Lovely food in a beautiful stylish restaurant. Whether its seafood, or meat done on the grill you'll find a lovely meal at Medusa. You'll be spoilt for choice for a nice bottle of wine from Antonio's large selection.

From start to finish this family taverna was our go to place. Fun friendly family. Fab food and drink. Reasonably priced. We never stopped laughing from the moment we stepped in until the moment we left. The dad was a great character,vno English but very...funny. Kept the raki topped up. If you're in the island hotel or near definitely recommend a visit.More

I visited here on my first night and it was such a lovely experience I just had to go back on my last night too. The staff are so friendly and attentive, when I visited again last night they remembered my name and my drink....The food is outstanding, my first visit I had the seafood linguine and last night the seafood mixed plate, which was out of this world. I’d definitely recommend giving Medusa a visit.More

We visited Medusa twice during our stay at The Island Hotel in June 2022. The food was lovely, with the prawn cocktail as a highlight. The staff were very friendly, even joining us in a shot of Raki to finsih the meal.

The restaurant is beautiful and staff very friendly. The food portions are small though and quite pricey compared to other places in the area.
