The waiters at lunchtime were most attentive and the authentic Greek food delicious (mincemeat in cabbage leaves, prawns in white wine sauce). They couldn't do enough for us - we enjoyed a leisurely meal with great views of the harbour whilst waiting for the Flying Dolphin to take us back to Athens.

One of the best authentic Greek taverns on the island with very fresh products and an excellent staff. Ask them for their recommendations rather than choosing from the menu and especially try one of their top fresh whole fish on the grill!

This was recommended by our hotel and we were very pleased with the food and service, at least on the first time we tried it. When we went back another night, the service was much more muddled, even though it was not at all busy, and I still did not quite get the main course that had been ordered after it had been replaced. However, the sardines on the first night were excellent and the calamari the best I have had, ever, which is saying something! Not quite sure what went wrong with the service on the second time - too many people taking the order, possibly. Despite this glitch, it is a friendly, well placed venue and we thought it offered good value.

Rota is the most central taverna in Poros town and when sitting there it feels like you're in the middle of everything that is going on in the island. What I love about Rota the most is the most attentive service that Giorgos the owner shows to all of his visitors. He is always there at hand to recommend best dishes for you. Once, during our winter visit when my friend and I both had a cold and were feeling a bit down, Rota took such fantastic care of us, pampering us with best dishes, making us feel welcome and warm... I never forget that feeling. And that's why Rota is special - because it makes you feel special.
Food is also exceptional here. Salads, particularly, and their Greek dishes too.
You can't go wrong with Rota!!

George and his team will make you welcome. Good varied menu and attentive service. Prices average for the Island but can be busy!
