We went to Matoula's two nights in a row out of the three nights we stayed in Monemvasia in June 2014. The food was excellent, lovely atmosphere, attentive owner and very nice waiter. Well priced. Highly recommended.

Went for the view - and we certainly got that -stunning. Ordered too many of the delicious appetizers - something I often tend to do in Greece. But they were good. The main course were fairly standard however - the octopus seemed less than 100% fresh. Shouldn't taste quite so fishy in the flavour. Service was quick and efficient if... More

The shaded garden is most welcome on a hot day. I ate a light lunch here on a Sunday, with a view of the sea beyond, and a party of Greek revellers at my side. My marides were superb, as was the octopus and their special spinach pie which is what lured me here in the first place. A Greek... More

I love this place. The octopus was fantastic and the garden is very beautiful. Main courses are a bit average for the hefty prices but the seafood is very fresh and well worth it.

Nothing extraordinary but the food was good & the view helped! The fried cheese is a must!! The cats were very annoying while you're trying to eat but other than that the food was good

We have stayed twice inside the castle of Monemvasia. We discovered Matoula the first night we went out for dinner, and it has been our exclusive feeding place ever since. So, if you ask us about other Monemvasia restaurants, we cannot compare. But we have remained so satisfied with the food and service that, if we visit for a third... More

We entered the restaurant's outdoor terrace and as we were taken to our table, we noticed copious numbers of cats, literally, everywhere. We are both allergic and, honestly, considered leaving when we realized the cats were swarming. It wasn't helped by the rude woman seated adjacent to us who smirked and said "are you afraid of cats? Then you are... More

This is a good all rounder. Nothing exceptional but you know you are in a very old established taverna where the cooking is homely, the service friendly and the view from the terrace - out of this world!!

One of the three taverns in the main road inside the castle! Nice food, lovely view and a very beautiful yard to dine!! There are many cats but they didn't bother us to have a calm dinner!Overall it is a nice traditional restaurant!
