The owner takes time to explain the menu items and is very proud on his restaurant. and his kitchen. It was very pleasant to have a dinner in his restaurant.

We came across this restaurant whilst wandering the maze of tiny streets in Galaxidi. We were initially attracted to it because it looked like a traditional family French restaurant with it's dark wood furniture and pale yellow tablecloths. After reading the positive TA reviews we had to try it and were not disappointed. The owner personally explained all the available... More

A very cosy - traditional Greek bistro, amazing food, very friendly!! You should try the "kelemia" and ask Nikos (the owner) for a glass of tsipouro!! Congrats for the high quality!! If you visit Galaxidi, don't miss Mpempelis!!

My wife and I have lived in Galaxidi for almost 10 years. Dinner or lunch at Bebelis is always a treat. Nikos, the owner, and his wife prepare some of the most interesting and unique Greek dishes in the area and often have something new on the menu to surprise us. Bebelis is a dining experience that's not to be... More

The place is in the street going uphill starting from the corner of the harbor. Really excellent food, very nice atmosphere and charming welcoming. All of that with a very affordable price. The place to go when visiting Galaxidi.

I visited this place on walking in Galaxidi. I saw enough people eating there and only one table with no clients. Its local tastes was really amazing, so it was a great choice for me and my family. We didn't like the dark colors of its decoration, but this is no serious problem. We stay 2 weeks in Galaxidi and... More

After arriving in Athens, and after a lot of research, we were disappointed with the first few restaurants and hoped somewhere during our travels around the mainland we would eventually find 'the special one' ... Well we did O Mpempelis !! Oh the Greek salad and the pork dishes were beautiful we can't wait to go back tonight to taste... More
