I said this year that on the first night of the holiday we wouldn't stop at the first restaurant we came to, but we did, and we were not disappointed! Great little taverna set just off the main beach road. Excellent quality of food, great value for money! The baklava dessert was the biggest slice I have ever had -... More

Went purely based on Trip advisor reviews. Was very average, nothing wrong but left thinking why did we bother. Frozen pizza & chewy pork gyros.

If you choose not to travel into the bigger areas, Phillipo's is a wonderful choice! The owner Phillipo is friendly and very accommodating. My son asked for chocolate milk, and he, the owner, actually went to the market down the road, just so my son could have it (even after us protesting, "no, you don't have to do that!!") -... More

If you only visit one place this has to be it! Year after year the service, food and atmosphere are second to none. Philipo and Matilda do a wonderful job, love it!

Great food, friendly people. They helped us with everything besides food :) You can have breakfast, delicious dinner or you can stop by just for an ice coffee... Highly recommended!

Love this little taverna. It's not too big, the food is tasty, vegetarian particularly good, fried courgettes, tasty lamb cutlets, real potato fries. Great breakfast too, enjoy the atmosphere. Phillipa is a little angel and it's a pleasure to know him. Don't be in a hurry here, sit back and relax and enjoy the food and the banter.
