A typical Greek taverna in the castle of Monemvasia. Food is good portions are ok and prices are average.

We visited monemvasia during our 2-days stay on Elia. Everyone we asked for the best place to eat around pointed at Matoula or Venetia (the name of the owner). We consulted trip advisor which ranked it amongst the best and decided to give it a try. We tried beef and stake. Both were moderate, not well cooked and quite expensive.... More

Very friendly service, excellent food. Barrel wine was only rose. Not red. Very good stuffed cabbage leaves recommendation and pork 'tigania'. He didn't seem to have a set menu for Christmas, which is great not to capitalise on tourists and mainly offer what you've got.

Very touristic, but the options for dining inside the castle are very limited. The prices were, as expected, quite high.

We got here late during the world cup and ordered a couple of dishes. The eggplant salad was absolutely the best I have ever had. Their dolmas tasted like my mom and the specialty was nice too. The price was great, the garden gorgeous and the service good.

Wonderful fresh food, great service and an unsurpassed location dining on the terrace. Service was great and the views out over the ocean complemented the authentic local cuisine.

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.
