“Get what you pay for”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Meal was cheap but unimaginative and bland. We ate here several years ago and it has certainly gone downhill...

“ok food if you dont mind seeing rats while your eating”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We have been to Lourdas several times and love it but had never come across this restaurant before. Menu outside looked ok so we thought we would try it. On entering it looked really nice. we were met by a nice lady who showed us to a table.Within 2 minutes we were served which was good .All went down hill after that. We were plagued by mosquitos and ants crawling on the table and plates. As we had already ordered our mains which thankfully did not take long we decided to grin and bear it. In the meantime we spotted a rat climbing a tree above us we were horrified to see this and tried to notify staff but then were told from repeat customers that the rats were always there!!!!!!! There was another couple who was as unhappy as we were as there was another rat in the bushes next to there table. We did not finish our meal and left quite promptly and politely

“Fabulous Home-cooked food in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Trifilli is set in a beautiful courtyard, surrounded by greenery. We had wonderful moussaka and souvlaki, which was very reasonably priced, and enjoyed the atmosphere. Take your bug spray, it was the only place we got bitten whilst in Lourdas

Staying in Lourdas first 2 weeks in July and this was the nearest taverna to our villa and on doing a little research here thought we'd struck lucky. How wrong we were. Two of four of us arrived ahead of the others and asked for a table for four - we're placed at a previously used, unwiped table and left to fester for almost 15 minutes before being asked if we would like a drink or the table being wiped clean and a paper cloth laid.
On arrival of the others, an eventual order of drinks and a look at the menu the order was taken and from there, after an unpromising start, things went downhill.
The food was unspeakable: My wife and I both had baked fish with vegetables which comprised an overlooked mass of grey matter and veggies stewed to death and beyond the former not having seen the sea in a long while. Both my sons, aged 19 and 22 with voracious appetites left virtually all their food and we left, unsurprisingly, without delay. Yes, it was cheap but that is a relative term, as if you don't eat what is served, if becomes expensive on a per mouthful basis. If you can put up with the unctuous maitresse d' you will enjoy a much better meal at the Olive Lounge.
