The filleting 'show' at the table when the fish arrived was entertaining with the meal absolutely fantastic. The experience encouraged us back for our last... More

We have just stayed at the Island hotel in gouves which was really great. We also ate in Medusa twice throughout the week even though we were half board. Excellent food, wine and service. Would highly recommend. :)

From starter to sweet the food was excellent, I had red snapper which was filleted by Antonio at the table &... More

Traditional Greek cuisine, very friendly staff. Great atmosphere. The food was so good we are there quite a few times whilst on holiday. We were a party of 8 and were always welcomed with a warm smile.

We loved Medusa and ate here twice in our week in Kato Gouves. Great quality food and fabulous service. There are lots of good choice restaurants in Kato Gouves, but personally this one just stole the crown.
