“Uncle Fester Lives Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Great place to spend an evening and the staff are very welcoming. Music acts were not traditional Greek and very good. Visit if you want a chill out or a good laugh.

Beware of the owner though, I think he feels compelled to drink more than his guests and bemoaning the quality of his degree.

Haha thanks for the kind (and not so kind!) comments! I was impressed by your attempts to drink me under the table...fortunately I put my superior degree to use and had a few sly non-alcoholic cocktails whilst you were throwing down the Harvey Wallbangers et al ! Yamaz EYES !!!

A small bar with some brilliant singing acts , I got introduced to some brill cocktails such as black Russian and eyes special and they do some wonderful snacks and if you arrive late they will get something delivered for you .
Its a nice chilled place to relax and dance the night away.

It was great to meet you both, you clearly had a wonderful time and I'm glad that, even after you'd walked the Samaria Gorge, The Soulman was still able to get you up dancing...with a little help from the Black Russian cocktail! Hope to see you again next summer.

We're delighted that you enjoyed yourself...you're right, Bem "The Soulman" is a real superstar and we are lucky to have him performing in Eyes. We also have some new acts, including Karel a brilliant guitarist and singer from South America...so we hope you'll join us again soon for some more fabulous entertainment.

“The friendliest place in town !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We stumbled on this place whilst walking out one night on a recent trip to see family. From the minute we arrived we were met by Gareth and Glynn the lovely father and son owners - I must say the beautiful aromas coming from their kitchen enticed us in - the place was packed with drinkers and diners alike. The service was super friendly and what amazed us was that there was a great mix of greek locals, local ex pats and tourists so it proves that this place has it right. They show all major sports events ( i am no football fan but my wife loved being able to keep up to date on the tennis whilst we enjoyed our dinner ) . As the wife is a lover of exotic cocktails she was really happy with the extensive bar menu offered. In addition to this I must take y hat off to the chef, Aidan as his curries are not to be missed they are AMAZING ! Overall we ate here 4 out of the 7 nights we were there - there is something for everyone. There were families, couples and groups all there having a great time and the live music superb. ( they have it every night ) The first night we both had curry ( my wife had a lovely Korma and myself the terrific Vindaloo -only 6 euros each ) there were other dishes likes burgers / toasties / fresh sandwiches etc all really well priced for the area ( between 3.5 and 5 euros ) Overall I would not hesitate to recommend anyone going here - the bars / restaurants around the area are ok but this place wins hands down for atmosphere, price, quality and friendliness - hopefully if you are there at the right time you may see Joan selling her handmade crafts ( again not to be missed - our family back home are still raving about the Henrietta Haggis's ) Thanks to all at EYES and see you in a few months Andy and Linda

Thanks for such a wonderful review. It's great to have happy customers. We share all reviews with all the staff and it keeps us all smiling and enthusiastic to have such positive feedback. As you enjoyed the Vindaloo curry, you should try one of Aidan's spicy salads next time...make your EYES water!
