“Home like atmosphere and friendly service but not impressive food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

After walking around and admiring the treasures of old monasteries and spectacular views, mountain air made our appetite really good and we hoped to enjoy some greek specialities.Penellinio was our choice. Friendly and smily staff made us feeling like if we were dear guests at greek home, but food , unfortunately , in spite of generous portions proved to be disappointing.. Home like but too oily soup with huge pieces chewy meet of potato, the lamb was very fat and chewy also and only salad was real joy.. It was still great pleasure to have some rest there , look over old photos, plates in old fashioned sideboards, home icons and enjoy home like atmosphere.

“Yummy slice of Greece”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

You must go here. Great food , fabulous service. We enjoyed 2 dinners and a delightful lunch outside . The eggplant was a dream and the yoghurt and fruits left me speechless. No wonder this place is so popular - even in the off season. A large menu and all fresh even the house wine was a delight. This place works hard to please and deserves your tips when you go.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Not only was the food delicious, but the staff was extremely friendly and attentive. There are alot of options to choose from. I also enjoyed the view of Meteora from where we were sitting. They also gave us a tray of fruits for free at the end which was really nice :) Would definitely return!

“Good food, helpful staff,restaurant lacking in ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

As I was on my own they created a plate with four small portions of starters, at a very reasonable price. This was unusually accommodating for Greece! I returned a second night with a friend and again the good was good.

I was in Greece for a month and this was the second best of the restaurants I used. The food was tasty, not over-salty as much is.

Very helpful staff.

Home cooked food. Family owned restaurant with reputation of quality food. All made and cooked in house with the tach of Soula the chef. Real Greek cuisine with good prices.
