Good nights

We had 3 meals here during our stay & very much enjoyed them all. You really need to book to be sure of a table even for 8.30pm when we like to eat. The menu has plenty of choices & prices are on par with everywhere else. There is always a great buzz to Dama Dama & it's always a... read more

This restaurant was recommended by our rep. and we weren't disappointed, in fact we ate they twice during our weeks stay. This typical Greek restaurant had rustic but attractive decor. we were made very welcome as soon as we arrived the first time and recognised on our second visit. The service was good and the food excellent. Don't miss this... More

This family run taverna came highly recommended, and we had to book a table in advance to get in. Prices were good, food was very nice (we had youvetsa and mixed grill) but the service was painfully slow. It seemed to me that there were not enough staff in the kitchen as waiting staff were waiting for the food to... More

Decided to try here after reading the excellent reviews and always seemed busy even in the last week of the season. I ordered the beef stifado which was very nice but husband had the lamb kleftika which he saiid didn't have a lot of taste and wasn't impressed. Also we waited a long time for our meal the longest in... More

We ate here a number of times during our stay in Pefkos and it's one of the best for traditional Greek cuisine with fantastic service, you really are treated like one of the family. I have always tended to be a bit unadventurous when ordering but they really talk you through the menu and some of the specials were amazing.

A great menu of traditional Greek food in a decent location. The moussaka and beef stifado was very nice and the service was very friendly. Very reasonably priced, even got a free drink at the end!

Having read some excellent reviews on here we decided to book a table for the 6th night of our holiday. Every time we had walked past the restaurant looked busy and so we took that as a positive sign. However, I think we must have missed something as we found the food average and the staff not particularly friendly (unless... More
