AVOID AT ALL COSTS

My son and I were encouraged into The Gate and ordered two cans of Fanta Orange drink. I went to the WC and noticed that the taverna inside was very dirty so we didn't order any food. Two huge glasses of ice and watered down orange arrived. We were asked for 10 Euros which was excessive. The staff looked very... More

Worst meal we had during whole stay - very pricy too and felt we were ripped off - especially after seeing prices for same meal in other establishments. The staff could not have cared less - were only interested in getting customers in and then they were sat at a table drinking and smoking and only came and looked after... More

We called in here for a cool drink in the morning, we ordered a fresh orange juice and a cola. 12.90 euro, I was flabbergasted. Everywhere else on the way in was advertising fresh orange at 2 euro, they charged me 7.90 euro and 5 euro for the cola. My mistake i did not look at the drinks list first.... More

Expensive and unclear on prices, No idea how much the massive drinks were until the bill arrived. A large beer was 16 euro and contained 4 pints, which is ridiculous in a hot country when you want a cold beer. By the time you are a few mouthfuls in, its warm. It's a gimmick and a rip off......

We made the unfortunate decision to sit down at this place, ordered 2 Cokes, which was probably 80% water and some coke on top for colour, spaghetti bolognese and another dish with some blend meatballs with chips. Was shocked when we got the bill for 34 Euro. The staff were obnoxious and just plain rude. After about 30 visited restaurants... More

30 euros for 2 ice coffees and 2 baklavas? We challenged the price and were told it was because we had ice cream with both of them - something we hadn't asked for. Avoid this place then walk away from the main drag and enjoy better service, better food and better coffee (decidedly mediocre here) for a fraction of the... More

Only had drinks here - ordered a medium beer, two lemonades and a slush puppy. The medium beer came in a Wellington boot shaped glass with '1.56 li' on it - no way this is a medium beer. All very amusing etc., but far too much for mid afternoon. The bill came to 26 euros - ridiculous. A tip for... More
