Best restaurant in Hersonissos

The staff are lovely, the food is awesome, the price is great. Best food, we wish we had more time to keep returning back. We only got to go there twice. On a Monday they do lamb cooked round the fire, it was delicious. Make sure you get to try this restaurant but look up where it is as it... read more

Had dinner here last night after it was recommended to me and my partner, and we were certainly glad we tried it. The food was of great quality and taste and the service was also super. Would definitely recommend it to others and we will certainly be back again during our holiday. Romantic & relaxing :)

We didn't fancy running the gauntlet of the main restaurant run so we called at Votsalo just up a side street. The owner was very helpful in explaining the dishes and his subtle twists on some popular dishes. My kleftico had melted cheese on top and the potatoes in the dish just the way I like it , loads of... More

We have always visited Votsalo to eat during our many trips to Hersonissos and we have seen the place grow. Thanks to the dedication and hard work of the owner Tolis and his wife Georgia the quality of their services has steadily increased. The beautiful setting of the terrace is supported by the delicious dishes and great wines. The service... More

I only wish we would have found this place from the beginning of our holiday and not the last day of our stay. We have eaten out twice per day at some 15+ restaurants, but none come even close to the quality of food, level of serving and hospitality that Votsalo presented. If you wish to eat at a restaurant... More

I'm sitting here on our fourth visit in 11 days having had a gorgeous meal, yet again. I can't fault anything. The staff are so friendly and the service is amazing. The food speaks for itself.

Amazing fresh cooked food and a fantastic homemade wines. Highly recommend for those who look for a quiet place and different from what you try it in Hersonissos, different approach in terms of food.

A lovely evening chatting to the genuinely nice owner and staff, being shown the roast lamb keeping warm after 5 hrs cooking in front of an open fire, nice contorni including a good Greek salad & some home made liquor to follow. A beautiful evening on the outside terrace upstairs. An enjoyable experience.

Nice tavern with plenty of dishes, national white-blue colors and friendly staff! Locals are nice and really interested in your enjoyment and good spare time – that’s always pleasant. About food – different kind of meat with red wine company will be good choice! Serious food ))
