“honest and friendly”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

The lovely promenade of the port of Poros is full of tavernas one next to the other making choosing a difficult task. Apagio is certainly one of the best.Further away , towards the end of the tavernas, it is quieter and more relaxed . The owners are very friendly , the cooking is honest and tasteful and the fish is fresh and reasonably priced- we have checked other tavernas nearer the port itself and they charge more. The home made tuna salad- made with fresh tuna - is a great starter - not to be missed. And if you order more than you can eat you can always feed the hungry cats waiting patiently by your feet.

“Great local food, fantastic hospitality fair prices.”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

We have arrived at the restaurant based on TripAdvisor. A few minutes after we have arrived we already felt at home. The owners suggested the dishes for us and after a few more minutes the small sized plates starred to arrive. Every plate was superb and delicious.
We had great time - a definite must return to place!!

“One of my favorites”
Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

It's reasonable to say all the tavernas on Poros try hard to please their customers, but Liz and Spiro at Apagio go bit further. I love it when Liz sits down with us and talks us through what the kitchen has to offer. Great food served here with a fantastic welcome from the family and sometimes a little different to the others. You've got to try it if you're in Poros.

“Favourite taverna”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

After many years visiting Poros, Apagio still remains top of our tavernas. As always we were welcomed with smiles and greetings. Our friends who visited for the first time also loved it. Food cooked fresh and good sized portions. Wine is of good quality and not over priced. Liz Spiros and sons always take time to talk and Spiros even showed us how he caught his calamari by drawing a wee diagram on the tablecloth! He is passionate about his fishing.
It's worth the stroll along the waterfront.
We'll return for sure.
