“An overlooked gem in Pefkos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

Mary & Gina's was very quiet when we were in Pekos but we decided to give it ago because Dama Dama was fully booked. What a lucky break - the staff were friendly and attentive. The food was fabulous - we ate Tuna steak in a white wine sauce and Swordfish steak. Both were well cooked with plenty of grilled vegetables and potatoes. Veg seems to be rare in Pefkos! We went back again on our last night and decided to try the 2 course menu for €8.90pp. We were expecting smaller portions because of the price, but were given two good sized portions of Tzatziki & Humous accompanied by two large salad's and main dishes the same size as on the previous night. This time was had Greek meatballs - that were to die for - really flavoursome and several of them. My husband had a Greek risotto type dish which was really tasty. I hope to visit Pefkos again and will definitely be going back to Mary and Gina's

“very poor!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013 via mobile

We have been to pefkos a few times now and since we love fish promised ourselves to definately try mary and gina.
.sorely let down. food substandard all round.
two starters one with prawns..all fancy looking, but mediocre and salty. no finger bowl either which i think is a basic if you are having prawns.
couldnt provide fresh potatoes but fresh chips!. we both opted for pasta with seafood. I hate to bites and decided I would go hungry n didnt care for the grit.
service slow staff slow and very disinterested. Couldnt wait to leave and wont go back

“Mixed feelings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

On our first visit we were impressed by service, food and surroundings, but have to say we agree with the comments about rushed service, not what we expect in Greece! The place wasn't busy but food was presented faster than we could eat it, not a pleasant experience so we didn't return.

“Set menus are fantastic value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013 via mobile

We ate off the set menu for €8.90/9.90 and thought it was great value. You get a salad, tatziki or houmous and main, of which there were several choices along with a glass of wine. The portion sizes are huge and our hungry party of three couldnt finish it. Of the cheaper set menu restaurants this was most definitely the nicest in terms of atmosphere, quality and service.
