We came here which is in the middle of harbor after we read the comments. Really good good restaurant which i can say hidden beauty. Very delicious food and no need to bother your self for the food choices. You might leave your order to Komninos suggestion and just enjoy the night with bottle (maybe two) Retzina... Guzel ve huzurlu... More

We came to the island from Kas for the day, so I wanted to try some classically Greek food to contrast with the Turkish food we'd been eating. This place definitely did the trick. Greek salad was excellent, with amazing tomatoes and cold cucumbers. Moussaka was also fantastic, freshly made, lots of bechamel and tender eggplant. Octopus stifado was also... More

Loved sitting under the grape vine tasting the local fare. Great food at surprisingly reasonable prices. Make sure you try the stuffed calamari

It's so good there's got to be an investigation! Although a barmy Brit living in Australia (as you will tell from my babble) I know my Greek food, with me mum being Greek. I speak fluent Greek. Other restaurants are absolutely bobbins and don't have a scooby-doo what they're doing! This restaurant does though. The waiter is friendly. This lad... More

Getting straight to the point. If you want great greek dishes this is the place. All the restaurants on the island serve good grill seafood but this restaurant does greek dishes!! A must. (I would rate this no 1 on the island) We did go to Paragadi as well but Only Story...Only Time is far better. Service, price and quality... More

Traditional Greek taverna serving fantastic food, we ate there 8 out of our 10 nights on the island, It was always busy and service was excellent.

The other recent reviews say it all! It's traditional, with a varied and interesting menu, and each dish is cooked with love and served with laughter and smiles. Delio!

'Old Time' had caught my eye the day we arrived, the traditional and very simple taverna style suggested thus would be a hit for us. I have become increasingly sceptical of restaurants with cosy sofas and glossy menus. The Waffle and cappuccino day tourists are unlikely to like this place, which was rather supported but the dismissive glances as many... More

We ate here nearly every night of our 10 night stay... Why you ask? Simply because it is the best food and service the island has to offer. Run by a local married couple - Lola and Kominos - this traditional seaside taverna offers all you need on this magnificent Greek island. We highly recommend Lola's stuffed calamari, octopus stifado... More

We were a group of four who dined at this wonderful quay side taverna, known as Old Story, in Kastellotizo. We had stuffed tomatoes and peppers, baked giant beans, wonderful spicy chickpeas, mousakka, meatballs and the local house white. Everything was made with love and affection and tasted just like my grandmother would have cooked. Being a Greek I probably... More
