“Masa: exaggerated quantities”
Review of Masa..la

Masa..la
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 June 2016

Not too long ago this restaurant was called 'Pythostasi' (with an entry in Tripadvisor). Now the new owners are calling it 'Masa..la' (in between the two dots on the signboard is a musical note). 'Masa' in Greek means a meal with exaggerated quantities, und this is supposed to make you sing, thus the musical '..la' in the end. Rather funny and unique.

There is only indoor seating, but the interior is nicely done in a greyish white, not overly decorated and with flagstones on the floor. What I wouldn't need for dinner is this big TV screen, which the group of Greek men, who looked like being sent from somewere else to do a job here, were watching most of the time.

The food is classical Greek and there are also cooked dishes like Pastitsio, Briam, Fakes. We were told that they had fresh anchovies, which were not on the menu card, and that is what I went for. Anchovies (Gavros in Greek) come always fried, contrary to the Sardines (Sardelles in Greek), which always come grilled. My wife asked for a pork chop, which turned out to be on the rather tough and dry side. We also tried 'Briam' (a kind of Greek ratatouille) and a Marouli (lettuce salad, which had sunflower oil, not the more expensive olive-oil on it). Quite good were their open white and red house wine. Quantities were really very big and we couldn't finish all.

So this looks like a place for hard-working, hungry labourers, who want to watch TV during dinner. Tourists will more enjoy the not too far from here tavern 'Klimataria'.
