When cruising in the Ionian. This restaurant was always such a pleasure. They sold the best burgers you can imagine. They don't anymore. Just the same Greek menu served by everyone else. taverna menu sold everywhere else.

Onion pie was made with ready prepared (frozen) fillo which is unacceptable for the place and the price.greek salad were bad too,white colored tomatoes ,tinny slice of feta and a high price for a salad you can find at any average taberna. We order gemista (that never arrived and they charged them) and a beef cooked in orange sauce which was on.we will never come back and this is definitely not a recommended place for anyone.

Dear customer,
Our onion pie is a dish with a thirty-year- old history and people come again and again from all over Europe to taste it. Its original recipe is with baklava filo because it makes it very crispy and not because it is cheaper or more easy to prepare. The price of the dish (9euros) is because of its rich ingredients (4 different types of cheese, fresh cream, bacon) and it is quite justfiable given its high quality ingredients and the size of the portion.
You also mention the fact that you were charged a portion of stuffed vegetables that never arrived. We are really sorry for this mistake, but I think that it would be more fair from your part to also mention that the sum was immediately detracted from your bill once you pointed out the mistake and sincere apologies were provided.
