A lovely greek taverna in the square of Vathy serving excellent food which is also well presented. Great service and hospitality provided by Effie & Hector, and you are always made to feel very welcome.The Kleftico served here is the best we have ever tasted in Greece, also try the Stifado and Calamari. Desserts and wine are also excellent, good... More

Recommended this place so thought we'd give it a try. There are few restaurants that we tried in the harbour, but this one stuck out for us. The service and the food were excellent. The sea bass to die for and the table wine sublime..... Ohhh if I could just click my fingers and be back there this evening....

Lovely place, lovely people and lovely food. Since the beginning of our sailing trips in this area, we've been coming here and it's still a charming place to return to in the past fifteen years.

Used this restaurant over the years but not for the past 7 years. However standards as good as ever with perfect hosting by Effi & Hector. Food great as always with the highlight being the freshest calamari ever (no greasy rubber here) followed by superb Sea Bass. Already looking forward to going back.

Fabulous restaurant next to the Town Quay on the Village Square. Serving Very traditional Greek dishes. Best food we had during our weeks Catamaran trip around the Southern Ionian. We've returned every year for the last 6 years and each year we are welcomed like old friends by Effe & her lovely husband & family/staff. The Beef Stifado was beautiful.... More

Whilst sailing around the Southern Ionian we have visited Rose Gardens on many occasions, our first visit back in 1982 & our latest in 2016, they still provide fantastic choices all at good prices. Difficult to recommend any specific dish as they are all great
