Description: Welcome to paradise, is the first thing you hear when you come to Porto Castello tavern. This restaurant is unique because of its very good location, just behind the main square of Perissa, facing the sea, two steps from the shops and the bus terminal. Walking around you 'll find out that Porto Castello has the only Roof Garden on the whole 7 Km beach of Perissa.

The food and drink here isn't too bad at all and relatively good value for money. Sadly the service leaves a lot to be desired. Whilst all the staff are very friendly and welcoming they are very slow at getting meals out. We would wait anywhere between 30-45min, even an hour, to get the breakfast included in our hotel stay. It is a shame as they are nice people in a nice location.

Terrible food with waiters who forgot more than they remembered. Starters that arrived after the main course and were then inedible. Felt very disorganised with tables just left with half eaten food when people had gone. Could maybe have understood if they were busy, but they weren't and now we know why!

I came across this restaurant by chance, since I had just left the beach with my girlfriend and it was a total disappointment. I'm even amazed checking the rating here in TA.

We ordered the plate of fresh fish food. It came plenty served, however all the fishes tasted the same. My girlfriend even dare me to identify the taste of the fishes without looking to them but it was impossible. The only acceptable thing was the squid. There was nothing special here.

Was a terrible bad meal and was also one of the most expensive meals we ate in Greece. Even the wonderful Metaxi Mas or Anogi were way cheaper than this. The waiters tried to be nice but way too artificial. Besides that they were trying to lure people to park on their parking spots: as soon as people parked and did not went to their beach or restaurant they would become completely rude with people. Also their beach was clearly disorganized, compared with others around.

My advise? Skip this one..

Had a lovely lunch at this place and Anna the star waitress. I absolutely loved the greek starters of oven Feta and Fava.
