I have been at this restaurant twice before. Both times it was excellent. (I may even have written a review on Tripadvisor earlier?) But the pandemic meant a big break in tourism and restaurants closed. Would they still be as good as before? - They...were! The seafood was very good and fresh, and the ordinary table wine was just right. We were a group of 12 people, had booked before. Would they manage this? If possible, they were even better in their service now. All friendly and speedy, a nice little joke in between. Everybody in our little group felt we had chosen the right place. Thank you!More

This restaurant is highly rated everywhere and always seemed to be busy with a wait for a table if you don’t get there earlier enough.The harbour setting is mesmerising especially if you manage to capture the sunset.We ordered a selection of Greek meze dishes which...were all very tasty and well cooked.It’s not the best restaurant in the harbour but it’s worth a visit for the experience.More

Visited this restaurant. The service was appalling. Very rude indeed. Was asked to move tables twice to make room for a larger group of diners. In the end they squeezed me in very tightly between some very loud Germans to the point I could hardly...move my elbows to eat my mean properly. It was so bad an experience I stormed out after throwing my money down on the table and had my dessert at another taverna close by. Never ever again will I visit this establishment - a truly awful experience. One of the worst dining experiences ever. Had better service at a truck tuck shop off the A30 in the UK.More

We really enjoyed eating here. We had a lot of different small dishes and they were all so tasty. They got nice vegetarian, meat and fish dishes. Also, the ouzo and white housewine are delicious.

I usually want to eat the whole menu in Greece. Luckily the Greek invented a thing for it, mezes! They are small dishes comparable to tapas. Try the anchovies octopus but defenitly also some of the vegitarian or meat dishes. Everything is fantastic and tastes...great. Sadly there are not that many people on the island at the moment and tourism isnt really booming. So not all tables were full. But we were treated like guest should be completely conform the greek Xenia(hospitality). Zeus would be proud!More

This is one of the best places I have ever been to. The view is to the city on one side and the sea on the other side is mesmerising. The fishers park their small boats next to you. The food is an amazing and...very wide variety. The service is great, very friendly people and they are nice with kids. We have been to this place almost half of the time we were in Lesbos. The owner uses some of her profit to help refugees in Lesbos.More

Ha ha don’t think so - it is owned by a Greek local family - one of the younger daughters served us who had lived a few years in Australia but she was lovely :)
