friendly, nice atmosphere

We were here on the 27th July 15, this is Greek dancing night in the square and consequently is very very busy. The service is a little slower than normal (also here on the 25th) but that understandable issue aside, the food is good (although not quite up to high standards evident on the 25th) and... read more

The food was ok but not as nice as some of the other restaurants in the square. the guy that greeted us had a little to much to drink that day. There was clearly an alcohol stinch. The rest of the staff was not so friendly as the other restaurants in the square. Sorry guys, maybe u had a bad... More

George was great as were the other staff, finding us a nice bottle of wine and treating our girls like princess's!! The food was lovely we thought it was so... More

What a fantastic evening we had. Monday night is Greek night and we were all dancing in the square. Highly recommend. The food was amazing too.

Came here for both the Greek night and the night before. It is necessary to book for the Greek night this is why we visited on consecutive nights. On both occasions the meal was good and the Greek night well worth a visit. Perhaps a little more expensive than other places but not by much.

Came here one night while in Crete! As I don't eat meat I tried to order fish but I was told they were all out of fish ! In the end I ordered courgette croquettes and garlic bread to eat as my main course. The croquettes were overly wet and had no taste while the garlic bread tasted like a... More

Great Welcome, Great food, Great Price, Amazing Dancing. A Brilliant Monday night out. This is a must go place for any local tourist. We were a party of 4 adults and 3 kids. A perfect family place to have a greek night out.

We were lucky enough to stay near Sofas at the Diamond Villag in May. Kostas recommended Georgiou's restaurant to us and we were not disappointed. Food was superb, and service second to none. My fillet steak was so tender you didn't even need a knife. Great choice of dishes too and I had to return for a second meal on... More
