Fantastic Evening

We went as a large group for the Greek night and it proved to be a fantastic night. The food was plentiful with a series of Meze dishes which were all very tasty. The setting is gorgeous by the beach and ideal for watching the sun going down and the stars coming out. The greek dancing manages to... read more

We went to this taverna three times because it was close to our villa (Birds Bay). They serve the traditional Greek cuisine of a good quality. Prices are low, location is lovely just on the beach. On Mondays they organize a Greek night with traditional dance. My kids still feel this was the best night of our holiday.

We were a mixed age group from 4-54, had a wonderful evening. The food was traditional, very tasty and varied. Fabulous service with a smile and encouraged everyone to join in with the dancing ( but not pushy if you don't want to) We were asked if we would like to try anything different to the already plentiful meze and...

This is a fantastic restaurant located on the beach just outside Petra. If you ask for Meze you will get a lot of plates with small dishes of delicious Greek food! On one night there was too much noise for us due to a "Greek Evening". They served our dinner at a private table at the end of the pier... More
