“One of the best in Pythagorion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Irodion Garden has very good food in a lovely garden setting. The menu is extensive, and as it was hard to choose our main courses, we decided to share the platter of 6 different dishes for two people.
It took a while to get our food, but it certainly was worth the wait. Among the dishes were the best moussaka we’ve ever had, stifado, a pork and chicken dish in a very spicy tomato and chili sauce (a version of bekri meze), lamb casserole with vegetables and cheese, and gouvetsi. Our very cheerful and attentive waiter (I think it was the owner) had recommended us to skip starters, as the platter would have plenty of food. Not only was there plenty – it was more than enough! Try as we might, we couldn’t finish it, even though all of the dishes were delicious.
After we finished eating, we found out that there also was goat and wild boar on the menu. What a pity we weren’t informed of this ahead of time! We would have loved to try out both dishes. We could have dined there a second time, but there were so many other restaurants in Pythagorion that sounded tempting.
We were too full for dessert, but appreciated the drinks made of cherry-flavored ouzo when we asked for the bill. I thought the combination was kind of weird, but my husband loved it.
This is a restaurant we definitely will come back to on another trip to Pythagorion.

“Away from the crowds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Set in a courtyard off one of the backstreets and a little further up from Esperedes (opposite side)
the Irodion is a very good restaurant which we ate at once during a fortnight stay in Pythagorio.
The meals of the day when we attended were lemon chicken and sea bream so we chose both of these as main courses and soup and meat balls as starters together with half litre of house red.The bill was around 35 euros with tip and a free drink.

“Favourite restaurant in Pythagorian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

This restaurant is hidden away in the backstreets of the resort away from the hustle and bustle of the harbour front where the endless restaurants means the waitors are all competing to get you into their restaurant. We found the Irodian to be great value for money where you receive genuine service. Delicious food! Try it!

“Delicious food & no pushy staff trying to drag you off the street..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Our 2nd visit, 1st was in 2011. Service even better now, really good selection of dishes inc. vegetarian, house rosé tastes great and is good value local wine. Ok it doesn't offer views like the ones on the harbour of Pythagorion but you don't get harassed by waiters, owners etc. trying to drag you off the street as happens on the sea front. Our meal for 5 came to €87 inc. dessert and a refill of wine, on a par with competitors but attentive, friendly staff, good atmosphere and variety of menu choice make it ideal for a family or group with diverse tastes.
