“Our favourite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2012

Having spent a holiday in Pefkos in 2011, we already new this retauarant and couldn't wait to return. We were welcomed with open arms and given the red carpet treatment. The food here is delicious. If you like fish, don't miss the swordfish, the sea bream or the sea bass - all delicious. Aubergine saganaki is a good choice for starter. Mama's lamb - divine. Excellent service. Have a look in the bakery below the restaurant - you won't be able to resist! Great views from the restauarnt - don't miss it - you won't be disappointed!

“Differently good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

Wandered up the hill for a night at the Tsambikos. This was different from all our other dining experiences in Pefkos. Quieter than many restaurants maybe because it's up the hill and a little more expensive than some.

Tzatziki good as to be expected. Partner had Kleftiko which was wrapped in filo pastry and tasted great, I went for the Moussaka which wasn't at all greasy and was lovely. Traditional with a twist.

Would recommend the walk for this. They also give you a selection of breads with some olive tapenade and sweet pepper butter which was good.

“Lovely bakery”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2012

I found the food average but a nice location away from the main road . The staff seemed nice enough but no atmosphere .
The cakes in the bakery where delicious and you can sit and have a coffee outside .

“nice food up a big hill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2012

It's quite a walk up the hill to the Tsambikos but well worth it.
The menu whilst still very greek is different from the normal greek menus which all tend to be the same. The food is excellent and I really enjoyed it, my husband was a little disappointed that the Kleftico, which he loves, was in pastry. But I imagine some people might like that.
Good value for money and very good service even on a very busy night. Well worth the walk.

“Authentic Greek taverna with great views over Pefkos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012 via mobile

Our 3rd year in Pefkos but 1st time at Tsambikos this year as we finally realised this is not just a bakery. We enjoyed the attentive service, great food including free tapenade and bread to start, and free shots at the end, thank you. The food is the best we have had in Greece, went back 2 more times as well, we recommend Stifado, Mamas lamb, chicken kebabs, and moussaka.The view over Pefkos and bay is stunning, and the owners treated us like old friends especialy when we went back the 2nd and 3rd nights. This taverna was the highlight of our holiday this year and we wish we had found it the last 2 years.
