Different recipes and unique specialties. The cook’s motto: "Creativity based on tradition". Cooking all dishes with premium quality olive oil only is the rule of thumb; the tavern belongs to the "Eleogefsíes" network of taverns and restaurants that use olive oil only and was one of the price winners of the network’s quality contest.

Selected wines made with the help of a specialist.
