The staff here are very friendly, but after ordering the pizza it turned out to be frozen, not a good look for a Taverna. The location is ok and great for getting to if you're staying at the Island Hotel which I was. I'd certainly go back for drinks though.

Good Food. friendly people, reasonably priced. Next to the hotel so having arrived too late for dinner we had dinner on our first night, would definitely have gone back if we hadn't been half board.

This was our 2nd year to Gouves and 2nd year eating at George Taverna Bar. The food is consistently delicious, large portions and very reasonable priced, and the service is excellent. George is lovely, and runs an impeccable taverna, being friendly, professional and also good fun. Highly recommend this taverna.

Our meal here was very good but there was no atmosphere as we were virtually alone in the restaurant. It was towards the end of the season so I suppose not so many people about but it completely lacked any atmosphere as "George" was concentrating so much on keeping a hopeful eye on passers-by, and paying no attention to customers...

Only called in for drinks a couple of times but thoroughly enjoyed it. Other customers said they loved the food but we didn't have time. Nice place with nice prices

We loved the authentic experience of sitting outside in the sun with a glass or two of 'refreshment' and the unhurried friendly and welcoming atmosphere provided by George and his staff. The food was also delicious.

Nice food and good service. Fantastic fish, and nice place to take a minute and have coffee after beach. Watch out for George and his whistle!

We were looking for some authentic Greek food outside the hotel and George Tavern Bar was recommended. It was truly a Greek experience evening. Each dish that came out was created with local ingredients. Many of the dishes were full of herb flavors such as oregano, dill, cinnamon, and mint, combined with Greek olive oil. One word delicious! During the... More

The food was amazing I use to eat there regularly as it was better than the hotel food we use to eat. I made many friends there i use to play Poole with friends. Very friendly and warm... More
