Definitely the best way to eat out in Greece is in company. Order a range of appetizers to share to fully appreciate the diversity of the cuisine and then if you want anything individual as a main course you can do so.

Here at Poseidon my company for the main Sunday dinner, during Euromeet2007, numbered eighty-odd and boy did the restaurant do us proud!

Obviously eating as a large group I can't really comment on what the norm is for the place but everything was great. Eating outside in the balmy early June heat was a pleasure. The service was outstanding, food just kept flowing as did the beers and wine. Obviously we created our own ambience but I can imagine that even when a bit quieter this would be a pleasant place to eat.

Favorite Dish: We were on a set-menu but absolutely nothing wrong with that. Appetizers, of which there seemed a never-ending array, included the usual Feta salad, mixed salads and the local bean speciality, along with copious quantities of delicous bread. For main course I had opted for the swordfish which came as a huge freshly-grilled steak with home-made chips and yet more salad. I think there was also something for pudding but Carlos and I opted for more beer instead!

Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Just off the main square, beside the bus station.
Price: US$11-20
