Well worth a visit

We visited this Taverna a few times during our stay in Gouves. The owners and staff were very friendly and welcoming with a lovely sense of humour. The food was excellent, also tried some of their lovely cocktails. Would recommend a visit here if you are in the area.

This taverna has good food, good atmosphere and friendly staff. George is entertaining, however do be careful if you when they're busy with large groups as although there isn't a problem with food service, once the large group or groups have gone, you may well be kept waiting for your bill so that any passing trade will think the restaurant...

Came to Gouves last year with my daughter and visited George's taverna for dinner on the first night, came back every night after too! This year I visited with my Mum and ended up coming every night too. George, Effy and everyone else work so hard to welcome you in and ensure you have a wonderful time while dining. The... More

We stayed for a week in Gouves and returned to this restaurant numerous times. Really welcoming, made us feel at home - was sad to leave them. Food was lovely and they were more than helpful in catering for a vegan. Yamas!

We had drinks in George's on a few occasions and the drinks were fine. We had one meal and the service was poor. We waited to have our food order to be taken, only for customers to arrive after us and have their orders taken first. When we received the food the chicken was very dry and my meal wasn't... More

Seven of us ate here one evening. Six of the meals were fine but the other meal had a piece of chicken souvlaki still cold and raw in the middle..To be fair they apologised profusely and took it off the bill and apart from this the rest of food and drink was of a good standard.

We arrived at the hotel the opposite Georges too late for dinner. Georges provided us with a good late meal and drinks at good value to plug the gap. We also visited later in the week for drinks, again good value and friendly. Just one thing it was cash only.
