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

This place is clearly trying to distinguish itself. They proprietor is not Greek and she is trying to make a growing business out of it. A couple of books on Greek cooking, demonstrations of bread making and soap production (!) on certain evenings, a table of restaurant souvenirs to pass as you leave, and so on. The food is undoubtedly... More

Some inaccuracies answered by the owner of Yesterday & Today, Voula Kyriakea • I am Greek and I have the good fortune to be from Mani, an area endless interest and incredible beauty. • I personally am the author of the two books, one of 90 Mani recipes cooked with olive oil, considered to be the gold of our area,...

It's a pity the service and attitude are so poor as the location and the set up is good. The food is average to good and has the advantage of being a little less formulaically Greek as nearly all the other restaurants in Stoupa. However a wait of well over an hour for an artichoke omelette and oven cooked fish... More

A few years ago this restaurant had the most terrible service. I have literally been there almost an hour without anyone even taking our drinks order. I don't want fast food, but I like to feel that someone knows I'm here, will bring me a jug of water and take my order within a few minutes of arriving. I was... More

Food was ok but service was a bit slow as staff spent more time talking to Greeks than serving us, but would give it another go

We've been coming to Stoupa and to Voula's restaurant Yesterday and Today for many years and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent with wonderful creative specials. Voula prides herself in her cooking and her love of the Mani and all its ways and customs and this shows in every way. Service is friendly, laid back but attentive. This... More
