Family-run place. It was easy to select the food by pointing with finger to food behind the window. Quite much oil used but really tasty and large portions and real choice of Creatan food. Almost in the end of season, so very few people around and kind of autumnal feeling. Smoking is allowed in the terrace but fortunately no smokers... More

Above average food but the evening spoiled by the owners allowing people to smoke and smoking themselves while talking to their customers. I won't be back.

Visited during a huge thunder storm late October, but the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Incredibly tasty pork chops (actually pork belly) and amazing chips flavoured with herbs (it works!). As other reviews have said, the special salad has a great flavour (though I suspect high in sugar). Also agree that the house red wine is excellent and that the... More

What more can I say?! We thoroughly enjoyed our food on the two occasions we ate here during a recent 2 week stay in Paleochora. Good choice of dishes and beautifully cooked and presented. I know you can get oven roasted lamb with potatoes just about anywhere in Greece, but here it was perfection. To top it off, the restaurant... More

The food was delicious (lovely starters, followed by mixed grill and oven-cooked pork), the house red good and the waiters helpful. Complimentary desserts and raki also served at the end of the meal.

We went here on our 3rd night and the service was great in comparison to the other places we went to. It still has an authentic greek feeling though. We especially enjoyed our starters (assortiment of pies and cheese Balls) but also the main course was great . Only downside was that people in greece still smoke a lot, so... More

Nothing to dislike about Methexis, the food was beautifully cooked and the house salad has a lovely flavour. View is romantic & airy overlooking the sea. Can't wait to go back! Even the Raki is smoother than most. House wine is delicious. Loved it & the waiters are very friendly & attentive.

After reading many positive reviews about this restaurant we had a lot of expectations. But we were badly disappointed. Our table was located outdoors on backyard. There was one (street) lamp at a height of about ten meters giving light to the whole area. No mention of any atmosphere. Food was average. Waiters were too busy, our waiter started to... More
