“Family values-great determination and courtesy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We visited here twice in July and it became apparently obvious how hard this family are working together, determined to make their business venture a success. We spoke to Marios at length on each occasion and you can't fault his passion and drive to make this venture work.
The menu varies each day according to the freshest ingredients available. The portions of really good food are large and wholesome. The local wine was chilled perfectly and was fantastic-Greece has come a long way since the days of Retsina, thankfully.
Good luck for the future.

“A Great for Veggies”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

We were staying just up the road at the Alykes Garden Village, and a few of the residents had mentioned how good this place was, and they weren't wrong

Being vegetarians, we aren't that easy to please with the normal taverna menu, so I simply asked if they could make me a dish, telling them my preferences ... and they prepared me a mini-feast

Absolutely superb

Great food, immaculate, friendly service ... and at a cost that was half what it deserved to be

Great wee restaurant ... we loved it

“Attractive and friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

A lovely restaurant in pretty surroundings with very friendly and helpful staff. It seemed more 'Greek' than a lot of other places to eat. Lovely food would highly recommend it.

“Feta cheese, tender lamb, rich honey and fragrant oregano”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

The Pine Cone restaurant is ideally located a short distance away from the main resort and therefore has the added advantage of a relaxed, tranquil ambience. The servers embrace the tranquil setting and atmosphere, all are politely spoken, friendly, helpful and knowledgable of the surrounding area and the islands culture and attractions. They are all dressed very smartly and appear to really enjoy their work.
The menu offers many Greek dishes prepared with local delicious ingredients such as creamy feta cheese, tender lamb, rich honey and fragrant oregano all enhancing the flavoursome cuisine and the countryside setting.
The service is perfect with each course being served in a timely manner (not to short or too long), giving enough time to savour the atmosphere, relax and enjoy the ambience. The food is excellent in every way, freshness, presentation, taste and amount as a result I frequented the pine cone during my stay in Alykes and endeavour to return on my next trip.
