“the best!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We visited Alykes in September and ate in the Ponderosa nearly every night. The food was delicious, size of the portions were really good and very reasonably priced. The staff, Siobhan Daria and Eleni were very professional and friendly and really made you feel welcome. We have already booked for next summer, see you next year!

“Excellent Taverna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

My sister and I stayed in Alykanas, but we walked into Alykes 5 nights out of 7 after finding this taverna on our first day. The food was excellent. Good portions, well presented and very tasty. The wine was very good too! The owners and staff were very pleasant. We will be back!

“Hard To Beat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Ate here on a couple of nights. The staff are friendly and always have a chat at the table. The food is excellent. It was usually quite busy early on, better to go a little later when it has calmed down a bit. The food and drink was very reasonably priced. As I said hard to beat!!

“A great eating venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Came across this restaurant by chance,what a find.Great selection of traditional food. Freshly cooked to order by the owners Nadia and Makis and served by the waitress Eleni. A small Taverna which gets busy after 7pm.We stayed in the next resort of Alykanas but walked along the beach to get here, well worth it, we had Kleftico Lamb off the chefs special board which is very tender and tasty, the second time we ate there we had the swordfish and again really enjoyed it.The prices are very reasonable, and I mean reasonable.
