Overpriced, food very salty don't like criticism when told. The owner is full of theatrical jesters and is over the top, she is never wrong and can not take constructive criticism
when I told her my dish too salty, " My chefs are trained by me and don't make mistakes" I was told with a Theatrical bow and wave of the hands.
my be, but it was still over seasoned.

This is a cut above most of the other restaurants here, with the owner showing her attention to style, detail, quality and sheer friendliness of welcome. We came on a wet and almost cold night when the outdoors was closed, but the view and setting on a sunny day must be top rate. Starters were excellent. I think we ordered wrongly for mains, getting the two biggest steaks ever seen (due to being fed up with the same old routine in all of the other restaurants) - but whilst they appeared great at first, they didn't have anything like the quality you'd get with something like a florentine steak in Italy. Other diners mainly had fish, all of which looked very good indeed. So it's five stars for the sheer quality of the restaurant, for the welcome and service, and for the pleasure of dining here.

This "taverna" is set on the road down to Lourdata beach.
Well presented up-market taverna with a good selection of food on the menu BUT the prices are steep - decided to leave and find somewhere less expensive with just as good food.

Excellent food, good service and very friendly staff. I enjoyed the atmosphere, they even gave us blankets, as we were sitting outside. The grilled liver was my favourite
