Harbour-side dining with fresh fish and grilled meats

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... read more

Looking forward to seeing Sofia, Yannis & Adonis, who offer a wide & varied family friendly menu at their taverna & steakhouse. The atmosphere is relaxed & friendly.

I must say... I took the risk and didn't loose. I went to Skorpios after checking out from TripAdvisor and I didn't know what to expect. The result was rewarding, the food was good and I did enjoy every bit of it.

We stopped here to eat on our trip to the Rock. Very friendly staff. Food was quite good. Authentic (we are Greek descent) and fresh. I picked out my fish and it was grilled to perfection. A good choice in the area

After arriving and checking in to our hotel, we were recommended this restaurant. It turns out that several local businesses would recommend this restaurant to us during our short stay. Keep in mind that being Greek, the tourist traps are really not something that we seek out during our vacations! We ordered a variety of seafood. The small calamari had... More

Was recommended by one of the store keepers and it was great. Not only the location, which is right on the water, and in town (not the castle). South of the bridge linking the mainland with the rock of monemvasia. If you're coming from the castle and pass the bridge, take the first left. I think it's the first restaurant... More

We visited this restaurant after looking on Tripadvisor for a good restaurant that served fresh fish. It is almost the last restaurant when walking around the small harbour opposite the rock in Monemvasia. We certainly weren't disappointed - my husband was taken to the kitchen by the lovely owner - Julie and showed various fresh fish that were available. Julie... More

This was the second time of eating and what was wonderful was that we were remembered from the previous visit! I called in earlier to check that they were open tonight and saw the chef wearing a hairnet and gloves. I can't say tha I have seen such a thing in any other Greek restaurant / taverna. The food was... More

We had dinner in this place because it was the number 5 out of 33 restaurants. We ordered different small items like tzaziki, greek salad and pastitio. It was ok but I expected it to be better. I liked the tomatoes being peeled, but I had better tomatoes during my stay in Greece. The tzaziki was nice but I like... More
