We love Gabbiano's. For three years on the trot we have stayed at Grapevines Villas around the corner. We always eat our first and last holiday meals here - and a couple in between. This family run restaurant does the basics very very well and is good value. Menu that caters well for kids but also does well on a... More

Food was ok. Not very good but not bad either. Owner and waitresses were staring at us the whole time we ate and that was little bit weird...

You can tell that the traditional stuff is home-made, because certain dishes are only available on certain days. The Kleftiko is the best!

Just fantastic. Unfussy, very friendly and superb with kids. The food is similar. No pretentions to be anything other than hearty, authentic and tasty. One of the nicest places I've been to on the planet and somewhere a lot of UK restaurants could learn a thing or two from.

Have eaten at this fine establishment many times in the past 15 years. This time we were staying at the Sunwing for a week, and for four of these evenings we ended up eating dinner there. We prefer this location opposite the hotel instead of the one down in the port, since the establishments in the port are much more... More

We've eaten here for breakfast and lunch and can highly recommend it. The owners are truly lovely people and the food scrumptious.

Hosts were welcoming, food very nice but a little on the expensive side. Worth a visit, but I wouldn't return in a hurry, as there is so much more on offer at other restaurants nearby at a much cheaper price, and just as good quality.
