Amazing View

The restaurant is on the beachfront with amazing view. The portions are large and the food is really tasty. The serving is professional, but quite friendly as well. You pay a 20-25% extra compared to the tavernas in the vicinity, but you should definitely spend a dinner in the sunset here, it is... read more

We went for lunch, the restaurant was quiet so were seated straight away. The waiter was cold and disinterested, left us with menus and took a drinks order, about 15 minutes later we got our drinks and he took our order. The food was nice enough, nothing special but tasty. The view is fantastic, right at the edge of the... More

Lovely views , bit on the expensive side though. I wouldn't eat there again as I didn't rate the food for the price , but lovely for a drink while the sun sets

We visited this restaurant a few times occasionally for a drink but on our last day for a meal. The setting right on the cliff top overlooking the sea is amazing & so was the food. We we're treated to a dessert & a liquor they were such lovely people. So recommend this restaurant .

Got the menu quick enough, Then took ages to come back ordered food, just took for ages, Not very friendly compared to what else is around... More

We visited the island restaurant 3 times during our 1 week stay in Gouves! The cocktails are amazing and the food is excellent as well. We visited for my boyfriends birthday and the staff did everything they could to make the evening special. We had the chef cook our dinner I front of us at the table which was an... More

We ate there twice as the food was good and the view outstanding. The children's menu is quite good two of ours had adult meals which are a little bit too big. Our food took ages to arrive which was well over an hour so don't go there if you are very hungry

Good service, good food, good value, great location. Visited the Island twice during my stay in Gouves. The first time for lunch and for dinner on the second visit. Good selection of dishes and very generous portions followed by plenty of complimentary Raki !! Make sure you have a very large appetite if you order both starter and main course.

Had two visits here. The first was really just to try their ice creams and milk shakes...delicious. The second trip we had a meal. The food was delicious and not just seafood on the menu. The complimentary raki went down well. Lovely staff, well worth a visit.
