the food for our kid was burnt, taste of our meal was plain and generally we felt like eat your meal and go so the table could be offered to other guests..

we were welcomed nicely but the menu did not give enough information on what each dish contained.the menu seemed very basic and we couldn,t find anything that appealed to us but i,m not saying the food was bad because we decided not to eat there so just had drinks and moved on

On our first day in Tsilivi we came across The Olde Vineyard which looked to our mind like a authentic Greek Taverna it was early evening and we were the only ones there. We ordered two Mythos lagers as we perused the menu which arrived in iced glasses and were just what the doctor ordered as the sun began to... More

A smashing little place with good food and friendly staff. Well worth a visit and the Sofrito and Stifado are well recommended!

Eaten here for the last two years on several occasions Food is excellent and the portions are huge. Waiting times suggest that a lot is made to order, or at least re-heated without a microwave. Service can be a bit hit and miss with delays in bringing wine, bread and sundries to the table.

We ate at this restaurant twice and felt that although the portions weren't overly plentiful, they were tasty and satisfied our needs. The kids meals were more than enough for our youngest....so we helped of course! The house wine was, in our opinion probably the best we sampled throughout out two weeks in resort, we even stopped of at 23.30... More

Really looking forward to eating here but sadly the food didn’t meet up to the setting. Steaks were lovely but the moussaka was poor and the lamb chops not worth the price. Hefty price tag too which wouldn't be a problem if the food matched up.

We have been here twice on recommendation. Thank you Jane. On both occasions we have had starters (don't be afraid to request 1/2 portions to share) and had main meal of fish. Red snapper. Cod. salmon. Bloomin amazing. The taverna is family run and it shows. Fabulous service from George and Amanda. They make you feel sooo welcome. Oh and... More
