The quality and selection of food at a great price together with terrific local wine, meant tata we went back there many times. Family run with two brothers waiting on guests, it was friendly and a great place to eat.

We are staying in Gouves for a week- this is our 4th night and already our second visit here! The portions are large and delicious, the service is attentive and very good and the atmosphere is welcoming and chilled out. They also give you free watermelon and raki after the meal and don't try and add on any hidden charges... More
