Simple but delicious food

We ate octopus, fish and green salad and there were all very delicious.From the outside it seems like a traditional old cafe but if you go inside there is a lovely garden

We visited a few times - breakfast lunch and dinner were all delicious. Lovely welcoming staff who offered great service. Eating good, fresh greek food in a peaceful garden setting with a glass of decent ( Greek!) wine was a perfect addition to a lovely stay in Chora - was my favorite place.

Chanced upon this restaurant on our 1st island stop during a week long sail through the Cyclades. Delicious food, cooked simply but ingredients spoke for themselves. The Potato and Octopus salad was one of the best dishes that I have eaten anywhere in the world and the only time during my two week stay in Greece that I was served... More

We ate one breakfast and two dinners here over the course of four days in Folegandros. Hands down, it was the best, most creative and most pleasant place to eat. The folks running it were very hospitable and I enjoyed talking to them. I enjoyed their food even more. Highly recommend.

Having eaten twice at Pounda, and before that at Araxe, I have mixed feelings about Pounda. The garden setting is excellent at night with the lighting and general ambience. The wait staff are pleasant and the table service is good. The dishes we tried over 2 nights were good but nothing special. There is no olive oil or balsamic vinegar... More

Pounda restaurant was one of our choices while we visited Folegandros island. We had several breakfasts there, served from lovely young ladies that were warm, gentle and willing to help us and talk with us. The food was ok for us with reasonable prices. But the strong point of Pounda is the backyard. A lovely backyard surrounded by local flowers.... More

Excellent food, good portions, great prices in a beautiful garden served by welcoming, warm, friendly and efficient staff. No matter how busy they were, the service was still friendly and efficient. Between the charming garden, the wonderful food, amazing prices and great service - we couldn't help but here here twice for both lunch and dinner. Do not miss this... More

Revisited Pounda after a gap of eight years and found it to be every bit as good as the initial visit. Beautiful, peaceful and discreet garden setting hidden behind what would appear to be a cafe frontage complements both the quality of food served and the service provided. Our main courses were veal fillet (local from Naxos) and swordfish. Simply... More
