We had an early dinner (6p) and had the place to ourselves. Had to eat indoors because the wind was howling 40kmh. Veal with onions was delicious as was the aubergines, meat stuffed grapes leaves, salad and wine. A tad expensive but that's because it's on the rock. We'd definitely go back.

A nice place to be with better than average Greek food. Service was ok and we went there each night. Only thing I didn't like were the cats everywhere.

A nice leafy outdoor character setting - not just an open space. Long established restaurant with rooftop views to the water. The food is traditional Greek cuisine, very fresh and delicious and service comes with a bit of banter and a smile.

Eating on Matoula’s vine-covered patio is a pleasant way to pass the time and to recover from your exertions of climbing up to the Old Town in Monemvasia. The patio overlooks the sea and is absolutely lovely. Service was not especially fast or attentive on our recent afternoon visit, but once we’d made it clear that we were actually planning... More

Great location with tables out in the private courtyard. Service was quick and efficient. Menu catered for all dietary needs. Fresh fish, catch of the day, was outstanding, well prepared and presented. Very reasonably priced.

Good solid Greek fare, nothing special. Nice terrace overlooking the sea. Reasonable prices, by Monemvasia standards.

We had a nice lunch at Matoula in August. The views of the ramparts and the sea are lovely, and the temperature is comfortable under the leafy arbor. The stuffed pepper and tomato were the best we had in Greece, and the fish was very good. It's true that the service is aloof and sometimes lackadaisical -- not the warm... More

We had lunch on July 2014 at Matoula restaurant and even though we were concerned that it might be a tourist attraction with moderate food, we were proven wrong! Great location, good traditional food, great prices!
