If you are staying at the Island hotel and fancy a nice, relaxing atmosphere, with very tasty Greek food, good value for money drinks and hosts that would make you feel so welcome then this is the place for you to visit. We both tried lots of different dishes and non of them were of poor quality and certainly tasted... More

Only regret is that we did not eat here more often, great staff in this family run Taverna just opposite our hotel. Food well prepared and presented. Drinks reasonably priced. Overall a good experience and a must try. One piece of advice, be prepared for large portions. What more can we say. Thank you George.

I agree with a previous review, this taverna is the best in Gouves. The food is excellent, the drinks are excellent and George, Effi and their staff are fantastic. This was our second visit to Gouves and George recognised us the minute we walked out of the hotel doors. We were welcomed back like long lost friends and that's the... More

Quite simply one of the finest Taverna in Gouves. George (and his hats) is an absolute gem of a host. Food is fresh and cooked well and the cost is extremely competitive. We ate here a couple of times and no complaints, the Greek night is fantastic and even had these old bones busting some moves!!! The staff are great... More

Spacious due to a good sized outside area. Comprehensive menu. Particularly liked the Schntzel al la creme. George and his team are friendly. The highlight is a Cretan music and dance night, well worth watching if not joining in.
