Great family restaurant

Eaten here on a number of occasions great food and very friendly service, highly recommend the lamb Kleftico one of the best I have had in over 25 years of traveling to Greece. It gets extremely busy in high season so recommend you make a reservation to guarantee a table.

Having found this taverna on the last night of our holiday to Pefkos in 2013, it was the first on our list to visit in 2014. Much to our disappointment we found it full and had to book for another night. We found the food and wine as good as ever, and the service amazing with very friendly staff. Would... More

We had a dinner there and even Pefcos was half empty by October, DamaDama was full of people. Brilliant service, simple but lovely atmosphere, very authentic Greek! Food was nice and homely…I would 100% recommend!

love the owners who make you feel like family from the minute you step foot in it and the food, but somehow this year it lost a bit of its sparkle and the food wasn't as good as it was last year - it was still very good but just not up to the same standard. Hope next year it... More

Tried to get into this restaurant last year but was fully booked. Thought we would try again in the quiet season. Staff were excellent and very attentive, a very traditional greek taverna .Food was ok, unfortunately for Dama Dama had experienced some excellent meals in Corralli and Hellas the days before and made the whole experience seem average. Not much... More

Great family run restaurant with excellent atmosphere. Food was excellent and consistently good each night we dined there. The repeat business was evident every night with people returning from previous year's visits and receiving a great welcome from staff.

We've been to Pefkos 6 times, but only "discovered" Dama Dama last year. On returning this year, we were delighted that Tsambikos and is family remembered us,and we were given a very warm welcome. We did end up booking, but if you're happy to eat a bit later and don't like to plan, then there are usually empty tables from... More

Passed this restaurant every evening and thought it must be good as it was always full. Then we found out you had to book your table 24 hrs ahead. Having waited for this "delight" i must say our party of 4 was somewhat disappointed. The food was only "average" but the atmosphere was good and during the evening the waiters... More
