Quality mezes

We enjoyed our meal here on our last night. Hard to say if it's the best as it is different to many others at the port which serve main size meals vs. mezes. Lamb chops were great as were the sausages and pork loin. Salads ok, I don't particularly like the way saganaki is presented on Lesvos... read more

Weve ate there for dinner and dishes are bad. My wife ate grilled chicken and it was too spicy and wings still on it. Restaurant is owned by an Australian family and they are speaking perfect English but thats all.

Portions were small and poor value compared to other places, service was somewhat slow and haphazard, not surprising considering the age of some of the staff. maybe we just chose a bad night to visit.

Had read reviews and decided to give this a try but were a bit disappointed. Service was slow. Sat for ages before a menu was even brought to us. Food was average, edible, but nothing special. Maybe we just picked the wrong night. Didn't go back to find out though!

Fabulous restaurant on the harbour side serving traditional Greek food "meze" style. This allows you to try a range of different dishes and even experiment on a few that are not often seen on tourist menus. Service is brilliant - highly recommended !

Brilliant food. We had meze. That is a Greek version of tapas. You order 3-4 small plates pr. person and share the food as you please. Everything is tasty and well prepared with fresh ingredients. The friendly staff is relaxed and have time for you.

We were lucky to find this restaurant on our first night and came back twice during our one week holiday. We loved choosing around 12 Mezes for the four of us and it was a great opportunity to try new dishes. We liked all of them, apart from the grilled Octopus which was a bit tough. The setting is perfect... More

You can try here many types of Greek mezes. Except chicken dishes I liked everything I tasted. Service is good and on time.

It's hard to be as positive as the rest on here. Captain's Table was fully booked as we arrived, but as someone left at the time we arrived we got a table. The place was busy, too busy. The waiters handled it nicely, though it was clear they had too much on their hands. We ordered a set menu, as... More
