“Horrible”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Eating at this tavern, became our worst nightmare. The food we ordered was tasteless, moldy and absolutely uneatable. The prices of the food you order are much too high, and you get to pay for things you didn't even order! The staff doens't speak English very well. They are a little overenthusiastic as well. I won't recommend this place to anyone!

“Friendly, genuine Greek taverna”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

I found Ta Petrina while out exploring one day, and first took my wife back there for dinner, then the whole family (plus two friends). There's not much of the real Greece in Hersonissos town, which is just a pleasant resort town with very lively nightlife, so when I came upon Old Hersonissos, up the hill, I texted my wife to say 'I've found Greece'. Tucked away at the back, beyond the main square and easily missed, is Ta Petrina. Family-run, you get a real, warm Greek welcome - the friendly proprietress insisted on showing me the wood-burning oven on my first visit. And while the menu is broader than just Greek - there's pizza, for example - you'll want to try the real Greek food on offer, which is as good as anywhere we tried during our two week stay.
