It's my second visit to Spyros and the service and food was absolutely superb. With their own wine (the Rose was medium dry and pleasent on the palette ) the ambience and setting was salubrious. ..Traditional with a quirky twist. The food is outstanding so fresh and flavoursome. ..I indulge in the special lamb dish with vegetables and potatoes. ..marinated... More

Excellent Greek food and very responsive service. Get the Greek salad and lamb! Seemed like the real deal in terms of authenticity.

Spent 1week in Gouves. Went to the old town on 2 occasions. Both nights were great, Spyros and Debbie really looked after us. It was my friend's birthday on the second evening, a beautiful cake appeared. Love Greek food, will definitely go back, Loved the wine too. Thanks

We went to Spyros for an evening meal whilst staying at the Despo Hotel. We booked via the hotel reception and Spyro sent a taxi to pick us up at a discounted rate to normal. We, as did everybody, received a very warm welcome from Spyro and were immediately made to feel at home. He uses the same patter with... More
