Travelled here for lunch one sunny day. The village is quite high in the mountains and the views on the way made us glad to have made the journey. Piperia is a cosy, traditional Greek bistro with covered outside seating, from which you can appreciate...More

If in the region, visit this place. Food is good and service quite decent,. Do not expect everything to be perfect, thou. The staff (owners I guess) is dedicated, but this is still a restaurant in a little village up in the hills.

Friendly owners, great food and good service, superb views, free portions of mezze - common in Makri Gialos - made this restaurant one of our favourites of the holiday. Worth driving the seven Km from Makri Gialos for, or preferably hike there up the gorge.

Well, nestled in the beautiful mountains of Pefki is this unassuming, unspoilt food restaurant that just quenches all the taste buds. Oven roasted chips and platter of the vege pasties that just right to start your meal. Again, oven roasted lamb or good pork steak...More

The location of this tavern is a must. Visiting the Pefki village is like an escape to the 50's. In the main road, you will find this excellent place. Great view, real service from real people, gorgeous food. All the time, locals were bringing vegetables,...More
