We went on a Greek Music night and the place was packed. However, that didn't mean that there were delays for service - quite the contrary. The welcome from the staff - and the two parrots at the entrance was first class. Everything possible was done to make your dining experience one to remember. The food was very good with... More

We went as a group of 8 and we all had the best meal. Service was great food was tasty and very well presented. We were treated like celebrities staff couldn't do enough just to make sure we had a great meal and experience with the best view of the sea. Would definitely recommend this restaurant

Friendly welcome and very quick service. Lots of choice from menu and reasonably priced. Good choice of fresh fish and seafood on menu. If you don't approve of animals around food there are two parrots on a perch that can wonder round if not watched.

Superb location and a wide selection of good food, I'd recommend Island to anyone visiting Gouves. Maybe a bit pricier than other eateries in the area and it isn't fine dining, but the warm welcome from the staff made it worthwhile. For me, portions were more than adequate and I have a pretty healthy appetite! Overall I thought it was... More
