We went there for a late breakfast which turned into a little lunch as we chose grilled vegetables, tsatsiki and saganaki special. Tsatsiki had garlic in it which is missing most of the time at other restaurants. Saganaki special contains potatos, ham, pepper, cheese, courgette and creamy sauce. It was delicious! Grilled vegetables were aubergine, pepper and courgette. Staff was... More

Votsalo is slightly different from the other Myrtos restaurants in that often it applies a slightly modern touch to the traditional Greek food it produces. We eat there at least a couple of times every year, have done for sixteen years now and never been disappointed in ant way. My next rip there will be in September to remiond my... More

I got there with my girlfriend and we order a couple of different plates to have a variety... All of them were delicious!!! I asked them how, and they told me their secret... They cook in the restaurant as they cook at home!!! With the same passion and quality... Highly recommended! I would come back again!

We visited Votsalo on a weekday at 9.30 pm (a common time to have dinner in Greece) but at that time all the specials (the best dishes) were sold out... A bit of a disappointment. The souvlaki was nothing special and the stuffed tomatoes where a bit boring (three of them, all with the same filling). Staff was friendly though.

The food was very tasty and there was a lot of it, the veg was stuffed with a tasty tomato rice with herbs. Service was impeccable and as I was on my own very... More

With just one night in Mirtos , we went to this restaurant as suggested by TA . My bream was the size of a sardine, wife's vegetables were in edible. The fried potatoes a soggy joke. The white wine was undrinkable the red disgusting.

We had a lovely meze meal here, after a day of driving through the mountains and walking through a beautiful gorge. Cold Fix, dakos, tzaziki and salad were all thoroughly enjoyable and with the tavern right on the beach front, you couldn't ask for a better location. Mitros is a lovely seaside village with a big beach, worth a visit.
