“Pretentious & overpriced”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We had very high expecations mainly due to great reviews on trip advisor and because we had so many lovely meals on the islands in various restaurants/tavernas. we tried this place towards the end of our trip thinking almost that you can't go wrong with the food/service on this beautiful island. sadly we were wrong. We were the first guests in the restaurant and the male waiter was very odd to say the least. he wasnt rude or anything like that but he was missing the usual Greek hospitality and came across like he didnt really care. anyway, we orderred a starter and two mains. the started was nice but for what it costs it was small. however it tasted ok - we had better octopus though in several different places. good thing about it was the presentation. then our main courses arrived. both tepid.. it is my fault i didnt complain at the time but i think we were too tired and too hungry at this point. I dont understand why our food arrived warm verging on cold,especially that by that point we were still the only customers there,people only just started to arriving after we were served. anyway, i orderred sea food kebab - small plate on a pita bread,mixed seafood but sadly served almost cold,cant remember what it cost by i think around £15 which i thought it was far too much for what it was. my partner had fish souvlaki, again, warm,almost cold. again,small plate for around £15 . we ate it with disappointment. after our meal was served and people started arriving, we were literrally forgotten. we wanted some more drinks, desert etc but despite waiting for 50 minutes and despite the waiter walking past our table several times,we couldnt get his attention and noone was bothered to ask if we wanted anything else. the blond lady and her mum (i am guessing here) who both appeared shortly after we arrived- they seemed to be the owners i think- they were greeting and making conversations with almost every table (some people they knew well it seemed) but we were invisible! i have never felt this way. was it becasue it was just two of us??i dont know but we felt very uncomfortable and after one hour wait for attention we asked for a bill. not once,not twice 3 times. first 2 times we were hardly acknowledge and nothing happened (again noone asked if we wanted anything else) than for the 3 rd tme, the waiter who served us initially, said very obruptly -OK OK. this was it. the bill eventually arrived, we paid , we left - unnoticed.. If you see my other revious from the island, you will see that we are easily pleased, but this was by far the worst experience. no character, no personality, food below average. the only two good things about this place is the ambience- beautiful garden setting and food presentation. thats it. and it lacks the main ingredience- GREEK HOSPITALITY and Character.. Sorry Anna (whoever you are as we didnt get to meet you), you have let us down. i would say dear travellers , dont bother unless you want overpriced,pretenious place full of snobs.

This taverna was recommended by other guests at our hotel. My friend and I had a lovey meal and the service was excellent. I am vegetarian and had a wonderful risotto with vegetables, nuts and apricots..
