“Typical greek restaurant, nothing special about it”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Food was typical of a greek restaurant in the mid 90s, nothing speci or exciting. Not cooked exceptionally well and it didnt feel very fresh, it was just on. So was the price and the atmosphere.

Overall, find somewhere more interesting to spend your time and money, unless you only want food.

“A must visit restaurant”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Ate here twice this holiday. Kleftiko was amazing as were the lamb chops. For me the Greek restaurants cook the best lamb chops. Wine was cheap and the service quick and efficient. Good value. We'll be back

“Fantastic, authentic food and excellent hosts”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

This was the only place that we ate at twice during our weeks stay in Parga. Initially what drew us in was the fact that the waiter left us in peace to read the menu out front without trying to drag us in, which unfortunately seems to be the norm for most of the harbour front restaurants. There was so much choice that we literally couldn't decide what to eat but the waiters were very knowledgeable and kept popping back to our table to answer questions we had about ingredients and the cooking process etc. On our first visit we had Stifado and Kleftiko, both were absolutely amazing and the portions were enormous. The Stifado here was much better than the bland one that we had up at Yiannis. The house red is also quite decent considering how cheap it is but I will say in fairness to Yiannis they beat Arkkoudas hands down with their house red. On our second visit we had the Spetsofai and the Salt Cod, again both meals were fantastic and portions enormous. The staff at Arkoudas are very attentive but not too in your face and we had a good laugh with them on our second visit, the ambience is very relaxed and nothing is too much trouble. You tend to get a little freebie in most restaurants in Parga but in Arkoudos they were extremely generous giving each customer free ouzo, cinamon liqueur and fresh fruit which is a really nice touch. For authentic Greek food in a relaxed friendly atmosphere without the hard sell, give Arkoudas a try, you won't regret it.
