A taverna with a more refined menu

As the taverna's name indicates, the 'yesterday' recipes are traditional old favourites and 'today' recipes are a more modern twist. Voula also teaches cookery, bread making and even writes books with her own recipes.

Overlooking the main bay of Stoupa, the location is outstanding and the food was always great. Unfortunately the service is so poor that it does spoil the whole experience.

Food is slightly different to Stoupa's other offerings but very good as is service. Great location for views over the bay.

We came back to the restaurant as it had been one of our favourites on a previous visit as there was such a good vegetarian choice, over and above the usual menu selection. Unfortunately it let us down badly this time, the english lady who took our order initially was excellent, but the service after that was hopeless. It took... More

I really enjoyed eating here on last years holiday so we pre-booked a table for Voula's 9pm Wednesday eve Village bread making talk/demo when we had our Sunvil Rep welcome meeting there a few days previously - Voula also made an appearance then and spoke about her passion for the local way of life: a very interesting Lady.

This place has got to be seen to be believed! The views of the sunset are superb and the combination of flavours in the dishes offered is unbelievable. The staff are so warm and friendly. Portion sizes are enormous and we still haven't learned we can't manage a starter as well as complimentary grandmother pies and our main meal and... More

Two things make Voula's restaurant different and special: The amazing view on Stoupa bay and the more refined Greek cuisine. Her Mani specialities are a bit different to the average (still mostly very good) offer of the local restaurants, with different herbs and spices. Very pleasant and enjoyable. Julia and her colleagues take good care of the guests. Recommended!

Go to Yesterday and Today and get served........... tomorrow. This restaurant bears all the hallmarks of a place that knows it has unique attractions and has become horrible complacent about it. The view is spectacular, the food is different and specialist, and the story of the place and Voula the owner, also sets it apart. But, the service is hopeless.... More

Another excellent meal here. You will get a good meal at many Stoupa restaurants, but this one is a cut above. Voula is the owner, and she is Greek - don't understand one of the previous comments that she is not. She loves the region, and her passion for it and for the food is obvious. The 'front of house'...

This was our second visit to Stoupa. We were looking forward to eating at Yesterday and Today as on our first visit we had a good meal. On this occasion however it took around 30 mins to have our first course served. After an hour and ten minutes we had still not been served our main course. I brought this... More
