Traditional greek cuisine, in a romantic casual relaxed atmosphere on a nice terrace , on a seafront, various appetisers, and many varities of greek menus, from the good housewife, in Greece it means a good cook.

Lovely setting but rude service and small portions made this a very disappointing experience. This is the archetypal tourist trap- go elsewhere.

We used this restaurant for lunch during our daily exploration of the lower town of Monemvasia (on 'the rock'). Overlooking the sea from a vine covered terrace this restaurant offers a genuine Greek menu at reasonable prices. Friendly and relaxed atmosphere contribute to the simple but welcome dining experience.

We always make sure to eat at Matoula when we visit Monemvasia because we know that we will get excellent food and service and a wonderful view . The traditional cuisine is well prepared with good wholesome ingredients and there is always fresh fish available . The environment is very friendly, but very busy at peak periods, so u might...

This restaurant is typical of what you find in this town. I had some tzatziki which was acceptable. My chicken with potatoes was a piece of dry chicken with the smallest amount of what was said to be tomato sauce. The chicken was barely lukewarm as were the french fries. The only redeeming feature... the terrace. Look elsewhere for a... More

We visited Restaurant Matoula several times because of the excellent veal and lamb dishes. Also the spagetthi turned out to be very good. The restaurant garden is very nice, unfortunately there are a lot of hungry cats joining you at dinner.

Went there twice and we were very happy both times. This is a good honest Greek food restaurant! They are helpful, the portions are big and the food is very very good. The service is good and they help you decide if your are undecided!

You come here for the view first... And it is spectacular... The menu had many options and the food was tasty. Being of Greek parents, we know what to expect and our standards are high... The cost was average for the area... As for the service.. Well..,It could be improved... The younger staff were great, however the older staff and... More

Located in a pleasant garden, but without a sea view, we found this restaurant to be okay. (this opinion was shared by others staying at our hotel) One gets the feeling of hurriedness, as if they are trying to serve the maximum number of tourists possible in a set amount of time. Service was fine, if perfunctory. Of the three... More
