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.

Disappointing experience. If a restaurant gets 5 ‘stars’ you suppose it is fantastic. Well it wasn’t in my opinion. The menu is disappointing( perhaps for families with kids ok.. hamburgers, pizza, kipnuggets, gyros) but we choose some dishes we thought are ‘authentic’Greek. Well.. not really...bad, but rather tasteless and fat. The housewine ( we took the red one) was not good. For me there are so much more taverna’s in the area with better quality!More

Good service but mediocre food, not bad but not great. A bit disappointing after so many great reviews but not bad. Perfect safe play area for the kids which is a huge bonus when dining as a family. Nice setting and good service.

A wonderful evening in a delightful setting. We shared a vegetarian platter and also ordered pork gyros and chicken gyros, with tad local white wine. Service was attentive without being intrusive, we will definitely come again

We drove here on the way back from a trip to Aptera, ok so not really on the way but it wasn't far out of our way. Before dinner we walked to the beach and watched the sunset which is great from Stavros, then went...to the restaurant. We had the chicken souvlaki and the sea bass plus a Greek salad. Both were very tasty and were the best examples we have had of them on this trip so far. Obviously freshly cooked on a open fire for added flavour. Service was excellent, nice location.More

It's not by chance that it's the No. 1 in the area! Very welcoming and hospitable staff (they really know how to show hospitality!), great service and delicious food. As someone who is in the business for many years, I really appreciate their whole positive...attitude! Another advantage is the playground they have for the kids. So, even if you are a couple, a family, or just friends, you will always enjoy your dinner in peace (speaking as a father 😅)More
