I first reviewed this astonishingly good tavern last September and we made a point of re-visiting it for lunch this year. So glad we did. The food is outstanding and the place is so atmospheric - in a little 17th century 'square' down a side street from the centre of Gavalachori. I simply couldn't fault it, yet again. We visited...

Beautiful and unusual setting with some modern touches. Food very good. Soon filled up by 830 (mid sept). Well worth a visit. And have a look at the museum just down the street from the restaurant.

Set out on a narrow street, it was fun to watch the locals pass by with their shopping and to see the food cooked on the barbecue just across from us. Very good food and a couple of minutes stroll from Nico's on the village square.

This is a fairly small place with a beautiful hidden courtyard in the back. The food is delicious, but what makes it such a great place is the lovely people who work there. They were all fantastic, friendly and fun. It was easily our favourite taverna in Gavalochori.

We were the first to arrive at 7pm restaurant quickly filled. The service was a little slow but probably because so many tables arrived at once. Our food experience was mixed - the swordfish was an enormous portion and very tasty; the lamb and pork chops were ok and the pastitsio was average. More fun was had watching the meats... More
