staff very friendly and great food but the wait was far too long at 45 mins when only a handful of tables occupied. There was no atmosphere or music. It was like eating in a big outdoor car port had to trek across the grass to the entrance. Tables all in lines and no plants or greenery to soften the... More

Ate here 8 years ago and were not disappointed this visit. Just as friendly and food just as good! Good service and a great view. Ate here 4 nights and the food was delicious each time.

My Wife and I ate here a couple of times during September 2016. On both occasions we enjoyed the food and received excellent service. We both particularly liked the Beef Stifado. The restaurant is located in an elevated position with a nice view so we stayed for the evening on each visit, enjoying a few drinks after our meal.

Vast dining area under a giant pitched roof but with only three tables occupied it had a real end of season feel. Atmosphere not helped by over-dramatic Greek music. Not much of a view to the sea in the distance. Saving grace was the food which was well cooked, well presented and felt a bit cheaper than other tavernas in... More

Good food,good staff,good Greek entertainment. Bit out of the way but worth a vist if you are staying local or have a hire car,wish it had been open during the day,could have done with calling in for a cold drink on the way to and on the way from the beach.

We love this place! Food allergies were no problem. They went through the menu with us and made sure what we ordered was safe to eat. The food was great and at a great price. The alchoholic drinks were generous. We ate there all week as it was the best place to eat in the area. Staff are always friendly... More

Such an attractive setting, over the years we must have visited FOIS 25 times and have never had a bad experience. The food is traditionally greek, excellent, plentiful and very reasonably priced. Nikki and family are all very friendly, its lovely to see their children growing up and helping out. I would and do recommend FOIS to anyone, its certainly... More
