Lonely Planet review
Come to the upper gallery of this typical old-house restaurant at lunchtime in season, and you can expect a good buffet of baked chicken or lamb, fresh hummus and local salads. The measure of the chef to our mind, however, was the ability to rustle up something expert on a dark night in winter and the willingness of the aging patrons to give us an out-of-hours welcome. The restaurant is opposite the Archaeological Park.
