Excellent!

One of my favourite restaurants in Gouves, was made to feel so welcome and Antonio the waiter filleted my fresh fish at the table in front of us. We ate here 3 times during our one week stay in Gouves! On the last night we had a selection of starters to share as we didn't want a big main course,... read more

visited the medusa as it was supposed to be the 2nd best restaurant in the area, staff pleasant but food wasn't cooked properly, sent back + was returned the same! shame as could have been good, not sure if the chef needs changing! but they should lower their prices, was the most expensive meal we had + was the worst!...

Top quality fresh sea bream & sea bass and the home made chips were amazing! This family run Taverna is highly recommended !

Stumbled on this place around from where we were staying, clean friendly, good food and service attentive without being intrusive. We went twice and had chicken and bacon souvlaki (kebabs) and a nice dish of pork, beef and lamb cooked in red wine (tiganiki) both worth a try! Would definitely recommend it and pretty reasonable prices too!

Service friendlyness and food is mediocre compared to nearby taverns and the "greek dining experience". Had to wait a lot for simple dishes in an almost empty restaurant. For me, there are better places around Gouves.

Ate here as people kept recommending it. Not disappointed as the food was great, I had chicken in spinach and creamy cheese, massive portion and with chips as well. Girlfriend had a mixed Greek traditional dish which she also loved. Our greeting by the waiter in a red t shirt wasn't very welcoming, can only assume he had been having... More

Lovely fresh food, great service. We tried many restaurants in Gouves but after finding Medusa we didn't go anywhere else. Definitely recommended!

We had 2 visits to medusa on our recent holiday to Kato gouves. With my husbands favourite starter of feta in filo pastry with honey and sesame seeds it was always going to be a winner. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and knowledgable about the menu and the wine. We both enjoyed our meals on both occasions and... More
