Mix of Greek dishes in a great taverna

Kalispera Simos, ti kanis ? I came in april and in june of 2014. You feel at home and they serve great dishes at reasonable prices. Its outside town but worth it (price and food quality).

It was full while other places were empty. The food is nice and traditional, although not exactly to our taste. It is also very nice suggestion for windy and cold weather - inside you feel yourself like in the garden but the wind and cold do not bother you. People are friendly and smiling, very nice service.

Becuase our visit was in the off-season, our dining choices were quite limited. Our hotel directed us to Simos, and we ended up eating there 3 or our 4 nights. The food was quite good, very homestyle, but tasty. The owner served us each night and sometimes seemed like she could have used an extra hand. One thing to be... More

We were jet lagged, took a nap and woke up late and were hungry. We found this lovely spot open. Loved the ficus trees growing inside. The food was yummy and our waiter "William" and Alexander were very nice.

We had a selection of appetizers and all of them really hit the mark. All of the staff were really friendly, and we wished we had time to go back. If we lived nearby, this would definitely be our regular haunt!

We ordered the grilled seafood plater for my wife and I for dinner, it was so delicious!! The service was good, since we had dinner on the garden area, and it was pretty windy at that time, they gave my wife a scarf to warm her body. Just fyi, They only take cash!

My husband and I chose to have dinner at this restaurant based on the terrific reviews of this restaurant. We started out with a Greek salad which was okay. When we asked for butter for our bread, the waiter said they didn't have any. Only when prompted, did he say he could bring us oil to dip the bread in.... More

The first time we stopped at the Simos Taverna it had been raining and the restaurant was full we had no reservation. The waiter took us to the rear of the restaurant and gave us wine on the house while we waited for a table. the service was swift, we love the presentation of all the starters brought out on...
