Great meal for hungry traveller's

Great value and tasty. Bruno our waiter is the best! He suggested we take a walk after lunch along the bay and by chance we saw a turtle swimming long side us.

We had heard good reports of this restaurant and were not disappointed. As the name suggests it is situated by the water front and is a great place to eat, drink and watch the world go by. We tried the moussaka with a Greek salad and this was absolutely delicious, with the serving more than ample. The place had a... More

Portside Taverna is situated along the harbour side right by the ferry to Lixori. The food is traditional Greek taverna style and is very good with generous size portions. It is not at all expensive and the staff are very attentive. A good place to watch the world go by.

Portions were substantial, food was fresh, perfectly cooked and service was efficient and friendly. *****don't follow your sat nav there on Trip Adrisor, it's NOT accurate. Portside Taverna is opposite the... More

Visited several times for coffee, lunch and dinner. Owner remembered us on each visit and our preferences. Good menu selection, tasty fresh dishes. Owner friendly and chatty. Good location with harbour view, but sheltered from the wind. Free WiFi.

We found this by chance and the food was incredible! Hosest with the mostest so lovely. House red well worth a try. We ate octopus ( main meal) mixed sea food grill, pork souvlaki and beef sifado. The food was delicious. Well done to all the staff. Thank you. Nicky.steve.britt and dave from uk

Well, what can I say that hasn't already been said? Thoroughly charming hostess, outstanding food, great location (more on that in a moment). The Calamari.. wow... not your typical "frozen hoops" - these are the real deal. The skin/pigmentation of the squid is clearly visible (sounds grotesque but was a delight to see!), and the coating was crispy and light.... More
