If long, loud nights are your thing, head upstairs to this taverna to graze on mezze - tasty morsels served slowly. Share light, zesty zucchini balls studded with feta and mint, or tender calamari fried into crisp golden curls. Mains change daily and top-quality ingredients are allowed to speak for themselves, so the lamb (or sometimes goat) skewers are just that - nothing tricked-up, just honest food. Don’t miss dessert, made in-house to village recipes. Nutty, cinnamony baklava is instantly addictive and galaktoboureko, a light, creamy custard delight encased in honey-syrup-drenched filo pastry, absolutely rocks.
