I have to say it's nice to go to a peacefully restaurant and not get hassled every five minutes by the staff,they were so pleasant did not try and force you to have something else..the seafood was so fresh,situated next to a calm beach.all I can say is we will definitely be back.

We waited for our food for 2 hours, then we've got not that we have ordered, seafood was not fresh, and was overgrilled. Worst ever!

Family restaurant serving wide variety of dishes from Greece and aboard. Grilled meat and fish are mouthwatering. Pastas and chicken are also made with best greek tradition and obviously with love for food and cooking. Location is excellent - by the sea, but not close to any busy street. As family, we highly recommend.

I rarely rate restaurants here, as in our experience they can vary widely from one visit to the next, especially in tourist areas. However, there are always exceptions and this is one. Choose your own fish and let them work their magic on the charcoal grill, with baked potatoes on the grill thrown in and a nice fresh salad -... More

Restaurant was recommended to us but the experience was disappointing. The service was impersonal. Although two of the four of us had an excellent meal, the third felt his choice was fairly dry, perhaps overcooked. My meal was forgotten, arrived long after the others and was overcooked. They started packing away while we were still there which was very early... More

If you are looking for some GOOD Greek food, which is reasonably priced, with a beautiful view of the ocean, then Faros restaurant is the place to go. The fish is fresh caught that day. Your meat or fish is grilled right in front of you. The owners Harris & Maria as well as the other staff are very friendly.... More

Faros is a family run beach side restaurant. There are many restaurants around but I guess after we had our lunch there, we felt that it must be the best place to have food around and voila! When I checked Tripadvisor, it rated it No. 1. No doubt. We got fresh fish, barbecued and also had octopus, grilled on fire.... More

Faros is located near a small beach. There is indoor seating inside the restaurant and across the road on the beach is a covered area for dining. I had a traditional greek gyros and my husband had grilled chicken cooked over coals. The service is good and prices are very reasonable.

Was recommended to go here by a local shop keeper. He says he eats there. While not exceptional by any means, I liked the older man ( presumably the owner) tending a flaming BBQ with fish and souvlaki a cooking away. I had chicken and my wife pork. Tasty enough. A nice touch was receiving a BBQ'd potato in its... More
