Our quad hire man recommended this place to us. A proper taverna so not as expensive as kamari. Great setting on the beach and the fish was great. Worth the trip

Thank you to the taxi driver who took us to Galini when we were stranded at the airport on Easter Sunday. For $55 US dollars we had the most memorable Easter Dinner in the company of local families. We had the traditional Easter dinner of salad (Greek), and grilled lamb and pork, homemade bread, potatoes, two carafes of wine and baklava and ice cream. After a short walk on the beach we had a complimentary after dinner drink. Thanks again for talking us out of returning to town.

We eat here one night on the strength of the reviews. Easy to find if driving as signposted from the main road out of Monolithos. I am sure as it is on the coast that you could probably walk here fairly quickly along the beach from Monolithos.

Arrival was friendly and we were talked into having a lovely grilled seafodd mixed starter of large prwans, Octopus and calamari, which was very tasty.

For main we had a grilled sea bream to share with simple tomatoes and potatoes. This was vry nice, but the main dish was 49 euro's, so beware, ask them how much it will weigh and cost before you order. However, it was very fresh, great tasting and a nice experience. Like most taverna's, we were given a free desert of the day which was a baclava type pudding and chocolate ice cream.

I would recommend, but be wary of the fish ordered by weight!!!!!!

A fantastic taverna on Monolithos beach front. My husband and I had dinner here sevral times during our stay, loved the food and found it to be very good value. The octopus is amazing - well worth a try! The restraunt attracts a lot of locals, surely a good sign of its quality.
