Over the course of three visits (lunch and evening) we were in no doubt that this waterfront restaurant was excellent, both the cooking (quite a bit on the open grill) and value for money. Dishes we particularly enjoyed included sardines, moussaka, baked aubergine with feta and the fresh local fish. Unlike some establishments in this up-market, picturesque town, this restaurant...

One thing is for sure: I loved my Moussaka and my fiancé thought her pork chops were pretty good! The spanakopita and Greek salad we had to start were good but nothing to write home about. What pushes this place to 4/5 for us is the fact that it is basically sitting on a beach and the staff is quite... More

Faros is a great place to try traditional Greek food. The cook is grilling the fish outside, so if you are interested you can watch him. We received bread and potatoes as starters and after the main course we got the traditional dessert Bougatsa and fruits. Although the food was delicious the service was a little bit poor. There were... More

Not the traditional service. They embrace the food and at the end the people. Great Beef Fileet and if you behave they will love you. Will come back and visit. Loved it.

We had a lunch time drink here, liked it so much we booked for dinner the following evening. We were not disappointed. Great fresh fish, grilled on an open fire-grill. Warm welcome from family staff. Lamb, chicken and prawns all cooked, served and equally enjoyed by our fellow diners. Waters-edge location that altogether created a perfect ambiance for a special... More

This is a simple, but nice restaurant located on the seaside, offering an amazing view. The food is very fresh, authentic, genuine, and tasty. A great variety of Greek dishes is offered, both fish and meat based. Having had the chance to taste both, I can say that these are all great. Portions and abundant; dishes at the grill are... More
