We had a good moment enjoying this nice place. Vegetarian food is varied and nice which is not so common here in Greece!

There was no problem with the hospitality, the waiters are very nice, the restaurant seems very cosy, but after we had a dinner here (fish) my boyfriend and me, both of us had (excuse me) diarrhea under the whole night...

Our quality manager always make sure to offer the best quality of food. Fish is always fresh or alse not even close to the premises and fridge temprerature is... More

It will be a bit of a challenge to find Manolis high up in the old market area of the town. But once you have found it and sat down to enjoy your meal in the courtyard, you will enjoy the peaceful location and some delicious food. Good service, good food and slightly different to all the restaurants by the... More

We found this place whilst wandering around the old town, it's a traditional Greek eatery and in a quaint garden / Courtyard setting. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the menu choice is a mix of Mediterranean and Greek - we chose traditional Greek - Rabbit Stifado and Roast Lamb, both were very good and tasty. The place is worth... More

This is a family run restaurant and each and every member of the family clearly want guests to enjoy themselves. Service is with a smile and their excellent english is handy when asking for advice. In summer, everyone tends to eat in the cool, shady and pretty courtyard. No matter how busy they may be, you are not hurried and... More

We have eaten here for the past 4-5 years and have never been disappointed. It is located in the old part of the city somewhat off the beaten path. When you enter the old city region from the harbor keep to the left at first, go past the busy restaurants and take a right, following the signs. It is a... More

We had dinner at Manolis and we're not disappointed. It is situated in the Old Town, in a delightful Garden setting with lots of flowers and plants including a giant Robinia tree! The food is excellent, cooked in a wood burning oven. The staff are attentive, polite and friendly. Follow Old Lane and will come upon Manolis Garden.

We ate well here, good tasty Greek food complimented by friendly service. The moussaka was very good and so was the fresh seafood. Tables in a rustic, vine-draped courtyard, Highly recommended.

This is one of those places that you have to go because of what and where it is. Manoli has been standing wafting a fan over the hot coals of his bbq as long as I can remember. It is in a unique location so can be quiet and the fare will be traditionally greek. But definitley worth a try....... More
