Good food, good atmosphere and the best host ever....Perry lives for his restaurant and it shows, the most congenial man I have met in a business, nothing is too much for him and the food is exquisite, love it, can hardly wait to go back next year, I give this restaurant ten stars............

I wasn't sure what to expect here, having never been in a Greek restaurant outside Greece. Well all I can say is, it has definitely made me want to try more! The food is Greek, a really good fillet steak and such friendly welcoming staff. Well worth the visit if you are in the area.

Our hosts at the guest lodge we were staying at recommended this restaurant as what they thought was the best restaurant in St Francis. We were not disappointed as we were made to feel immediately welcome by the owner and given a great table. The waitress recommendations were spot on and we had wonderful evening.

We had been here before, for a lunch but this was the first time for an evening meal. The quality of the hospitality, the food and the entire ambiance is superlative. Perfect evening thanks to our hosts.

The Big Time Taverna located on the canals in St Francis Bay is best experienced when you have plenty of time - time to soak it all in. Take your time with starters from this fabulous Greek menu - share a Meze platter while you watch the boats slowly cruise by. Include a proper Greek salad for the table and... More
