Description: A restaurant with a great reputation both in Greece and abroad. Our international visitors have spread our name all over Europe and we are mentioned in every tourist guide that involves Ithaca and Kioni. All our dishes are cooked with greek olive oil and the freshest ingredients. Our fish is provided by the local fishermen and our meat comes from the local market to support the local economy.

We (2 persons) stayed here for food. The restaurant is really unacceptable since the prices are extremely high (i think tzatziki 4.5, potatoes 4 etc). we took a mixed of meat which was really funny since it had a tiny sausage, a tiny beef, a microscopic chicken and a small pork with 10-12 potatoes. His price? 13 euros. I was laughing when i saw it. The bread costs 1 euro per person (2 slices) and a warm bottle of water costs 2 euros. it has a good position near the sea but when we were there there were boats that were parking in front of us and the people were coming out of the boats just in front of our table and passing through our chairs, disturbing us without saying sorry. Don't go there.

I went there last night, awful restaurant, they even don't know they have clients!
We waited about 15 minutes to seat, and that's okay but then, we waited half an hour, because no one asked if we wanted to order, so I had to ask for the waiter myself.
Here the nightmare begins, we waited another half an hour to get some wine and then, another hour to get our food.
My 4 little shrimps for 12.50€ were cold and not even good, in the meanwhile my wine became hot and I couldn't even drink it anymore, since it was 39 Celsius degrees outside.
The moussaka was nothing special and it was such a little portion for 9€.
In the end, we have been there for 3 hours, then we changed to another restaurant because we were hungry and also angry.

Such a WASTE of TIME!

NEVER go there!
I don't even understand how this restaurant can possibly have good reviews, all the client near us were upset and we have been waiting together our food, it came, 2 hours later, wasn't good at all, and also very expensive.

Dear customer,

Please read the response provided to the immediately previous review with the same title as yours (review by Alessandro D). I am convinced that you are both referring to the same incident so it not really helpful and also rather misguiding to submit two different reviews to make clear the same single disappointing experience.

We've been waiting more than 50 minutes to eat what we've ordered. The wine became hot while waiting and the grilled shrimps were cold (not to mention that the salad was served without oil vinegar and salt).
Overall a bad experience. Definatly not the first restaurants in Kioni.

Dear Customer,

We are sorry for the disappointing experience that you describe. However, it was on the busiest night of this season with a local festival taking place and dozens of people waiting to be served simultaneously. Under such difficult circumstances, it is only human that there might be some delay in the orders although our staff always do their best to satisfy every single guest. We hope to have the chance to offer you a more memorable experience in the future.

We've eaten here several times over the past 4 years and love it. It's a family run restaurant with quite an extensive menu - lovely fresh fish and tranquil setting by the harbour. Flori is always a gentleman and service is impeccable.
