Went to The Island Restaurant for an excellent late breakfast/early lunch at the start of our stay in Gouves. Great position, and although it was windy when we visited, the plastic blinds give adequate protection but don't spoil the view. We ordered a Special omelette and a Mushroom omelette which were large and packed full of filling. They were accompanied... More

We visited the Island Restaurant on several occasions for morning coffee. The location is absolutely the best and it was a real pleasure to sit and enjoy the view. The added bonus was that the staff were very friendly and the coffee was the best we had during our 2 week holiday. We are only sorry that we didn't have... More

Really friendly staff and excellent food. Overlooking sea, on the night we went they had live enterainment which was a bonus. Not the cheapest place but well worth the cost.

We have been to this restaurant many times. The food is always well cooked, the service really quick, the staff and owner very friendly. The view to the sea.... Wonderful. Kids enjoy playing in the playground and of course eating delicious ice cream and waffles. I absolutely recommend this place. Unfortunately it closes during winter and opens again in summer.
