The taverna in this little village is not about haute gastronomie, as is usually not the Greek cuisine, it is about the simple, fresh and well cooked local food. Very friendly staff, family-run business, great views from the terrace, tasty food. Try paidakia, loukaniko, horta, feta saganaki.

Taverna Mariou happened to be our neighbour during our stay in Mariou; a whopping 5 meters ;) through a small path from our garden brought us to this taverna. We were very fortunate to have them so near because the food and atmosphere is nothing short of excellent. Staff is very friendly, alert and fond of children. Our kids loved... More

After a tiring climb up from Preveli this was just what we needed. The Saganaki was amazing, with moussaka and stuffed calamari to follow. Service was great and the views spectacular as promised. We got there fairly early, it was busy by the time we left(8.30). Cheesy garlic bread and pork fillet and chicken souvlaki was great for the girls... More

This is a really good restaurant with very friendly personel. They invited me to have a look into the kitchen, where I could see all the faboluse dishes, they where preparing. The recommendation by Tripadvisor was perfect. If you drive to the restaurant don't stop too early. There is a building before, where you could misinterprete that this is the... More

After three years when we came here again it was as amazing... More

Open from 12:30 PM this is a great place to have lunch or dinner. Whether you like eating inside or outside, in the open or in the shade, they'll have a table for you. We had the moussaka today which was very nice. Lunch for two including drinks was less than 20 euro's. Though just outside Plakias and Myrthos, it's... More
