“Excellent Venue in a quite village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Just returned from Gouves on 16/10/12. Found this place on the last night of my holidays, wished i had found it on the first day, what makes it more annoying is I walked past it every night and thought it looked to expensive. How wrong can you be? This place is well worth a visit, its immaculate, the fixtures and fittings are excellent and the staff and owner can’t do enough for you. The drinks are reasonably priced for the resort (2 to 3 Euros) and not bad considering its all local lager (Mythos). The best touch of all was the small tray of appetisers presented with our round, this consisted of a few olives, sliced tomato and cucumber, two slices of salami and a wedge each of stilton and cheddar, lovely little touch and very tasty.

Take my advice but do not pass this place by, treat yourself and pay them a visit.

“Nice Location..fantastic menu, Free WIFI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

I have been in Yacht Restaurant several times. The first time i went in the day time for a coffee. I am maniac with cafe and i can say that is one of the best freddo in the island.
For the part of the food also i can say only good words. I really like the variety of the menu but my favorite plate is the fish. They have a special way to cook it...

I surely recommend Yacht for business dinners or beautiful gastronomy nights with good friends.
Last but very important for the locals is that Yacht is the only open restaurant during the winter time.

“As excellent as it gets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

I leave nearby and this is by far my favorite place. Well done to the management, they got everything just right. The service is great, the space is real class, nice yard outside, excellent view to the sea, nice playground on the back for the kids, great cuisine (fresh fish is awesome!), the best coffee, free wifi, internet corner inside, nice decoration and open all year long. They even have their own recycling collection bins. This is a Greek who did everything right. I wish they were more places like this in Kato Gouves because simply this is as excellent as it gets! Thumbs up!

“Number 1 in Kato Gouves for food and coffee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

I asked for this place to be listed in Trip Advisor. I still don't understand why it was not listed earlier, as it is the best place in Kato Gouves for coffee and food. The owners make a real effort to keep the place in tip-top shape. It is open all-year around (a rarity in this neighborhood), and the employees are lovely. The kitchen serves very nicely-cooked dishes (I personally recommend grilled fish, lamb shops and their seafood risotto, plus any of their salads). Their coffee is first class, be it expresso, cappuccino or freddo versions of them. Whenever I have visitors, we end up there for food, as I know that we won't be disappointed. Free-wifi and outdoor kindergarten.
