Cheap food.

Two adults, two children, all had main course and drinks. Bill came to under 35 euros. Got watermelon and generous portions of raki as well. Good service but I think I offended the waiter by refusing to take the melon with me!

This was probably our slowest meal of the holiday, the owner was friendly and tried his best despite, like other people have mentioned, his English not being brilliant. But what ruined it for us was at the end when we asked for the bill, then the owner gave a large table behind us a lift home and it seemed the... More

Went here on our first night and the food was lovely. Family run local taverna just down from Cosmi Apts. Unfortunatley we called in on another night to pre order lamb and the owner was a too drunk to take note. Let himself down.

Great place to eat, nice and clean and very efficient. The owner is a character but very friendly and humble. We ate there twice during our stay.

Nice people and staff! Very friendly owner and amazing food. The restaurant in 100 meters from the sea where you can watch a beautiful sunset. The best dinner we had in Gouves, and we ate there twice :)

The service, atmosphere, drinks and location of this taverna are brilliant and we enjoyed them all wonderfully. The food however, for myself was absolutely delicious - superbly cooked and presented beautifully, the same cannot be said for my girlfriends meal which consisted of quite chewy gyros which soon went cold. Overall, a nice experience but we wouldn't order the gyros... More

Philipos makes everyone welcome and adds to this the best food in Gouves! He will make anything you want even if it's not on his mouth watering menu. His food is authentic extremely tasty and generous Greek fayre. You really need to visit this beautiful taverna.
