Being a vegetarian, I've struggled with food choices in Greece. I'm usually stuck with spinach or cheese pies and salads; very little variety - this restaurant is no exception. My partner, who isn't a vegetarian, has slightly more variety but in his case nothing has been exceptional. This restaurant has very good views of the water, but just standard fare.... More

I have been to that restaurant several times. Their food has never been disappointing, but has never been impressive either. The location though is great and I think that makes it the best choice in the castle, in order to avoid the crowds walking up and down the Main Street , passing next to where you are trying to enjoy...

Excellent location, tremendous view, awesome service and great food! I was going every day to that place to eat. Steaks are superb and local food unsurpassable!

Typical Greek taverna in the castle of Monemvasia. Food, portions, prices on the average scale. Nothing special but would would go again because is one of those places that you know what to expect. The price for 2 was 32 Euro (1 appetizer, 1 salad, 2 dishes, a coke and 1/4 wine) You should try the cooked meat dishes (chicken,... More

The view was great, but the food was not fresh (heated premade) and small portions. The service was good. Bit expensive for its services and food.

I visited this restaurant on a week day. The service was fast, everything I ordered arrived in ten minutes. I asked for local specialties but they didn't serve any. The food was nothing special, but it seemed to me like it was the only available place to eat that day. I payed 25 euros for a salad, an appetiser and... More

It is a nice traditional restaurant but the prices are not so "traditional ". The food was tasty and the service was good. The portion of the main meal was quite big, on the contrary salads and sideorders were enough small. The service was mediocre.

I liked the view, the kindness of the waiter, the food and the wine. Not bad prices as well. Nothing to dislike.
