Based on other reviews had to give this place a go. Not disappointed at all with our lunch. The owner is very friendly and proud of his fare. He has every right to be proud as it was excellent. My wife is very hard to please but she so loved the Bass. Setting under the trees was stunning.Will be back for evening meal next.

My wife, child and I visited here after a recommendation from friends whom had visited the year before.

Giannos was an amazing host, his food authentic and full of flavour and passion. His charm and positivity was the best we’d seen from the island.

His served ice cold beer in an iced glass, and sat down and shared time with us making us feel wanted.

My son said his burgers were the best he’d ever tasted and his rakki was the perfect finish to an amazing meal.

His garden is a perfect place to sit, the shades of the trees helping with the heat of the day.

Thank you

We where here 3 years ago and used giannos taverna most days.

We have returned to prines and found 2 other restaurants have opened since our last trip,but giannos taverna remains the best of all of them.

Fresh produce,fantastic taste and service from giannos like an old friend or brother.

We left to get our flight,which was a late one and eat in town, we wished we had stayed in prines and especially giannos!

Top Mark's all round,dont miss it!
