“worst value for money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Our expectations were very high according to recommendation, but unfortunately it was one of the worst dinner we had in Paros... the fish wasn't good at all! and the appetizers were only OK not more than that!

“Great traditional taverna”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We ate here on 2 occasions as it was close to our hotel and we really enjoyed the food.

On our first visit we looked at the selections in the bain-marie which all looked fresh. The owner/manager (Katerina?) took us through each dish and we ended up choosing from these selections instead of the menu.

We started off with tarama, large beans in tomato sauce and a greek salad. The tarama wasn't the best on I have had, but it was OK, the beans were amazing and the greek salad was good, but it had lettuce in it, not something we like in a greek salad. For mains we shared the stifado (beef stew with potatoes) and the eggplant with tomatoes and feta. The stifado was amazing, the meat was tender and feel apart and the sauce was tasty. You could tell it had been cooked for hours. The eggplant also was well cooked and tasty.

On our second visit, we tried tsatiki, saganaki (fried cheese) and stuffed peppers. The tsatiki was the best we have had on our holiday but we didn't really enjoy the saganaki very much. It was very oily (more so than normal!) and just not quite right. The peppers were good, the stuffing tasty and plentiful.

The prices here are cheap and you have a view to the beach over the road, so a good spot for people watching. Get there early to get a seat overlooking the beach as the place fills up quick.

The service is OK, however typical greek fashion, once you get your food you are forgotten about and trying to pay the bill to get out of there is a chore! It seems this is the norm for most greek tavernas and something you have to get used to in Greece.

“A Wonderful Taverna!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

My family and I visited this taverna 2 out of our 3 nights in Parikia. Delicious food, very friendly people & a fabulous view. We also had the rosé house wine (€3 for 1/2 litre- very cheap!) which was nice. Would highly recommend this place for a real Greek taverna experience!
