Nice quiet, out of the way little restaurant, traditional Greek food, tasted amazing, nice company, the owner was lovely, very welcoming and friendly. I have dietary requirements and he understood and adapted to everything. 5 star everything. We got a lift from our hotel door to the restaurant and back from a lady who worked there. Great service :)

We spent our penultimate night here. Great to be picked up by Debbie. Then greeted by such a friendly waitress, who is the first vegetarian Greek we have met and offered menu recommendations.

Wonderful taverna in the old original Gouves village. Spyros will send a car to your hotel and also run you home after your superb meal. This a a very traditional village taverna, and not really a touristy type place - but is all the better for that. Make sure you visit when you are in the area.

This is THE place to go for a beautiful romantic meal. We were picked up by Despyna from the restaurant and our mouths just gaped when we saw it for the first time. It's stunning. The church next door is beautiful too. Recommended dish is a rabbit stifado. Being vegetarian, I didn't try it, but a friend did and thought... More

Get away from the tourist Restaurants and Taverna's and go to a traditional Greek Taverna for experience you will never forget! The food is the best, cooked with fresh meats, fish & produce. Spyros prides himself on quality and giving customer satisfaction. Entertainment value is 100% whatever your nationality.

Friendly, family-run place with fresh homemade food. What else could you really ask for? It's only about 5 minutes from the main road. I wish we had more places like this in California...
