Very good food and nice wine in Ariston. It is also very good value, like in most of the restaurants in Agia Galini but this is one of the nicest places to enjoy the food.

Excellent quality food in a taverna on the main taverna street in Agia Galini. The atmosphere was relaxed and the food was most definitely of a high standard. We shall certainly be visiting again one day.

Nice environment - nice menu card with a lot of tasty dishes - view in the kitchen - superfriendly service. This could be your daily restaurant and you won't regret it.

I had an extremely good oven cooked veal dish, my wife described hers as fairly average. The waitress was friendly but not very good at the fake charm seen elsewhere. On our visit it was very quiet and therefore lacked atmosphere but I would be happy enough to go back again. It is in the main pedestrian street between Onar... More

As vegetarians our choice is normally limited, but the family at this restaurant provided us with local vegetarian dishes. Please don't order the tourist food...try something new!! This is a fantastic restaurant! We came back two nights in a row and chatted to the amazingly awesome mother of the owner - Helen - an 80 year old warm hearted, funny... More

One of the many restaurants on 'bar street', but far superior! Food is traditional, tasty and well priced. Service is friendly and relaxed - you might even get a free Greek lesson!! Highly recommended!

Whenever we go to Agia Galini, we always go to see Ari and his family, for his lovely food, the great atmosphere and also to see his lovely family. I would thoroughly recommend. My particular favourites are the chicken wings with soy sauce for the starter and the lamb chops for the main!!! Beautiful!!!

Great fresh food, big plates full as well! Time for us to go on a diet after all the delicious home cooked Greek meals we had in this welcoming restaurant, runned by a lovely Greek family. Very welcoming and atentive atmosphere. Recommendation: grilled pork with honey sauce and the saganaki shrimps. Enjoy!
