Wonderful Greek food, especially the Greek platter was tasty and full of nice different flavours. Service was great and so was the place. No noisy traffic as in many other places for example in Platanias.

Food is excellent and the waiter plays along with silly tourists. Corrects your Greek prononcuation and tells you the Norwegians were better. 😀

The place has a nice athmosphere in the evening. Delicious Sea bream and Lamp souvlaki. Good local white wine.

I really do not understand why this place have so many good reviews. We ordered pepperoni pizza and the so called pepperoni did not look like pepperoni at all. I also suspect that the pizza dough was semi-manufactured - not good. I would NOT recommend...More

Nice outdoor restaurant in quiet area. Good food except pizza, but we didn’t pay for that. Large portions. Very good service.

We stayed at the far end of Malame and it took us 40 minutes to walk there and a 10 euro taxi back . Looking at the map it looks like you are at least half that distance . Well worth the effort just for the fried prawns... More
