Only fresh, organic farm produce is used in the menu and the preparation is done entirely in the farm kitchens. Seasoned with local herbs, they prepare sweets with natural materials such as honey.

The building formerly housed a tailor shop, as the name "Raftis" (tailor) suggests, and was converted into a restaurant a few years ago by Manolis and his wife Ziza. In addition to the kitchen, there is a large room within the building, that is less used as a dining room, but more for art exhibitions of all kinds.
The 10 tables of a different size are well arranged in the yard and so even at well-attended days you will be having a little privacy. The courtyard, the trees and the subtle lighting create a wonderful atmosphere to spend the evening with your partner, friends and family.
