We have not visited Pefkos for 4 years and were joking as we approached Dama Dama saying off course they will say they remember us. Well they did! Tsambikos greeted us like old friends and said when you were last here you had your son with you which was correct. He then said we had a picture on the... read more

We went here as my wife had heard good things about this restaurant and indeed the first time we went there it was fully booked. We tried again the next night and they gave us the last free table and all seemed well. The staff were very friendly and they took our drinks order and delivered these relatively quickly however...

Dama Dama, Is what a Greek restaurant is all about. If you're staying in pefkos then it's a must, from the great food to the friendliness of tsabikos and family can't wait to see you all next year.

A friend recommended this restaurant and the first time we visited we had the last table which hadn't been pre-booked. We enjoyed it so much we booked to come again the following week. Each time, they were continually turning people away who had not booked which means a lot. On both occasions, we had traditional Greek meals, moussaka, lamb kleftiko... More

If you go to pefkos this is a fantastic family run restaurant you must try out. The staff are very friendly and the food is excellent, we found this place and ended up going nearly every night as it was so good. The only thing is that it's so popular that you need to book a table as they only... More

After visiting Pefkos several times and hearing lots of great reviews and recommendations about dama dama, we booked for our family and friends.. A group of 14.. At first atmosphere and surroundings were great, really warm and inviting with traditional music.. When we ordered our starters they all came separate and when they arrived were nothing special. Then our mains... More

You need to book the night before. Family run restaurant. Meals are lovely and well presented and expect to pay a little more than the other restaurants.

After being greeted and seated at this great restaurant we were shown the special for that night which was a family receipe of meatballs with the trimmings. These were the best we have ever tasted. All the food we had each visit was wonderful and would definately recommend. You have to book a table before hand but worth doing. Again... More

Lovely typical Greek family restaurant. Host greeted all customers and personally took your orders while mum and dad done the cooking. Food and setting excellent, all staff very friendly. We were recommended the lamb shank and was not at all disappointed. We were lucky to get a table as hadn't booked and they are very busy so would highly recommend... More
