Nice Taverna

We went here twice during our week in Skala and it was a hidden gem, quite easily to overlook it but its a must for our next holiday. The staff are friendly and the food is very very good, the prices are good, one tip is to book it can get very busy.

My wife and I have been coming to Skala for some years and have dined at virtually every restaurant in the resort at one time or another. For the last few years we have dined exclusively here. Every one of our fourteen nights we ate here. It is a traditional taverna serving traditional dishes and grilled meat. It is NOT... More

After several visits over the last 3 years, despite previous excellent food and service this year found it disappointing, 4 of us reserved a table and booked the lemon chicken special. After we were seated we were then left waiting over 30 mins before even our drinks order was taken then kept waiting for our food, when it arrived it... More

We first discovered Gourgouris Grill back in 2006 and have eaten here every time we have visited Skala ( 6 times now) never once disappointed. Afroditi and the rest of the team make you feel so welcome and the food is amazing. We have tried most of the starters and mains, the Mousaka being the best we have ever tasted.... More

Visited twice in Sept 2014. Been many times before. Up to its high standard and excellent vfm. Usually have the gyros as they are the 'tops'. 2 gyros, plate of fries and half caraffe red about 10 euros. Plentiful menu. Tip - reserve a table. Enjoy!

We ate in almost all the restaurants in Skala, but Gourgouris Grill was absolutely my number one!!!!!! The best food ever ate and probably teh cheapest one! A very nice little porch, all wooden with lots of old farm equipments, I liked the feeling of the place! Kind of familiar management, not as 'precise and polite' as the other restaurants,... More

After eating here for many years I'm finally sharing our secret of the BEST gyros in skala. The price is so reasonable and the welcome is first class. Run by husband and wife, they deliver constantly excellent meals. The Greek salads and Greek pizza are fantastic as well as the cheese saganaki, hum as and garlic pita. Try this place... More

Looks aren't everything and you could easily walk past Gourgouris, it doesn't shout out and the menu is simple. It's only got about forty covers and the decor is at best rustic, but don't let it put you off. Indeed on the several times whilst eating we sat and watched people peruse the menu then walk away and I wanted... More

When we visited we ordered the meat meze for two people. We were so glad we didn't order a starter, because the meze was huge! It was really tasty and had a good selection of meat, salad, pitta bread etc... The service was friendly, the rose wine was very drinkable & the bill was extremely reasonable. We visited twice during... More
