“Great lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Four of had lunch here whilst on a day visit to the island. Staff were efficient and friendly . Food was good , could fully recommend the grilled octopus ,so tender and delicious . The pelicans kept us amused but the warm welcome and first class food would draw us back

“We enjoyed the Greek plate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We avoided all of the busy restaurants on the harbor and instead chose this restaurant for an early dinner before returning to the cruise ship. We ordered a Greek plate so we could try a variety of traditional dishes. The food was good and the service was efficient and friendly. We finished the meal with walnut pie which was actually a piece of dense cake in a pool of honey.

“Petros the Peilican is this restaurants main attraction!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

This restaurant has a reasonable menu and is fairly tasty and resonably price for a Greek taverna. My. Husband has the. Lamb stew which was very good and I had the fired sole which was fine but nothing special. Service was good but the main attraction seems to be 2 pelicans, Petros the male and his female friend. They nest and hang around this area as the owner feeds them. They hang around the kitchen area for food so get plenty of attention from diners and passing tourist. Our food was acceptable as 11 euros each, a litre of house rose wine for 14 euros and for dessert a Greek dish, baklava for 6 euros. Nicely priced but don't think we would go back as many. More places to eat at.

“Tourist trap”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

I went to this place which lies next to Nikos. I thought this was more of the real thing and less the tourist trap Nikos appear to be. Well big mistake, the place was fine but nothing special. it's not cheap so better go to other places, better ranked on tripadvisor. One has to fork out a bit more but it's well worth the extra.
