We accidentally found this place and wasn't expecting it to be round the back-street. My map on my phone showed it somewhere completely different, so was glad to find it, next to Medusas as well, which also has a good write up. Anyway, called in one lunch time after reading all the rave reviews. Place was clean and the staff... More

the staff are so welcoming and friendly, the food and drinks are excellent freshly cooked and very cheap. the portion size and presentation was very good. one thing I found incredibly amazing was the staff even though it must be tough economic times and they really deserved it was when we gave them a 5 euro tip they tried to...

We were staying across the street at The Island hotel. George's Taverna was perfectly convenient for our first night out. We were thrilled to find the staff so friendly and the food so delicious! George and his crazy hats added a bit of fun to the night. We made a point of going back before we left. We absolutely recommend... More

Great taverna....George 1 and 2 along with Michael looked after us on our week long stay, we were staying at The Island but drank in this taverna each night. Ate lunch couple of times and the food was excellent and plentiful. Great service from this happy family run taverna. Will definitely be back...

Love this place. The food and drink is top class and George, his lovely wife and Mike were so welcoming. In fourteen days we only missed one night. Great place for people watching.

We ate here three times during a recent holiday. Both food and service are excellent, portion on the large size for me but they were happy to let us share a main course. Great value for money. The menu is probably the same as in most of the local restaurants, everything we had was fantastic and whether it was a... More

The food in here is so good, we went about 5 times in the 2 weeks we were there, the moussaka is especially good. The portions are very generous too. Great staff too.

Great food, great people. Stayed at The Island Hotel and ate lunch at Georges' most days. Cool, laid back and a great place to learn how to speak basic Greek. Efharisto George!
