It doesn't happen often that I can't finish my mixed grill at a Greek restaurant, and it certainly wasn't due to the lack of quality! Sizeable portions, good food. Only concern was the amount of staff; if all the tables are booked, you have to exercise some patience.

And then there was the Chicken Souvlaki, moist, lightly smoked and scented with fresh Rosemary, the courgette fritters, and the tasty Sole!! Made all the more enjoyable by Yannis' hospitality. He was happy to recommend and advise, making the kids feel special too. With meat, bread, wine, fruit and vegetables sourced from their farm this is a must try opposite... More

This place is just outside the OBC/Sunwing complex and deserves more visitors. Ask for the todays special, and you will be served what the grand-mother in the kitchen has picked up form the market or from their own farm. I went 2 times and had grilled fresh fish with the vegetable dish of the day. I recommend this place, and... More

No fancy, pansy - just really good food. Yannis provides the atmosphere - a bit talkative on one hand, but also very informative and charming. Very informal service. Homemade food made with love and we're told with home grown ingredients. We had fresh fish, cooked in the fire, veil and of course lamb chops. This was all good, but personally... More

We ate at Aposperitis Taverna while we visited Makrigialos in June/July. The food is excellent and well-priced, all is fresh food, produced from organic products from the family's own farm. Starters are just amazing and rich (baked own feta cheese and okras etc.) and main courses are more than one can eat:) ( sensational fish-soup with sea bass etc.). Follow... More

This was the first restaurant we visited during our week long stay in Makry Gialos, and also the only place we ate. The food was excellent and the atmosphere very friendly. Tip for a great family dinner: order your entire meal from the starters menu (a couple per person) and enjoy a varied and very tasty meal.

We tried this restaurant purely by chance. We had the best Greek food I've ever tested. After talking to the very friendly owner, Yannis, we found that all their fresh ingredients come from their own farm. Even the fish is freshly caught each day. Although this may mean that the fish you want may not be available that day, you... More

We ate here quite frequently as the food was fresh and well cooked. The lamb chops were to die for and it was a very friendly family run taverna
