We have been here almost every day during our 7 nights stay, which shows how incredible George's place is. It is a family run tavern, where George is a superb host with his daughter, while his wife is making the best meals I've eaten in Greece. :) The atmosphere is very friendly, the service is fast and flexible, we will...

We've had dinner at this wonderful place three times in the last seven days and each one was very good. Exceptionally (but not overly) friendly and polite staff and the best gyros in the neighborhood. Greetings from Hungary, köszönöm!

The food is quite good, we were a large group and the food all came out at the same time which was good as we were able to eat together. George is really good fun and interacts with every one, he has a great 'hat' collection worth a visit for the entertainment

tried this little gem on our 3rd day in Gouves, and wish we went sooner. George, his family and staff were so welcoming and with his collection of hats ( and shirts) george kept our group of 4 entertained. His lovely daughter teaching us greek dancing was certainly a highlight we won't forget. The food was lovely and plentiful, and... More

Had dinner here the other day service was good and the place very clean. The food was ok and somewhere I would go for a bite to eat again but lunch not for a dinner as felt a bit run of the mill and would prefer a more restaurant delivery with more tradition

What a great taverna, family run and helpings are oh so generous. I have never seen such huge T bone steaks and as for the Greek dishes wow. Whatever you order the 'house' gives you more, fresh fruit, pannacotta and ouzo to finish. We loved it and of course George and his family. Staff stay until about 11pm but George... More
