Ouzeri Sholarheion (Kouklis): Home Made Meze!
This place is really good and affordable. Super-friendly staff (owners). The meze dishes are presented to you by the table and you can choose your favorites (out of eighteen) and drinks (wine, beer, ouzo) and mineral water and pay a fixed prize of 12 € per person for the whole meal. The amount of dishes you can choose is regulated to the party eating. We were two and could thus choose five dishes to share + bread + drink + water + dessert. We chose taramosalata, tzatziki, fried eggplant, greek salad, gigant beans in tomato and dill sauce. Every dish was good.
