Had a marvelous meal here. The setting is perfect at the harbourfront. Watching the sunset was spectacular. Salads and appetizers were good. The snapper (dorado) was delicious. Beautifully presented with fresh broccoli zucchini and cooked greens. Fresh fruit for dessert ended a perfect meal. Just to add, this was an expensive meal with the fish being priced by weuight.

Really fine grilled fish, which you can purchase by the kilo. They also let you pick your particular fish ("Cook that one, please!) but we let them pick for us, and it was great. Marvelous mussels, too. Go with what they have new and fresh. You can't go wrong.

The restaurant/taverna has a very friendly nature. The owner is omnipresent and tries to satisfy every customer. The food, the salad, the meat is good and the bulk red wine brings from Nemea (Agiorgitiko, like Cabernet). At the evenings is very nice to sit one out, despite being in a central location, the view is a vast municipality parking (the... More

You can look at the raw fish and pick one for the grill - we chose Tsiaporus at the recommendation of a local friend who says this the best greek food on this restaurant row. While waiting have their excellent taramsalate, and greek salad or the roka salad ( arugula), toms, cukes and crumbled feta. Walnut cake for dessert was... More

We chose sea bass and veal, both were tasty. The veal was very thick and cooked beautifully. Although the veal came with chips we ordered more and was pleased we had.

What a grand surprise after a fairly sour start to our days visit to this town. The HOHO service was dreadful and the lack of interest had us nearly heading back to the ship! Just so glad we didn't and got to sample this wonderful establishment. The menu looked extensive and could have been quite expensive, however we spotted a... More

This was by far the most expensive meal that we had in Greece, but by no means the best. The food was OK, but nothing special. We had fresher sardines elsewhere, and the grilled prawns ("shrimp") were very large and not particularly tasty. On the other hand, the sea bream was good, and we were offered complimentary fruit with honey... More

We were a big group and all of us were really hungry. The owner improvised a menu for our table and served us tender boiled octapus, and one of the best grilled calamari I have ever tasted, followed by super fresh white grouper. All in all, an excellent meal.

Not only did the host entice us in and then provide indifferent service and tasteless food, but after eating only two of the shellfish I was served, I became sick with food poisoning almost immediately after leaving this restaurant. There are few customers during the week. The fish and shellfish sit around entirely too long. Do not take a chance!

Excellent food, service and value for money. Located in the heart of Nafplio along the promenade adds to the ambience and atmosphere. The manager, Giorgos, and the staff are all very friendly, helpful and speak english. They accommodated for our dietary needs and made our culnerary experiences very pleasant. We highly recommend this place!
