Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After reading all the great reviews I couldn't wait to eat here. Sadly, it has been taken over and the food is now diabolical. The sign outside promising authentic Greek cuisine is fraudulent. In reality the 'restaurant' offers a plethora of poorly cooked junk food....I had a mushroom burger. This was tinned mushrooms, cabbage and mayonnaise served in a soggy, cheap and non toasted roll. Avoid. It's the only place in the local area where I have not had an excellent meal.More

Gone the days of the beautiful old taverna, gone with it all the old fig trees with their cool and refreshing shade, the beautiful flowers, the atmosphere. Instead blaring loud music, nondescript international food instead of the real Greek cuisine Manolis, the old owner, provided....Not worth a visit, forget itMore

Only had chance to have lunch here after visiting the hot springs and whilst waiting for the local bus. It was relaxed and friendly with mainly Greek customers. A tourist asked to book a table for that evening and was patiently told there was really...no need! I’m not a cat person, but theirs were cute. We had cheese pies, Greek salad, tzatziki, bread and beers. All delicious and we love a beer in a frozen glass on a hot day. Really miffed that we forgot to take some baklava away with us, especially as we didn’t come across it in any other taverna or bakery we visited. We’d definitely go back for an evening meal next time.More

We ate at this restaurant on a Monday evening and were very disappointed by the very limited menu available on the night. Considerably less than half the options on the printed menu were actually available. What we actually had was nice, especially the Beef in...the Oven which was melt in your mouth delicious. The setting was nice and quiet.More

Great taverna in a lovely setting. watch the sun go down over eftalou whilst being served by friendly staff serving great food. We went here a couple of times this holiday and wasn't disappointed,a little distance away from Molyvos so reasonably quiet.

Food was amazing, best we have had in this island. Fresh fish was something that you should definitely try in here! We ate here several times because not only the food but the service made the visit always pleasant. The atmosphere and the peaceful music...was the crerry on top.More

We had lunch here when we visted the hot spring at Eftalou. I had grilled sardines, these were cooked ok, though no crispy skin! My wife had a chivken kebab (Souvlaki) this was dry and tastless. The wine was nice and the service was ok....Just very disappointed about the food. There are not many restaurants to choose from in Eftalou., so its Hobson's choice!More

The food in this taverna was good and service fine also. Terrace next to the beach had a nice view. There were many cats at the restaurant terrace thou and they were a bit disturbing.

Having tried almost all the restaurants in the area of Molivos and Eftalou, this is my favorite. Food is so fresh and high-quality, prepared traditionally. Very tasty and generous portions. No problem in finding vegetarian options. Service is friendly and efficient and the owners are...very nice. Prices are fair and lower than you find in Molivos. All that and a beautiful flowery patio to relish the view of the sea makes this the authentic, family-run taverna that I keep coming back to.More

One of the best restaurants tavern in the area. Excellent choice for families with children. All dishes we tried were above average and service was fine. Can be combined with a visit to nearby attractions

I Eftalou is a lovely Greek fish tavern. The fish here is fresh and perfectly prepared. The vegetable dishes are authentic and wonderful. Try the octopus in wine sauce for a great treat.

This is a lovely seaside restaurant and the food is always good and fresh and the service friendly without being over the top. Both the fish and the more traditional cooked dished are consistently delicious.
