tavernas in this area!!!

We have been customers here since 1995, and the place has had its ups and downs. At one time they had the best tzatziki and the best country sausages in Kalyves. Their fried squash and mushrooms are still great but we were so disappointed this year by their pork souvlaki and especially their lamb chops. I know that païdhákia are not supposed to be chops but can have both more bones and more fat - but if they are all bones and fat and very little meat, I am allowed to be disappointed.
The place is still beautiful next to the sea and we had a beautiful sunset.

Been here lots of times.Always excellent quality and value especially the fish at this family run traditional taverna.The service is always good and the owners and staff are extremely friendly.It does help if you have and appreciate dry humour!!The setting is idyllic by the edge of the beach and close to the harbour.A most enjoyable evening as always.
