Brilliant, food in a great location right on the beach. We had dorado, octopus and lamb…all cooked to perfection. The service was also top class.

Only got to visit this little gem towards the end of our holiday, due to the fact our girls were struggling to get up in the mornings; not necessarily a bad thing when on holiday. However we had a few drinks on the beach in...the glorious sunshine from here the one sat, the next we had to have lunch. What a setting! What a restaurant! Until you enter and go back up towards the bar, you don’t reply get a feel for it’s size. The service, the food, the prices are absolutely second to none. With both of us having been in hospitality literally all of our working careers, we love eating out and dining abroad, they do it so well! If staying here make sure you make the trip down to this fabulous tranquil (even with our two girls) little beach and have some lunch in this beautiful restaurant.More

Very quiet place, almost no tourists. Great place to spend the day with the family. The tavern offered very tasty Greek cuisine. Stelios had everything we wanted.

Heard great reviews about this restaurant from people in the hotel we were staying at and thought we’d give it a try. Very disappointing as this was reservation only. The restaurant was empty even at 8:00pm and still declined our custom… I certainly won’t be...attempting to eat in this establishment again whilst on our holiday. There was only one other restaurant down in the bay… again this was fully booked. Be warned (steep hills involved if walking). It amazes me that with over 18 months of no tourists due to COVID-19 (and poor numbers of tourists this holiday season), they turn down custom.More

An incredible family meal last evening. Unspoilt views of the seafront. Atmosphere just perfect. Hospitality was truly magnificent. Food was divine. Prices fair. Sparkler in cocktail and free dessert with ouzo and raki digestif, such a lovely touch. Thank you all 😊

We just popped up for a quick lunch, but ended up spending few hours in this lovely taverna. Service was super friendly, food and wine were delicious. Complimentary dessert was amazing!

Restaurant next to the seaside, waiters are very kind and always smiling, the attention to details is very high, you feel really welcomed. The restaurant really gives you Greek seaside vibes but makes you feel at home. Food is very good, fish in particular, portions...are generous and it’s been a pleasure to come here twice! Definitely our favorite restaurant here in Agia Pelagia! And important thing, all sanitary measure seem to be respected, everybody working here wears masks, there is sanitizer on every table and at the entrance and tablecloths are disposable, very much appreciated!More

Used this place for beach drinks and food regularly during our holiday. House wine was really good and the Mythos chilled as you like, perfect for a hot sunny day in the beach. Staff are all really friendly and even gave us a short cut...back to our hotel! Food was good and a selection of fruit followed every meal.More

After our diving trip we went to the taverna and really enjoyed the food. The taverna is located in the beautiful mononaftis bay where you can go snorkeling. The staff was so friendly and we got a lot of delicious extra food (the dessert was...extraordinary), would definitely come back again!More
