The food in matoula is good, and this is not a given within the castle of Monemvasia. Both the Greek casserole dishes and the -expensive- fresh fish are well made. The restaurant is very popular (there are even queues), and this is the reason that, brusque service and all, one sometimes feels part of a conveyor belt.

Famiiy of 4 visited 'Matoula' twice for dinner during our 2-night short- stay in Monemvasia. Even without any reservations service was quick and ultra-efficient. Even without asking they tried to get us the best table possible with a view of the sea. All appetisers and main courses we tried were excellent; meat , seafood and veg dishes were equally good....

If you are ever in Monemvasia there inst a better place for lunch or dinner but Matoulas restaurant. Quick service, authentic fresh Greek food while enjoying panoramic views during your meal. We were eight people who spent one night at beautiful and unique Monemvasia before cruising next day to Elafonisos. I was so lucky that my dearest niece who knows... More

We tried to have lunch at this restaurant today. We walked in to the restaurant and the staff left us just standing there waiting for any form of acknowledgement. They overtly carried on with what they were doing without even a 'hello' or a smile. The manager appeared to be too busy dealing with the cats to be bothered with... More

We have a cat at home. We love him. However, we do not let him urinate where we eat. Yes, that happened. And that's when we got up, paid & left. To be honest, I probably could have overlooked the cats if they weren't all disfigured. One had lost an eye. One was limping. Another had a huge wound on... More

Me and my fiancé have never been treated worse before. No one speaking to us when in search for a table and even replying in a bad manner when we asked them. They had us waiting at a table for another table to be released and spoke to us with no respect at all while passing by our table. We... More

We were advised by the owner of the Theofanos Art Hotel to visit this restaurant. We were very happy we did. The food was delicious and the view amazing!! The staff was attentive to all our needs. We ordered house wine, fava, octopus in wine, barbounia fish on the grill, and steamed vegetables. All was super!
