“Excellent fish and chicken, top notch”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

We tried the Octapus on the eighth day of our stay, having had a good meal a few days ago at it's neigbouring taverna. We sat down at 1pm and watched the fishing boats unloading their catches, a perfect setting for sure.

Caroline fancied fish so opted for the Sea Bream, and was asked into the kitchen to make her selection which had been caught that morning. I was really hungry and although I love fish, I didn't have the patience to pick through it so went for the chicken souvlaki. We ordered some taramasalata to share for starters and this was delivered to our table quickly, beautifully fresh, lemony and with a huge Kalamata olive on top. We mopped this up with the fresh bread and it wasn't long before the mains arrived.

Caroline said that her Bream was cooked to the second, she virtually lifted the backbone straight out of the fish. My souvlaki was succulent, again, cooked to the second and very tasty, both dishes being served with a salad garnish and hand made chips.

All was washed down with a couple of large beers and when the bill arrived for €35 ( the most expensive meal of our holiday) we really thought we'd had a great deal.

“Lovely lunch”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

We left the beach early to have our lunch in the harbour. We opted for this taverna and were delighted with our tuna salad and whitebait and carafe of wine. Delicious.
