We had 2 nights in Monevassia and had diner twice in this restaurant. This is avery special place. The setting on the roof trace is amazing, the food was delicious, the portions were generous and the staff very friendly. A great restaurant

We had a lovely appetizer of Taramasalata on their open patio after a long hike up and down to the citadel. The snack was so excellent that we booked for dinner… and that was wonderful too. Our daughter had a Margherita Pizza and it was...by far the best we’ve had in Greece (yes, pizza in Greece…it’s what she likes). And my Ouzo Shrimp was excellent - very rich - and the grilled lamb souvlaki was tender and perfectly cooked. Highly recommend these folks. Their service was also exemplary.More

Really nice taverna in the middle of town. We stopped here for an afternoon glass of wine overlooking the sea. It was a birthday trip and my husband ended up secretly booking a table for that night for a delicious and romantic birthday dinner. Excellent...service, food and setting...the owner brought a complementary piece of alamode birthday cake. Highly recommended while in the village.More

The front desk clerk in our hotel recommended this place as his favorite to eat at when eating in the Castle area, so we tried it. They have several outdoor terraces and the first night we were on the lower terrace, so had a view...but not as special as the view we had when we returned there the next night and got a table on the upper terrace! Everything we ordered, both food and wine, was delicious both nights and the staff and owner were as helpful and friendly as possible. We even stopped by in the morning for great expresso!! It's a special treat to eat here and much quieter than other outdoor restaurants in the town due to the terraces being up from the path vs along the path.More

Really enjoyed this place. Staff were friendly, food was great, portions too large for me but that was to the benefit of the cats of monemvasia. Will be going again before I leave.

Our charters group dined here when in Monemvacsia. The restaurant is really interesting, just like everything in this ancient town. The service was good despite being full. I had the pancetta which was fabulous. It was a healthy portion and I ended up taking half...back with me for breakfast on the boat. My husband had the fish soup and thought it was really good. We shared the taglani cheese which was fabulous. The Table had bread and tzatziki.. Yum! Take the time to stop at this island and visit this restaurant.More

We had dinner and breakfast here. Dinenr was delicious and staff working that night were very friendly and polite. Breakfast was also very good but the man working that morning had a little of abrupt behavior. Overall, the environment and food are worthy

Nice view from tables upstairs, but tons of noise from nearby pumps/fans. Downstairs very uninspiring. Much better places around in this regard. Food was mediocre at best. Not worth the price at all in my opinion. Way below average tavern quality in greece
