We were here after the season, so the atmosphere was relaxed. Very friendly staff, great and authentic food. We came here with our baby girl (7 months) and the staff offered to warm up her own food and had a perfect chair for her. Prices are low, and the cook really wanted to surprise us with some recommendations.

Traditional greek food- but the entertainment was a surprise for us. The waiters dance throughout the evening. Then later they encourage customers to join in, there's a bit of a fireshow too!Great fun- we returned to watch it all again a second time

We are at this taverna yesterday and had the best grilled prawns I have tasted for a long time. The ambiance was lovely and service great. Will definitely eat there again during our stay.

Tasty Pastitsio pie and other offerings. Good prices. Entertaining a bonus/bit of a surprise but this impacts upon service which is a little slow at times. Nice atmosphere there generally. Toilets acceptable though accessible via a staircase and via the restaurants storeroom. Chef observed smoking whilst in kitchen area (though not whilt actually cooking/handling food I don't think). Not entirely... More

It doesn't look much from the roadside, but don't judge a book... I knew I wanted to go to Aries following some posts on Instagram, we dined on a Saturday evening and it was pretty busy. We were seated quickly and are starters almost instant. The waiters dance periodically, which leads to a great atmosphere, especially when they light the... More

A full restaurant who where a table in prime position for our party of six was found. It was clear from the start that this was going to be a fun evening. The Greek dancing was excellent with audience participation (who thoroughly enjoyed it). We will never forget the liberal amount of flame throwing across the floor - it has... More
