“Expensive food, sloppy service, poorly cooked.”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

The Taverna Dolphin relies on a charming hawker who helped us make up our minds as to which of the many harbour-side restaurants we should chose. The place was busy and well located.
As the saying goes "you pays your money and takes your choice". I doubt many visit twice. The menu was fairly typical for a tourist spot - the menu was full of dishes to suit tourists that prefer their own cuisine to the local Greek fare.
We struggled to get service, the wine was worse than usual and none of us finished our meals. Over priced food and not nearly as good as many of the other nearby places.

“Good food!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

I ate there gyros. 8 euros. Very good food, at the shore of the harbor. Beautiful view.
What I didn't like, and I observed this in almost every restaurant, is that they bring you bread without asking if you want it and then they charge you.

“Not very good ”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

We were gently invited and welcomed but food was not very tasty. Oily (of course, we're in Greece) beyond any other place we had tried. No vegetables next to the dishes, while other places do provide some. Finally portions were not huge. 3 of us 4 were still hungry after eating here.
