As you walk past Dama Dama you might be forgiven for thinking that it isn't as good as some of the restaurants in Pefkos. As the sign says it's a family restaurant & is decorated accordingly, not quite as sleek looking as some of them. On our visit the place looked pretty full, however we were quickly shown to a...

Found this restaurant purely by chance, when having a wonder round. It was full when we went past and so decided to give it a try the next day. We returned and were met by welcoming staff who could not do enough for you. The restaurant feels like you are sharing a Greek family's kitchen/dining room. Comfortable surroundings. The food...

Ate here third night in Pefkos, having been enticed the night before by the menu. And the buzz about the place. I ordered a cheese starter, and was immediately bowled over. It was piping hot, and absolutely delicious. I ordered chicken youvetsi for main, it too was absolutely delicious - and also piping hot, which I came to realise is... More

We have visited this restaurant every time we have been to Pefkos since it opened. The service is excellent as is the food in this family run place. There is a different "special" on every night which will not disappoint. The staff are very attentive, and the food selection is extensive without being too much. To avoid disappointment book in...

Booked a table in Dama Dama for 7 of us. We wanted 9pm but they would only take us at 8pm, said 9pm was too late. The food was just average, my daughters meal was definitely not fresh (tried by 3 different people). The waiter insisted what she ordered was fine, it just wasn't suitable for a 12 year old!... More

We came here on our first night. We were enticed in as It was very busy, looked very nice with lots of lights, pretty plants in the entrance and authentic music. The portions weren't huge and our meals were served in round crockery dishes which suspiciously looked like the food had been microwaved as the food was only warm in... More

This is a little gem of a place to eat, no wonder it was full every night. The food was absolutely fab and the service second to none. The staff were so attentive and friendly, well done xxx

This meal was good but I think in comparison to all the others e ate it pailed into insignificance. I could not say there was anything really wrong with it, very traditional but lacked anything to make it stand out. Having said that the satff were extremely good, very friendly, quick service and when they did not have the sweet... More

Our holiday in Pefkos as usual was made so much better because we dined at Dama Dama restaurant with our friends Tsambikos, Skevros, Eleni,, Michael etc). Being invited to watch Greece v Costa Rica in the world cup at the restaurant after hours was a great privilege and with the family passionate about their football we became Greek football fans...

We ate at this restaurant on one occasion on our recent stay in Pefkos, it’s family run and serves traditional Greek dishes with traditional Greek background music. The food however does not live up to expectations, the Souvlaki (kebabs) are definitely not freshly made and I suspect this restaurant along with many others in the area are buying frozen from...
