Amazing View!

The restaurant is a must if you are in the area as the view is second to none. The staff are very attentive and friendly. The food was nice and plenty to choose from. We didn't find the wait times too long, but the view made up for it. A little more expensive than other places but again, it's... read more

Having arrived in Gouves and encountered a very rude receptionist at our hotel, we were glad of our welcome at this remarkable restaurant. All the staff are friendly, the food to die for, and the bread simply divine. We returned here many nights throughout our stay-always to the same high quality food and warm welcome. Food may be a bit... More

Amazing location, can watch the sunset whilst eating. Food is lovely but staff let it down as they are very arrogant. There are much nicer environments to eat in locally!

A fantastic restaurant with amazing food, scenery and staff, can't recommend enough if you're in Gouves. The portions are enormous though so I'd recommends just the one course. Went twice during our weeks holiday, the fish and paella were both amazing as were the cocktails that followed. Leave your diet at the door and enjoy....

This Restaurant overlooks the sea & is beautifully presented . Staff attentive & friendly. Food well presented & tasty . Just popped in for a late lunch one day ...the only issue I have is that the drinks are way more expensive than other places in the area so those on a budget take heed .I can't fault food setting...

Fantastic location and great food. We had a wedding anniversary meal here for 6 - steaks are superb as is the at table cooking. Slightly more expensive than some other local restaurants but still excellent value for money. Pre book a table outside at sun set and you will not be disappointed.

Visited this restaurant last night for our first wedding anniversary as this was highly recommended by local bar waitress and read reviews on trip advisor. I have to say the views are fantastic but unfortunately I cannot say the same about the food. We ordered chateaubriand and asked for medium rare, this dish did look beautiful on arrival but was...

We ate here a few times on a week long visit to Kato Gouves. The choice of food was extensive with Greek and European dishes on offer at reasonable rates. Sit outside on the little headland jutting out to sea and watch the sunset while listening to the waves. Wide selection of drinks also, served by the excellent staff.
