Great views and service

We ate here twice, once at dinner where we had very helpful and kind service and ok food and the second time at lunch where the food was better (we chose lots of little plates like the cheese in pastry and aubergine dishes and they were all fantastic).

The sunset view in the evening was great. We enjoyed potato salad, stuffed tomatoes, and spaghetti with veal along with a nice white Greek house wine. All the food was well prepared and service was good. The overall atmosphere, service and menu selections made for a great evening.

The view is really good, but come here for a drink only, definitely not the food. Moussaka was old and tired, its sauce was a dirty grey. Reheated over and over again. Wine glasses scratched and well past their use by date. Service underwhelming. Doesn't take much to smile and take an interest in your customers. Really resent spending my... More

We enjoyed the setting of the restaurant and the food was good quality.There was an extensive wine list and we would recommend the local Monemvasia wine.

We ate at Matoula's based on Rick Steves' recommendation. Normally Rick is very reliable, but we were a bit disappointed. It was a bit too chilly to eat outside, so we dined inside. We tried the egg fish salad as an appetizer, but I found it too fishy. My wife, of course, loved it! For our main courses, Gail enjoyed... More

The views are quite spectacular. Ordered the octopus (11 Euro!), the horiatiki (village) salad, tzatziki, loukaniko (sausage), slow cooked, oven lamb, bottle of water and glass of red. Other than the lamb the food lacked any taste of substance. But the most memorable experience is the cat issue. If your profile is such where eating at a restaurant where a... More

Been there with my wife and our 2 teenage children. We had a nice dinner under the moonlight. The food was ok but not exceptional. The service was very good.
