We stopped here for lunch and it did not disappoint. I had the “village salad” (just like a Greek salad, and the stuffed peppers which were LOVELY. Really yummy food and it was super cheap. It’s also really nice if you sit outside. Definitely recommend!

We stoped here for an afternoon snack and we find the best place to eat rice balls and drink good and strong raki. Very friendly staff.
