“A good quality taverna”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Around the corner from the tourist centre of the lake, this friendly place serves decent food at an ok price. The Amalrhea salad was good, as were the sardines. It's next to the road, so not totally peaceful. Beyond is the stunning view across the bay.

“Superb”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Saw this on Trip Advisor and decided to go on our last night this evening. Very pleased we did! 4 adults and 2 children (15 months and 2.5 years). The food was great. Steak cooked to perfection. The service even better. High chairs for the kids allowed them to air right up at the table with us and even brought some toys to the table. Lovely touch as kept them occupied while we enjoyed dinner. Asked for milk and they asked if we wanted it warm or cold. Baby dropped dummy on the floor and they went and washed it before giving it back to her. Nothing was too much trouble and they were very friendly.
They brought cake at the end on the house and it was amazing! Was so full from dinner but couldn't resist.
Lovely food and great value for money compared to some restaurants around the bottomless lake! Would thoroughly recommend. Thank you for a lovely last evening.

Amalthea,located on Kitroplatia beach, is at a walking distance of the port and of the Voulesmini lake .Welcome and service are very friendly. On a very sunny day ouzo was a must as a starter for the lunch.Greek salad and chicken dishes were good accompanied by a tasty local red wine .

“Consistently good”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Back in Agios and it was good to see that an old favourite was still performing well. It was clear that it was not just ourselves that enjoy eating here - it was very busy with both tourists and locals on both nights.

Had a couple of very enjoyable meze style meals, washed down with a very drinkable house wine.

We both ate a lot. Drank a lot. All for a total of 50 euros.
