Visited here because of the reviews and was extremely disappointed to say the least. The welcome was poor, lazy and uninviting. Food was tasteless, cold and very overpriced. Village was lovely but the decor in this taverna was over bearing and I was not impressed with all the chalk boards stating to tell everyone if we had had a good... More

We went to Spyros Taverna 3 times during out week stay in Gouves. It is situated in a little village not disturbed by tourism, and the food is delicious. Spyros himself is lovely, and offers a pick up and drop off service for people that book. Would definitely recommend. Food was delicious and homemade rolls and olive oil with olives... More

My wife and I had been recommended to go to this restaurant by another couple whilst sat around the pool at The Island Hotel. The lovely owners will come and pick you up from the door and take you away to their welcoming restaurant. From the moment we got there we were made to feel very welcome and straight away... More

Excellent food, impressive selection, extremely friendly people. Very reasonable prices, especially compared to seaside restaurants. If you will live of pass by Gouves - don't miss this opportunity to enjoy the real Greek food. Отличная еда, большой выбор, очень дружелюбные люди, очень разумные цены, особенно в сравнении с приморскими ресторанами. Если вы будете жить или проезжать мимо Gouves. не упустите... More
