“Poor Service and mediocre food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We ate at the Galera restaurant in June as a break from our usual restaurant next door. The restaurant was not excessively busy but it took time for a waiter to come to us and find a table indoors. We were given a menu and ordered our drinks. We waited a long time for both the drinks and the waiter to return. We ordered our food and reminded the waiter of the drinks. After various attempts to attract attention - all ignored - a waiter eventually came to us and impatiently said the food would be with us shortly - not waiting for us to say that we were actually asking if the drinks would appear soon. The food then arrived - still no drinks - which we had to again remind them about and again got a rather impatient and irritated response - and no apology. The food itself was decidedly mediocre with tough, rubbery calamari and lamb that was mainly gristle and bone. Throughout the waiters appeared more concerned with the customers outside on the promenade than those in the restaurant itself. We would not return again as this was by far the poorest meal we have ever had in Afitos - both in terms of service, courtesy and quality..

“Very good food and good value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten here quite a few times over the years. There is a consistently warm greeting from the staff - even if you are just passing by while strolling around the "Promenade" in Afitos.

Food covers the usual spectrum available in the village. There is always a variety of fish available and it always looks fresh, moist and appetising. The chilled outdoor display cabinet is well cared for, unlike those in some other tavernas. The space available has increased as the owner has expanded the original restaurant area to include the former cocktail bar next door.

We have eaten excellent spaghetti with shrimps (large prawns), lobster, grilled fish of various types and also the tastiest stifado I have eaten anywhere in Halkidiki. The Greek potatoes are delicious and if you want chips you will find them hand cut from fresh potatoes are perfectly cooked.

Highly recommended and we will return on our next trip.
