“Taverna owner fooled by kitchen staff.”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Matina puts on a good show - clippity clop - is her catch line. but the fish was covered in a bread batter to cover the fact that it was rotting (she was going to speak to her fisherman), she brought the wrong order (everyone at the table agreed but she insisted she was right and didn't take it back) and finally, she claims that the dolmades are made in her own kitchen. Obviously the chef hides his can opener away when she comes in.

“The most friendly service in Poros”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Matina is like eating your mothers food (if your mother is an excellent cook)... and she will give you advice how to do it on your own!

“Beautiful seating and a warm welcome”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

This taverne is located in the bay outside the center of Poros near the Navy training center. The owner Matina is very enthousiastic and gives you a warm welcome. You can't miss her because she is is always around with great service and good advice. Among other languages she also speaks Afrikaner. The meals are authetic Greek and come in big portions. You will get value for your money. Tip: ask Matine to arrange a watertaxi back to the center of Poros. She negotiates for you about the price and she plays hard ball!

“Best swordfish ever! The best view of Poros and the evening lights of Galata.”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Traditional taverna right on the sea. Best views of Poros and Galeta. Wonderful meal of swordfish, seabass and salad. Reflection of the lights of both towns in the calm sea at night will stay with me forever.
