The manageress is lovely, so friendly and we really had a good laugh both were her and other visitors. We did have a... More

We were on a cruise and stopped at this restaurant. I had the grilled tuna and it was amazing! My husband had the dolmades and said they were very good! The service was impeccable and it was worth the stop. I highly recommend the Portside Taverna.

Stopped in after we docked and after a ten minute walk from the ship we stopped in and had a great lunch. Free wifi and a helpful and gracious hostess. Food was delicious and service was excellent.

I visited for lunch, with 2 others Food good value and no issues with any of the meals, The toilets however were a different matter, they were clean, but I could not stay in due to the smell! Staff friendly and helpful

Really nice position on the water, excellent fresh home cooked food, We shared a sea bream, salad and chips (no oven cooked potatoes on menu) really tasty and fresh, started with calamari, and butter beans in sauce. Definitely worth a visit.

We ate at this place last week and had one of the best pasta dishes ever! Rosa, the lady owner was very friendly and has a great sense of humour being a Greek New Yorker! Thanks for a great evening with good service.

The staff were lovely and friendly, but the food was extremely disappointing! It was far too salty, and full of oil. I was looking forward to this place because of the reviews on trip advisor. I couldn't eat my meal, in the end the staff were very apologetic and the meal was taken off the bill.

We have been there twice with my family and both times we got friendly service, simple but good food. We had fried kalamari (which was one of the best I tried on island) as well as seabass. All was well cooked and had a decent bill. I reco this place.
