“The very best”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We are visiting the Ponderosa yet again. And we still find that it is the best. The staff are superb, and you feel that you are with true friends. The chef's are amazing, and the food is always piping hot. Can't wait to get back there in Aug/Sept.

“People keep going back”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

This taverna is on the main street right of the cross roads opposite Spikeys bar. Mikey produces fantastic authentic greek food at very reasonable prices. The taverna is family run and the service is superb. I would strongly recomend booking in advance as a lot of customers eat there every night and have pre booked tables.

“What a change from last year!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We ate here loads last year and didn't have a bad meal so it was first on our list to eat this year. Well it could not have been more different! We ordered our favourite meal from last year, steak in brandy and cream sauce and it was awful. The steak was tough and the sauce horrible. Our daughter had chicken that was so dry that she ate hardly any so the local stray cats had it! The service was bad and when we asked for the bill it was just shoved on the table. In every other restaurant we ate in we were given at least one complimentary item but here we were given nothing at all. We did not go back.

“back again”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Have been visited this taverna for many years never been disapointed, the only thing that we did not like is the reservation of tables. We think that a time should be for reservation, what is the point of having the best tables not used for most part of the night!

“Mmmmmm”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

They forgot our order and the food took an age to get to us. Got a warm free beer for the error. Food not really anything special.
