Unfortunately I was almost ignored as a guest from germany, the owner did not spend a minute to talk to me, so, friendliness seems to be at an end

Great food and the best assortment of belgian beers. Great terrace at the port, with a view on Monemvasia rock. The host was very friendly

We visited this restaurant twice during our recent trip to Monemvasia and the staff could not have been kinder. They really love children and were very attentive to my 2 year old granddaughter who loved this place, especially the giant turtles who come to feed...right outside the restaurant. The Octopus in red wine sauce was fantastical very memorable mealMore

Matthaios, one of the owners of Mateo's is a great host. A native of Monemvasia, he will welcome you to his quayside restaurant with a smile and a warm welcome. These are tough times for restaurant owners worldwide, but he is calm and accepting of...the circumstances. We had dinner and morning coffee at Mateos and it is everything you would expect from a Greek taverna. He will be honest with you about what he has that is fresh - in the off season, there are fewer items on the menu. Nonetheless, we had a great meal in the evening and started the day with perfect coffees.More

If you look for a change: Meteos has excellent autentic Thai food as well prepared by his wife. Try the tomyum gung and the yam talee. Of course the traditional Greek food is perfect as well .

I visited Mateo's place with my fellow musicians last weekend. The next day I also got a coffee-to-go, which was quick and easy. They offer high quality services, excellent sea dishes for a reasonable price, in a welcoming and friendly environment. Highly recommended.

Very very nice meal!!! We took octopus and calamari and it was great. They were very honest telling us what was fresh and what was frozen. The service was great and they even treated us to an extra beer!!!! My boyfriend had to work on...his laptop and they were very useful offering WiFi and a plug. Thank you!More
