“Magnificent view ,magnificent view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

It was a little difficult to find as it is the street above , parallel to to Main Street. Seeking it out is worth the hunt . Coming from greek heritage and being a good greek boy that has been well fed home cooked greek cuisine by wife , mother, mother in law , grandmothers this is the place to visit. The food is fresh and delicious lots of love has gone into each meal , from the eggplant dip , hand cut chips to the freshly baked desserts , it does not get better than this. Andreas served us , he was polite and hospitable clearly someone who takes pride in what he does . Menu is extensive considering all the food has been made fresh on the premises it amazes me the variety of dishes on offer.
The main fare is fresh tasty and bountiful but the deserts are to die for made fresh on the premises daily including the cherries in syrup that goes on the cheesecake yummy. When visiting Delphi you cannot frequent any other restaurant . By the the way the view is magnificent also much better from the street below.

“Nice view - decent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Ate here at the recommendation of the hotel host.

The view was nice - food was good - staff pleasant.

The only drawback I could see is that is was full of what appeared to be a tour group. Since there were only 3 or so very hard-working waiters, it was a bit hectic and noisy. In retrospect, I wish we had waited an hour or so before dining -- or went somewhere else.

“Prefect restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed the beautiful restaurant overlooking the valley. We had lunch after visiting Delphi at Vakhos, recommended by our driver. Fortunately, we were seated at a table with spectacular view. The restaurant was extremely busy but the family owned restaurant was able to take care of everyone. Service is first rate. Food was great!

“Pretty good so ate here twice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We liked the food here so revisited the next day after a mediocre experience at another restaurant in Delphi.

Yes, you get a nice view if you're by the window, but you also get this at other restaurants with the same overlook. The first time we went, it was noisy due to a large tour group. The second time was more peaceful. Diners were mainly foreign tourists with a sprinkling of Greeks.

We particularly enjoyed the vegetable dishes - stuffed peppers, the "giant" beans (taste better than they sound), the mountain greens. The house wine is from a local vineyard on Mt. Parnassos, and the waiter was friendly and knowledgeable.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

The service, food and view were all worth the trip . This restaurant was recommended to us by our tour driver and at first I was a bit skeptical. I am so glad we had lunch here since everything
was just perfect.
