“Good place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Mystras was amazing...we loved the place. And the dining options are pretty limited. With the limited options, this was a very nice place to eat. We did a lunch and a dinner here...food was very good both times. If you are a real foodie, don't set the bar to high and you'll enjoy the food and atmosphere of Mystras.

“Authentic Greek home cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

The restaurant is lovely, rustic and with a lot of character. You see local people eating there which is always a good sign. Your order is taken by the owner and his mum cooks it for you. Try the black eye beans with veggies (local speciality) and the roasted pork and lamb. They were tender and seasoned perfectly. everything about this place just feels authentic and honest. Perfect service, always there when you needed anything but never overbearing.
If you are staying at the hotel have the fried eggs for breakfast, from their own chicken! Huge orange yolks fried in olive oil. We Would love to come back!

“Tasty Greek food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

There are limited dining options in Mystras, but this would be a good choice for local cuisine. The server kept emphasizing that everything was "local and authentically Greek." The setting in the side, vine covered garden is quite pleasant. We had tzatziki, Greek salad, a very unusual saganaki (fried in phylo dough), stuffed tomatoes and a half litre of wine for 28 euros.

“Be a guest, enjoy Greek food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This pretty young family definitely knows how to run a restaurant (and bed and breakfast as well, but since I didn't stay there, I can't review that part of their activity), and how to make clients feel like guests. When the season asks for it, the fire place is lit, adding to the overall warm atmosphere. When the season permits, there's the very cosy terrace, where crises seem far away. In all seasons, there are the little tables and chairs in front of the (apparently recently restored) building, where you can have a look at the villagers' activities, and look straight into the road to Sparti. Yes, it's a corner :))) Ow, and of course, excellent Greek cuisine! If they don't propose a dish, do ask what they can propose: the lady speaks rather fluently English, and their local dishes are great! Unless, of course, you really want to stick to spaghetti, hamburgers and fries...
