“Great location”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Lovely location amongst the canals with a table looking out over the infinity pool and beyond. The food was delicious and quite refreshing to have a Greek after all the Steak and fish on offer in S.A! Service was fantastic and the food was very traditional and tasty with a good selection of wines. Definitely worth a visit if in the area but do book ahead as it gets busy.

“Great setting”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

Fabulous spot right on the canals but food is even better! We had Crayifish and Kleftiko as our mains and both were outstanding. Very friendly informal service from the owner and his staff. Great experience.

“Great Greek food overlooking canals in St Francis Bay”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

We took the 5 o'clock canal cruise from the jetty below the restaurant and were booked here for dinner after on the recommendation of our guest house. We were not disappointed. The waitress was very persuasive with her descriptions of the food and we ordered the crayfish tails for our mains after a bowl of tzatziki that took us back to Crete, and Spanokapita which was delicious (though why three triangles when it was a sharing dish for two). When they crayfish arrived they were enormous. I had specifically asked for now raw onions and my partner that they went easy on the chillies. My plate was garnished with onions and there were far too many chillies. The waitress apologised and took the plates away and returned with the offending items removed. Not ideal, but when we tasted the sweet crayfish and potato wedges all was forgiven. Sublime and though expensive in comparison to some meals, well worth the expense and , much much less than we would pay in England. Light and not too rich baklava to follow, made by the owners wife and an ice cream special we were happy customers.

Great greek food and stunning location on the canal. Peri has a great sense of humour too. Not the cheapest place in the town but quality is paramount. Thanks guys
