we stopped in and had the gyro and potatoes after a great day at the beach. Food was a great value and huge portions. Phalix was our waiter andwas friendly and attentive. I suggest you take your time and enjoy the views with a ginger beer.

Chose this for our first lunch in Paleokastritsa and would never want to go back! The setting is idyllic but the food was enough to make your tummy churn even before eating. The calamari was one long fat tentacle (see attached photo) and very undercooked. The Greek salad was overpriced and essentially a bowl of red onion with a chunk... More

We arrived late in the afternoon on a Sunday and it was obvious that the place had been busy. The waiter couldn't make up his mind whether he wanted to serve us or not but when some more people entered it seemed to be worth him getting the cook to do some more food. We had some appetizers to share... More

Very nice restaurant with great view near the wonderful paleokastritsa beach. Very friendly staff even they know we are from Turkey, they cared us a lot. They have and cook delicious sea food. I advise Barbun (red fish), greek salad, ouzo and shrimp. Thanks to the polite owners for the treat icecream free for us. It may be very crowded... More

This place has unmatched views and excellent food. Like any true American, I love pizza and ice cream. So I like to think that I know my pizza pies and ice creams. Vrachos Palaiokastrista's both exceeded my expectations and put a new twist on the Greek style of food for me. I might even prefer how they make it now!... More

This is located on the edge of the sea so the views are beautiful, with fully open areas, to breath in the lovely sea air. They have an extensive menu and although we only stopped for a snack, picking pizza at 4 euros, we expected a slice but got an entire very tasty pizza. Very reasonably priced with efficient, friendly... More

we actually visited the Vrachos cafe almost every day for ice-cream and coffee, and had lunch in the restaurant only once the day before departure. it was unexpectedly delicious. As the terrace has a close sea view we had a minute of happiness feeding fish with pieces of bread

We stopped here on a tour of the island. The restaurant is right on the shoreline and there is a great view of the harbour. The staff were friendly, and the seafood was great but anything else was a bit under par. Members of my group who didn't have the seafood (salads, pizzas, meat dishes) were a bit underwhelmed with...

We had lunch here on our first day to Paleokastritsa. I ordered the Club Sandwich, which I didn't really like because it was served cold and garnished with chips that tasted like those from the supermarket. This was the only downside that I experienced here. Surprisingly, my boyfriend took the Chicken Fillet which was "the best chicken fillet that he... More
