“Fantastic! Dont miss out!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

This is a beautiful traditional family owned taverna situation on the top of the hills.
During our holiday in Argassi we walked passed a poster pinned up to a lamppost advertising this place daily and it is just unfortunate for us that we only decided to pay it a visit on our final evening! As you can imagine there are so many restuarants to visit right on your door step and with this place not being visible possibly puts you off-but please dont let it! It is absolutely amazing!
You just phone them on the number provided and they will come and collect you from your hotel on the date and time agreed. Ok so you get picked up in a little rickety van (but that made it all the more traditional in our eyes) the driver is the son-a young lad just out of university helping with the family business before going off to complete his service! Extremelly polite and very friendly he takes you through the town and up into the mountains until you reach the taverna!
OMG what an amazing view! You get the most amazing outlook across the whole area! Loads of great photo opportunities!
grandma and mum do the cooking with a little help from dad when needed and dads on the bar and serving along with his son.
The food is traditional Greek with items such as Kleftiko (my fav), souvlaki, stifado and moussaka! They make their own wine which is lovely and the prices are great! They also have a couple of Greek nights on during the week which we were saddened to have missed!
After our lovely meal we went and sat outside (although inside you still get the views due to full glass opening windows) and soaked up the views with plenty of drinks.
The dad came and sat with us for a bit and had a great chat and when you are ready to leave (no matter what time) the sons brings you back!

Please do not miss out on this place just because you cannot see it and others are on your doorstep! If you want traditional food from an amazing family you must pay this place a visit :)

“Best Views on the Island”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

I have visited this bar several times over the years, it has excellent views over the coast, a brilliant greek night and free transport up from Argassi, one of the best places to watch the sunset from, The staff are very friendly and food of excellent quality, seating inside or outside on the patio.
Well worth a walk up the hill for or the free transport for your evening meal

“Target Bar Taverna”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

An amazing experience while you are in Argassi is to go up into the mountains to the Target Bar Taverna!
You get a view that is priceless, very tasty and fresh food and a warm care of the wonderful family Kotsonis.
You will be picked up and left by minibus.
Every Tuesday and Saturday they have a Greek evening with dancing, food, wine for only 15 eu.
The Greek evenings are incredibly nice to be at. Do not miss these.
Target Bar is owned by the family Kotsonis who do everything to make your evening as pleasant as possible, whether it is Greek or a "normal" evening.
I've been there for 4 years and it is just as amazing every time.
Recommended !!

“Yamas Target Bar”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Target Bar in Argassi is simply one of the best restaurant/bars to experience what is great about Greek dining and dancing. This family-run bar is very welcoming and will collect you from your hotel and return you when you decide that you can dance no more. The views from Target Bar are amazing, the sunsets are breathtaking - don't forget to take your camera with you. Greek Dancing nights are Tuesday and Saturday and at 15 euros per person proves fantastic value - you get a Tzatziki and fresh bread, a Greek salad followed by Souviaki with chips and as much wine as you can drink. A great place for a wedding reception or any party of your choice. You will not find a better place than Target Bar with Nikos, Dennis snr and Dennis jnr and Maria.Can't wait to return next year.
