George and the staff were genuinely warm and friendly and could not have been kinder to us. We felt like we were friends by the time we left. You must eat here,... More

Just got from Gouves this morning and had an amazing holiday, met some wonderful people who we now call our friends, especially at George's, what a lovely family so welcoming and hospitable. When we found George's we spent nearly every night of our 3 week stay here, such nice people sat outside in the comfy chairs watching the world go... More

We both had the swordfish on our first visit which was really tasty and the grilled octopus starter was... More
