We chose Palati for its high TripAdvisor rating. Our disappointment matched the expectations.

Starters were mediocre. Mains were simply bad - mussaka was way below where good mussaka go, souvlaki was dry and stuffed calamari was stuffed with much air, a piece of pepper and a small piece of cheese (it came with tasteless steamed vegetables (cold).
House wine was a shame.
We asked for plain water and got mineral (paid). Bread was billed. No Greek customary pre or post meal frills.
Waiter - unsmiling.
Summary - the most disappointing meal we had in Greece, and the most expensive one.

It seems that success has gone to their heads.

Sorry owners, had this been otherwise, I would have given you a truly good one.
