I can't recommend it less! I went there for dinner, for a pasta dish. I asked the lady about Chicken Alberto pasta, and she gladly explained it to me what it consisted of. I ordered that, and it was simply delicious, besides me not being a fan of pepper in my food. She past by later, and made sure I... More

Having read good comments about this place, we visited it in august 2014. I ordered a grilled octopus, which was tasteless and super dry. Some parts of it were carbonized. In my life I have tried an octopus grilled, stewed, boiled, but this one was a total delusion. The personnel was not very friendly. The atmosphere was very dull. I... More

We were recommended this restaurant by Peter, the young man responsible for the sun loungers on the beach near Lassi Hotel. We were not disappointed. The owner gave us a very warm welcome and provided help and recommendations with the menu. The meals were just great, the best we had. I can thoroughly recommend the Sea Bream. The service was...

Easy to find - we walked off the ship and ambled up the harbour, looking for somewhere that looked as if it was serious. We chose this place because it looked busy. Staff were friendly and efficient, spoke good English. I had grilled chicken breast, which was fabulous. My son had an English Breakfast - which looked great to me,... More

I am very sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay at our restaurant. On the evening of August 1st, and the few evenings previous to it, we were extremely busy, with all the tables being used. If the service was a little slower than usual, it was due to beinb tremendously busy. As for our staff being inexperienced,... More

We went to the port side because of rave reviews and because the captain's table restaurant in argostoli's main square seems to have gone downhill. As reviews noted, the New Jersey/Greek owner is delightful, and the setting is fine, but the food is also only fine - my stifado was good, my wife's sea bass OK, and the spetsofy and... More
