“A Delicious dinner with a lovely view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

A delightful atmospheric fish restaurant run by the charismatic Philip. Come for the breathtaking sunset, as the mountain across the bay turns red, and then enjoy a delicious meal of fresh seafood.

The smart move is to ask what the freshest fish they have is and then just order it - you can't fail that way! We enjoyed Grouper (good) and Sargos (better). The selection of starters we ordered was delicious too including deep fried aubergine, stuffed peppers and dolmades, all washed down with a few pitchers of the house white wine!

All in all a delicious meal and arguably a better experience than you'd have at the more famous Takis restaurant in Limeni across the bay.

It was all "lovely good" as Philip likes to say. :)

“FANTASTIC FOOD, FANTASTIC SERVICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

This is a fabulous family-run tavern right on the beach at Itilos, on the Peloponnese. Run by Pantelis, his wife Dimitra and their mum who is the chef.
You sit right on the water's edge, and the fare is fresh seafood (caught that day) and including very reasonably-priced fresh, local lobster.
Prices are very reasonable, and the hosts are very warm, welcoming and entertaining.
We had great fun and a great meal as well.

“LIKE FATHER-- LIKE SON”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

My son visited Peter at his restaurant on my recommendation. Peter his wife and staff were excellent. The seafood was fresh from the sea below the restaurant, I went into the kichen and watched the lobster being cooked not boiled to death.If you dont want to eat you can just pop in for a drink.The view across the bay is breathtaking. There are also 2 basic rooms to rent.See you in september Peter.
