He had the best fried zucchini of Greece, at Simos Taverna! Wonderful food and a wonderful baklava for desert!! The food was so good that we went back a few times. The waiter could speak a little Portuguese and was very friendly! The place is nice and has a wonderful tree in the restaurant space that was built around it.... More

Simos Taverna has good food and something for everyone. The menu, in Greek, English, German and Italian (and available in Chinese), has Greek, German, Italian and American dishes. They aim to please. The warm fireplaces were a welcome relief from the cold. When they brought the check, the waitress also brought a Greek dessert.

I walked a few miles through the town to find some good restaurants to eat, unfortunately nothing was open. Fortunately, we stumbled upon this Tavern which looked packed with people and full of life. It was a great atmosphere to be with lots of people, compared to the otherwise empty town. The food was delicious and satisfying and the staff... More

We were told to try this place and were glad we did. The food and service was great. It has all the classic Greek dishes and the staff treats you well with what we found to be traditional Greek hospitality.

Sometimes when you visit a restaurant you remember the hospitality more than the food. It was one such moment for us at this place. Our waiter Vasilis was very friendly and an adept at humoring the guests with his warm and friendly banter. The food was served hot and the service was excellent. Fava was one of the best we...

Ate here during low season, and I would compare the experience to that of a pub meal in Australia - not fancy, but fills the hunger gap. The lady that served us was fantastic, attentive and full of advice, and Milly the house cat wandering around makes it feel like your home. My partner had the moussaka and would recommend... More

We went here the first night when we arrived, as suggested by Michael at Dana Villas. It is a cozy restaurant, with real big trees inside the restaurant (check it out they are not fake trees and the restaurant wall was built around them! They have a good menu, excellent Greek food, reasonable price and excellent service.
