A very nice evening with very tasty food and a lot of laughs. Spyros is a great entertainer and a lot of attention for all his guests. Debby is a master in the kitchen. Thanks for a lovely evening

Nice bread and wine, waited a while for main course considering it wasn't busy. Main course was tasty but portion was very large. Very friendly, nice atmosphere

We visited Spyros Taverna twice during our weeks stay in Gouves. Spyros has opened a new restaurant since our last visit in 2014. He still comes and picks you up from your hotel and drops you back when you want. This new venue is even lovelier than the last. We had mixed fish, mixed grill, spaghetti with crab to name... More
