“Great fun, well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

A fun taverna in the centre of Gouves. I had the lamb kleftiko which was delicious and I'd very much recommend. The food is traditional and homemade style, not the best you'll ever have but what makes this place great is the family that run it. Warm, friendly and great fun. All in all a great evening...Hospitality (and raki) at it's very best.

“Fantastic Taverna for Breakfasts, Lunch or Evening Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

My Fiancee and I last week had a brilliant holiday in Gouves, one of the many highlights was this little family run Taverna. Very friendly staff who couldnt do enough to help. Food was top quality doing the usual selections of home-made greek food but of the highest quality. Good size portions, and really fresh. Could even see the host making the orange juice from fresh oranges. Would recommend this restaurant to couples and families.

“lovely setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

This place has a lovely setting with plenty of flowers and vine growing around the roof and front, making it a romantic place to eat, we ate here 3 times and every meal was top quality, staff friendly and would even take you back to your hotel after you had eaten

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Great food, great service, great family. Visited a number of times and the welcome, service and food were excellent. This is a lovely family run restaurant and we were so well looked after every time. Copious amounts of raki and great chat after every meal :-)
