Really liked this restaurant. Lovely big portions of food, complimentary hot pitta bread and dips whilst waiting and an after dinner "shot", raki for the men, malibu and pineapple for the ladies afterwards. Would definitely seek this restaurant out if I go back to Gouves.

This family run restaurant is an institution in the area and a popular spot with locals. Everything we had was cooked in a casserole (it was a stormy evening) and all was incredible, melt in the mouth stuff. At the end there was a table full of free ice cream/puddings. 3 courses all for €50.

Here we was only one time, the last day. Ordered chef sallad, witch was very good! Super lokal cafe and good service. The tzatziki and the other, red very good dressing will surprise you! Try it and you're not going to regret.

Some of the menu offers a change from the usual greek food, really must recomend the barbecued rack of ribs--YUMMY. Must tell all that the flat-bread that comes with the dips at the start of the meals is the VERY BESY WE HAVE EVER TASTED
