Enjoyable dinner

Located in Gefyra, across the causeway from Monemvasia Rock. It's in a nice quiet location on the water, just a short stroll away from the busier downtown - just follow the waterfront.

Monemvasia means "only one entrance" and was referring to the original castle, the rock called ''goulas''.The rock was separated due to an earth quake around the beginning of the 3rd century ad and now is connected by a bridge to the rest of the land. Most of the population lives on the land before the bridge where the climate is... More

I loved the meal I had there, and I was served in a friendly and competent way. Lovely view too, a little on the outer edge of town, so no so many people.

Our seating on the beach could not be matched. My husband got shrimp and spaghetti and I got the traditional spinach pie of the region. The spinach pie was kind of like thin pizza crust with spinach and cheese on top. It was good but not great. The menu was explained well in English by a young woman, and served... More

The food was so good, that Skorpios was the only restaurant that we actually visited twice in our holiday. Calm location by the sea, friendly staff and tasty food!

An upmarket modernised version of Nammos. It doesn't have the character of Nammos and the food and service, although good, are not as good as Nammos. Skorpios is huge. No beach to speak of but the day beds are spread out between the rocks. Good restaurant and the dance area is really wild. Tip: It’s in a isolated spot and... More

This was in fact somewhere between average and good. The service was on the slow side and the mousaka had potato rather than aubergine! House wine was okay. Probably the best of the bunch we ate here twice. Octopus was grilled and rather overcooked. Meats and fish were good. Greek salad as you would expect it.

I had a wonderful table by the sea in early September with a fabulous view on Monemvasia rock. The menu was excellent, the wine bottle superb and the staff very helpful and kind.

We watched the sun set on the old town Monemvasia while dining on perfectly prepared grilled fresh fish and lamb chops. The setting, the food, the wine and the service were all very, very good. Ask to see the available fresh fish to select what you want to eat. They are most happy to show you what they have on... More
