Definitely the best place to eat in the region. Helpful and kind staff, nice setting and especially great food and house wine. All the Greek classic are worth mentioning as all was superb, but in my opinion gold medal goes to the rabbit stew kindly suggested by the staff. I have rarely had enjoyed so much a dish!!

We went for an early dinner. It was relaxing. There's a nice view and garden. Staff was friendly. We ordered greek salad, fried calamari and lamb chops. Calamari and salad were very good, lamb chops was average. Prices are reasonable. Small pieces of watermelon and sugarmelon and raki were offered from the house.

We visited it mid afternoon and had it all to ourselves. The lamb casserole and pork schnitzel were delicious. The service was superb and we enjoyed the surrounding garden with lovely flowers and hammocks. Great view of Falarsanna beach.

We came to Vssilis by chance, and you know how in each trip there is one revelation which makes you say: OMG: Vasilis was the one for us, restaurant-wise. Best shrimps I've ever had. I tried them all: grilled, fried & saganaki, they have a unique natural flavor which you won't find in an average taverna. Fantastic flavors packed in... More

We enjoyed a nice landscape of the Falassarna Beach with a cooling garden in the heat of Greek summer while having a tasty Greek lunch. A pleasant surprise to remember for years.

Beautiful setting overlooking the water with many well shaded tables. We had the zucchini balls, chicken, baked eggplant and grilled shrimp all delicious. Waitstaff was excellent as were the prices.

Stopped in for lunch here on our way to Falasarna Beach in on May 25th and we are SO happy we did! The food was all so delicious, the family was so nice (we were the only ones in the place) and the ground are beautiful. It's like a garden oasis atop the hills of Falasarna. We ordered the Greek...
