We returned to Alykes this year for our honeymoon because we had such a fabulous 10 days there last year. Our favourite restaurant last year was The Taverna Ponderosa and we went there the first night to see if things were as good. We were not disappointed and ate there for 11 of the 14 nights we were in Alykes.... More
