Description: In the heart of the seaside village of Limeni in Mani, the famous fish tavern "Takis" offers its exceptional seafood delicacies since 1986, combined with the ultimate location and view. With the eyes filled up by the deep blue, the sound of the sea breaking the silence and the tastes stealing the show. Fresh fish, shrimp, squid and the famous spaghetti (with shrimps or lobster), cooked with the "secret" recipe of Takis have established the tavern "Takis" among the most famous destinations of Peloponnese, visited every year by people from all around the world!

“Great location but that's about it all”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

The scenic location and the nice setting prepares you for a great meal. Well... not. The service is disorganized, loud and sometimes rude. The variety of fish and seafood is great but everything is either over or undercooked. This place could easily be fantastic but lacks the final touch of a true greek restaurateur. Pity.

“Great location and superb fresh fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

There is quite an extensive menu, but your best bet is to go into the kitchen and choose your fish from the display. It will then be taken to the barbecue area, seasoned and grilled. There is only fish, and wholesome locally grown vegetables. We had red mullet (3) and langoustines (3), all very tasty. The fried potatoes were light and creamy, and I also found the cucumbers in our salad unusually tasty. The only slight problem is that the bill is unpredictable, as the fish is weighed and you are charged accordingly. Our bill came to 50 euros, without drinks (on this occasion we made do with water plus a dash of lemon juice), and although this is more than you might pay elsewhere, Takis is a cut above the competition.

“Fresh and wounderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

This Restaurant is the best we have been to in Mani and almost all of Greece, we travel here the last 20 Years. Thank You Takis for the hospitality and the outstanding welcome everytime we came there (5 times in 10 days) Also our greek friends are delighted! See you next year.

“Only good view...nothing else!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Highly disappointed! I was there with my parents on 22/8/2013. We have seen the previous day that it was full of customers and foolishly we got carried away by this fact and went for dinner.
The personnel and especially the owner were very rude. We asked for the menu but they had nothing to serve from the menu list. First time that i went to a fish tavern which had no octopus and no other sea food apart from two types of fish and lobster. My parents insisted on leaving the place and i wish i had listened to them. Eventually, we ordered lobster, feta cheese and wild greens. The feta cheese came into three little pieces as if it was a remaining from other tables. The greens were not boiled and we couldn’t eat it.
Having complained about their poor service they did not bring us the dessert which we saw they were serving to all the other tables.
We paid 70 euros, of course we got the receipt and left nothing for tip. They did not disserve it. It would be no surprise if they had spit on our food considering their bad manners.
If you want to spend your money there are better places to choose.
