Doesn't it feel great to be back. After a few hectic months, I finally have both time (and access to internet) to finally post again. The template for this review has been sitting in my drafts folder for two months, just waiting to be written.
What an amazing place this restaurant is though, and certainly lives up to its hype. It wasn't too hard to get a reservation a day in advance for a quiet Tuesday night (though I wouldn't recommend it seeing how busy it actually ended up being). Warm and cosy, the emphasis here is definitely on being family oriented, both in the menu and the atmosphere of the restaurant. That of course meant pretty terrible lighting for photos, but you get the picture.
The centerpiece of the meal though was, of course, the meat. We ordered the Arni sto fourno, slow roasted shoulder of lamb, garlic, oregano, accompanied by a serve of Kalamboki (sweet corn, spiced butter, smoked almonds, kefalograviera).

I must admit though, I preferred the second dessert a lot more.
