We met up with friends a couple of times at Georges and both times it was fun and friendly. Guests are welcome to try on any one of his large hat collection whilst eating or drinking. The wide variety of cocktails are among the tastiest and cheapest we found in the area; other bars were charging twice the price!

We both had a lovely meal of souvlaki and moussaka at this lovely little taverna on the corner. It's a lively little place and George is a lovely guy that obviously takes a lot of pride in his food and business. The portions are massive and we had a little break in the middle of eating to have a glass... More

Went here a couple of times for lunch as we were staying at a hotel across the road. Good selection of food and nice atmosphere but it was the only bar/restaurant which did not give its customers a freebie snack and/or shot of raki before leaving

Nice bread and garlic butter. Pork steak had small bones in and would be undercooked for most people. Pizza was a bit bland and overly cheesy. Still enjoyed and returned.

Very cheap for food and drink. Food was nice. Staff treated you like friends. Even if you just walked past they would call out and wave. Definitely recommend it.

George and his wife make everyone feel very welcome, lovely people. Food was excellent and if you like cocktails then you must try George's Special! If we ever go to Gouves again this is the place we'll head to first!

A must try is the keleftico. It's to die for. The staff are nice and friendly, do not rush you and always offer free sweets. A must try if your ever in gouves.
