The most delicious traditional food served on a flower filled balcony with the most gorgeous views of the byzantine houses and the sea.

I think that says it all? And having worked our way through most of the menu in the process we are in a good place to judge. Each dish has been excellent. The service is very efficient and being recognised as "regulars" we got a nice little treat yesterday! Try their own white wine. Great location - seats at the... More

The environment in the garden was great with amazing views and the service good. We tried 3 or 4 different dishes, which were ok (nothing special).

Very good service and location, though too much expensive for the quality of food. It's ideal before sunset or with fool moon

The food was generally acceptable, but I found nothing that would make me return to the restaurant, apart from the great view of the castle town.

This restaurant used to be legendary. Now it is mediocre. Most of the staff very friendly only one waiter was rude to us and harsh on the wonderful cats of Monemvasia

Not a great experience - the anchovies were very salty (as if they were canned rather than fresh); the red mullet flesh was tired and brown; one felt crowded which was made worse by the fact that one customer insisted that the fan was turned off so that the rest of us had to suffer in the heat. Unfortunately the... More

We visit Monemvasia almost every year during the last twenty five years. Unfortunately it is very difficult to find a good restaurant in the castle. We have tested all the restaurants inside the castle and we believe that by far this is the best restaurant. Especially during late spring and summer time , the setting ( outdoor) is very beautiful.

After a bad experience at another restaurant the previous evening we decided to visit this one. They do not accept bookings and clearly try and turn the tables around quickly. We found a table on the front with lovely views and ordered our meal. White wine and water, a starter, 2 mains and a bottle of red. The white wine... More
