VISIT THIS TAVERNA!!!! This was without doubt the best restaurant we frequented whilst on holiday this summer. The welcome, the atmosphere, the quaintness and above all the food was absolutely amazing. My family (a party of 8) enjoyed four wonderful evenings here. Spyro was the perfect host and made everyone who walked in feel like they were long lost family.... More

After reading all the other reviews we knew we had to check this place out, and we were not disappointed, the traditional taverna was lovely, the greeting & service we received was so warm and welcoming, and the food was divine. As said in other reviews, we saw him leave in his mini bus and come back with a family... More

So, we visited Spyros based on the its score on Tripadvisor. We weren't dissappointed!😁 Spyro gave us a warm welcome, hammering on the 'feel like home' aspect. The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere. It's kind of romantic with the dim light and palmtrees. Regarding the menu: it consists of typical Greek dishes. If you don't like Greek food, you... More

First off: this is not a normal review, we visited Spyros because my sister was having her wedding party here! The wedding party consisted of about 50 people and started at 4 in the aftenoon. We walked there from Kato Gouves on the hot August afternoon and we were directly welcomed by Spyros with some large pints of Mythos. We... More

Well having read the reviews you sometimes wonder is this place really this good. I can absolutely confirm that it is!!! We dropped in at lunchtime for a drink and met Spyros and Debbie. They are so welcoming and warm that we couldn't resist returning on the night. Unbelievably Spyros kindly collected us from our villa in Kalo Chorio and... More

Spiros is a warm welcoming character. He is attentive and entertaining. We are here as we type this, it's a Friday night in August and the taverna should be packed but it's relatively quiet. The hospitality and the food are superb as is the atmosphere. Because Gouves village is slightly inland it misses out on a lot of the tourists... More

Spiros has moved his taverna from the little place by the church in Pano Gouves, but not to worry, he's just down the street. The new place is bigger and it is all outside seating. We have remained firm friends with this wonderful man since our first visit over four years ago; the new place is lovely and the food... More
