Was sorry to see Columbos closed. Good pasta and good portion sizes for a reasonable price on Mondays and Thursdays.

My wife and I have been here on three separate occasions, all on a Sunday afternoon. Each time we were treated to warm friendly service, like being at home. We always order off the lunch menu and yet the food portions are bountiful! Neither of us can finish and there is always enough for a light meal later or for... More

Love the lamb at this restaurant and everything else we've tried on their Greek choices has been excellent. Nice atmostphere and good service for a fair price.

We decided that we would try Columbo's Taverna for supper on a Sunday night. It was quite busy with a party of 25 just after us. But no problem, we were served and received our food with not a big wait. We had the lamb and chicken souvlakis which were very good and lots to eat. Pleasant atmosphere and staff.

Since moving to the Island we have had a difficult time finding food we deem worth going out for. Columbo's fits this bill and then some. All 4 of us were very pleased with the quality of our food. It took a while to get served, but it's not fast food and it was pretty busy. I would recommend This... More

Had a wonderful meal at Columbo's. Homey tasty Greek food that just made a wet rainy day better. Had moussaka meal which was plentiful and very nicely seasoned with large greek salad and potatoes. Very respectable wine menu. Attentive but not pushy service.

We have never had a bad experience at Columbo's. Patience is needed to get served when it gets busy because it doesn't have enough servers, but in this economy, I can understand making sure there aren't too many staff standing with little to do. The restaurant as been in business 15 years. A great place for Greek food without worrying... More

You enter Greece immediately!! The decor and interior design is that of sitting at a Greek restaurant near a plaza...stucco, arches, plants, warm & inviting atmosphere. The staff are very pleasant and easy going...helpful in selections and non-intrusive. The food was simply Wonderful and tasty. I will be returning here on a regular, weekly basis.

I don't come here often, but everytime I do I'm delighted with the quality of the food, the service is friendly, they accommodate happily 'sitting where you prefer' rather than where they would like to place you, and since the portions are HUGE they always offer a doggie bag with a smile. Value for money and taste you can't beat... More
