Galini serves good, wholesome traditional Greek food in a lovely restaurant with great view. Especially the fish is great; ask about what is good at the moment. The owner is very friendly and has a good hand with children. As we were to leave we were offered a small drink with a whisky (apple juice) for our son. The playground... More

If you want to read more about the restaurant itself, read my review of it from last year. This time I'll just write about the food & drink. We drank house wine, served in lovely local copper...

It's two years we visited Galini. This time we were 7 people arriving to Galini. A very friendly 'team' said wellcome and we were service with efficiency by a young dark knowable 'lady' explained the very extensive menu to us. We decided to go for starters which we split among us. As usually we had tzatsiki and bread and wine... More

We have been going to Vassilikos for over ten years now and have always eaten at Galini's Taverna. I can honestly say it has not been the best taverna in vassilikos but over the past three to four years it has improved greatly and now we go at least every other evening to eat there when we are on holiday...

Having eaten here a few times during our stay I feel it's only fair to give them a good review following the excellence shown. Expect people from other European countries to smoke after dinner in the restaurant! Being a non smoker it can be a problem but its par and course. This is the only down side!!!! The seating area...

Loved this taverna. It had a unique atmosphere with all the animals around. Very family oriented. The food was goo too. This was my favourite in Vassilikos. The staff were very pleasant.

Maybe it was because I had read so many good reviews on here that when I went to Galini my expectations were very high. I wasnt that impressed. I had the chicken stifado, and it was just alright, and it came with chips, which was disappointing. I would have rather just had the chicken with onions and skipped the potato... More

Galini is a working farm with a restaurant. It is in a beautiful rural location with wonderful views across the sea. Highly recommend going to see the sunsetting. We had two courses and were absolutely stuffed. Great value for money. The food was good honest fayre. Nothing mindblowing but decent nonetheless.

Ate here twice. Chose here for our meal on our last night. Delicious.The service is great & the staff friendly. There is a great play area & a great atmosphere. I must admit though if it hadn't been recommended I don' think I would have gone past the gate! Just goes to show that you shouldn't judge a book by... More
