Good food on the beach

We had lunch here, and spent the day on the beach, sunbeds are free for customers, you can order drinks to your sunbed and eat on the deck. Food was good, we had tuna salad, mushrooms and moussaka. Moussaka was excellent! Waiters are very friendly, and the place is very well maintained, clean... read more

When we sat down and received the menu, we were thrilled to read "best of 2014" with the tripadvisor logo. Unfortunately that put my hopes up too high. The rosé wine was good, it is found in almost every bar or resaurant. We ordered fish, sea bass and another, but both were not kooked as supposed to. Although my sea... More

The owner's father was from Petra but he spent time in Australia. He returned to build the restaurant from scratch, investing money to make his family proud. You can order a Greek Pizza, Greek Spaghetti, caprese salad, best olives in town, and delicious feta cheese. The owner loves to greet his guests and makes them feel like family.

We... More

On the deck or in the beautiful taverna you will not be disappointed. Lunch, drinks or evening meal whatever time Costas, Marietta and the waiting staff are more than happy to serve and entertain. The menu is lavish and will not disappoint. Starters range from Greek traditional to garlic bread a good selection. I had Grouper a fish I had... More

We had small dishes of little bit of everything for starters and moussaka and stiffado for main course. Though the restaurant was full the service was very good.

And it really was so nice! Fabulous wine, great food, friendly staff and a view of the sunset. We were then given free panacotta which was so nice. Will definitely be back when we're next in Petra.
