Excellent choice, the food was incredible. We ordered the grilled octopus as an entry and it was unbelievable. Then, we had the kleftikos which were fabulous. We washed everything down with an amazing local wine, and Spyros gave us complimentary fruit pieces and a fantastic Rika. All in all, a brilliant experience, absolutely recommendable.

We visited this restaurant twice in a week. They will come and pick you up from your hotel but we even walked there!! Spyros is a FANTASTIC host who makes everyone feel like family! The grilled octopus is sensational. We wish we were back there tonight!! Please visit and keep the village of Pano Gouves alive!
