We stayed in Gouves for 11 nights in June 2015 and for probably 10 of the days we visited the Island Restaurant. Having been at the same time last year, it was great to see some familiar faces. We were welcomed like old friends and enjoyed the company of the very friendly staff, none more so than the lovely Maria... More

After arriving in Gouves and a quick change we headed out to find somewhere to eat. Still a little weary and 'spaced out' from the plane journey we perused the menu outside of The Island. We were then greeted by the bubbly Kastro, who, with his energy and fun personality welcomed us into the restaurant. The atmosphere was relaxed and... More

They claim that this is the best Restaurant in Gouves. We didn't try them all, so we can't agree or disagree, but we can say that it is in probably the best location, with a beautiful view over the sea, a prime spot for watching the sun set, the food was out of this world, and they have two beautiful...

My boyfriend and I visited the Island Hotel - right next to Island Restaurant last week. We're both 19 years old and wanted to go out for nice cocktails at night time. We were half board so also needed lunch from places. We went for a walk along the coast to look at the tavernas, the Island Restaurant greeted us... More

Good view, you can sit outside overlooking the beach or rocks & we watched the beautiful sunset the evening we ate here. Friendly service, lovely plentiful food. I would recommend.

I did not add the names of the excellent friendly smiling staff who made our holiday more than just a holiday. They made us feel at home. Ted the restaurateur had no problem supplying us with more garlic. Maria's early morning and evening greeting to the restaurant never failed to make us smile. Margarita in Tholos bar made us feel...

We visited the Island Restaurant in May 2015. Whilst out walking we asked to see the menu and were told by one of the waiters that they were having a "Greek Night" a couple of days later, we were told we would have to book a table and was asked to chose one which we did. A deposit was paid.... More

Very nice meal with good service . Mixed fish and meal main courses taken which were both fine. Good seafront location. Slightly more expensive than other local tavernas.
