Went on our first night in paxos, hungry after a long day travelling, we waited ages to be served and then an hour for some food after ordering, during this time we got through 2 half carafes of red wine, that we didn't really want and a litre of water and then when the food came it was really average,...

The food is always excellent, whatever you have here, and George who actually runs the place is a great host. Village Chicken is superb.. The wood fired oven makes some dishes such as pizzas a bit special, too. Home-made Panna Cotta is the best on the island. This is our favourite taverna on the island.

On the first night we visited here, the manager greeted us and we had a very nice chat with him. He was a friendly man who served amazing food. Probably the best I had over the holiday. We visited his taverna again on the final night, again greeted in a friendly way, and had another chat about football!

When a man gets to talk football with the owner of the restaurant, it's a win win !! Greta welcome, great food, lovely people - go there !

We've been coming to Paxos for years but have only recently started eating at Pounentes. We should have come before. Great location and atmosphere and the best moussaka we have tasted; individually made, subtly flavoured and just delicious. Even with a couple of huge bookings (51 people arriving simultaneously) they made sure we were not side lined. Fantastic service. We... More

We stayed In Loggos for a 2 week holiday. During that time we eat out each night .Pounentes Taverna became our favourite place to eat. The staff are friendly and very proud of their wood burning stove.

I've been to Paxos twice now, having just returned from my second trip. I ate at Pounentes a couple of times on my first visit in 2012 and remembered that the food was nice and the staff very friendly - hence going back there on my second trip. My memories of Pounentes were reconfirmed. As a vegetarian, there aren't that... More

We have used this taverna several times over the years and it is always a pleasure. Right in the heart of the village with the life of locals going on around - children playing, people shopping. Where more pleasant to sit with a Malamatina (retsina) and enjoy excellent food and home-baked rolls.The service is run very effectively by George who,... More

I'd disagree with the bad reviews I've read for this taverna. George and his waiters - sometimes only one - are welcoming and attentive and the food is good, Greek home fare with some sophisticated touches. The home made rolls are good and tasty and, if you feel like a pizza, they're always well cooked and authentic. George is exceptionally... More

Just come back from Lakka and looking at some recent reviews for this restaurant I can't believe you ate in the same place. For me, it is one of the two best places to eat, along with Diogenis, in Lakka. George is attentive, chatty and welcoming. Yes, ok, sometimes if a boat mob are in it make take some time... More
