Went here after recommendations. It is the oldest restaurant in Pefkos. Food was good, but nothing special. Seems to attract more cats than any other restaurant, which is fine if you don't mind cats like me, but I can see how this might annoy some people. Saving grace was the galaktoboureko (pastry custard pie) which was yummy.

Visited this restaurant 3 times throughout the course of our holiday as the food was so good. Everything is cooked to perfection, my favourite was the beef it melted in your mouth, which was so tasty. The service is friendly and excellent and the atmosphere was really lovely. After trying several other places in the resort, this was definitely our... More

We had a lovely meal here sat in the pretty garden. The food is all homemade and the prices are very good. The staff are lovely and the service was very good. Will definitely go back to the beautiful little taverna.

I really thought I'd be giving this a good review but sadly, I'm not. The setting of this taverna was beautiful and inviting but that's where the delight ended for me as this was the worst meal I had during our week in Pefkos. The waiter left us with the menu and we decided on the fish and seafood plate... More

The starters(spicy local sausage / prawns saganaki) were good and that's the only reason the rating is 'poor' and not 'terrible'. From there the quality of the food declined dramatically....... The whole sea bream was overcooked,dry and tasteless and the chicken souvlaki was tough,chewy and pretty inedible. The accompanying chips were soggy,greasy and had obviously been cooked in fat that... More

Having eaten at Spitaki during two of our previous holidays in Pefkos, it was our first choice to visit during holiday in Pefkos at the beginning of September. The first visit was with my husband's sister and her partner - we were all made very welcome and the staff seemed to remember us from previous visits (if they didn't, they... More

We ate here on our first evening in Pefkos - we timed it just right as we got the last table and others were turned away after us. We only had main courses - I had the moussaka which was a bit greasy, but tasty. My partner had the kokkinisto beef stew. We realised we'd been given a litre karafe... More

We had a really nice meal at the Spitak Taverna, the waiter was very friendly and service ok, my partner loved his Greek sausages, I had a mixed souvlaki which was very nice. we couldn't manage dessert which was a shame but maybe next time, the bill was very reasonable and we look forward to our next visit.

This restaurant was set in lovely grounds with beautiful flowers on the pergolas. The service was swift and very courteous. We didn't have a starter as my husband was going for the mixed grill for one and wanted to make sure he could finish it. I had a lovely chef's salad. The local cats wander in and ou but tdon't...
