Traditional Greek Taverna

Because I'd been eating traditional greek food all week I decided to have a pizza instead......what can I say.....it was absolutely bloody lovely, can't remember the last time I enjoyed a pizza so much. My partner had the veal which was tender and succulent. The house... read more

This place had only just opened for the season and it looked like no one had bothered to clean it out from the last year. the windows were thick with grease and dust plus dead insects. Having said that, the place was really busy, who wouldn't be at 15 euros for 2 people, with 3 courses plus a glass of... More

What an amazing character! We had the fish platter and there was more than plenty of it - and delicious. They also make their own wine and feel more than sampled the white. We also had lots of entertainment from the Captain - surreal and hilarious. Enjoy! (Still haven't got to the bottom of the Viagra Spaghetti, though.)

This place is very inconspicuous. It's old and not very attractive but it doesn't matter! Food is just awesome. It's fresh and traditional and really well done. Prices are better than in other restaurants or similar. If you search real Greek traditional food. That's the place! We ate there once and didn't go anywhere else during our stay. And the... More

On our last visit which admittedly was in the last few days of the season we ordered pizza and it was awful. The bases were the pre... More

What a great place to have a traditional Greek meal! One first impressions it does look a bit run down but Captain Michael is quite a character larger than life and full of stories! The food is prepared in a clay oven by his brother and is second to none! Wine is also home made and delicious!

The Captain is always there to entertain guests, food is good, they use a big traditional oven, Fish is fresh, and the greek traditional dishes are excellent. The place looks like it needs some work, maybe that's why it doesn't attract so many people

We so loved our visit to this place, simply to see the Captain doing what he does best as he's such a great character! Good typical Greek food, though we ordered far too much and couldn't eat it all!! A really nice evening, and everyone should visit here once if only to meet the Captain!!
