“Great place”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

The Riviera is a smaller taverna than some in Stoupa but its very well decorated and the food is very good.
The Chicken with pesto was very tasty and the rest of the menu looks good.
The waiters are all very friendly and helpful explaining what is in a dish or any specials .
A very good meal .

“Wonderful Pasta”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We only had a pasta dish each here as sometimes starters then pasta is a bit to much and we end up leaving some of the main course.
I had the pasta with Bacon,ham and cheese which also had a tomatoe based sauce my other half had chicken with spaghetti which was just as tasty. The garlic bread is very flavoursome. Again the house wine was good this time the Rose.

“One of the best”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We have just returned from our 3rd visit to Stoupa and cannot rate this restaurant high enough. We ate here sometimes 3 times a day. Always had a lovely English breakfast (Bacon sausage 2 eggs tomato and beans - Toast and jam) washed down with Tea coffee or juice. As we used to use their sunbeds directly in front of the restaurant we also had lunch here served to us by the lovely Liz who kept us well stocked with cold drinks and Souvlakis Greeks salads and toasted sandwiches during the day. We also came back one evening for a beautiful meal. My husband had the King Prawns which were huge and he got 7. Served with a salad and a delicious Garlic butter. I had the Pork Fillet also with chips. For starters we had some fresh bread and dips, and dessert we had the Baclava and Strawberry Ice cream, all washed down with a lovely white house wine. A lovely setting directly in front of the beach and a very lovely family that owns and runs it. Highly recommended

“Very much more than Excellent, better than ever this year”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

What can I say brilliant food lovely people, and now a refurbished look, modern style Taverna décor nice and tasteful .

The food is as terrific as ever and the fact we ate there 7 times out of 14 nights reflects this. Lamb Kleftico still as good as is oven baked Lamb, Souvlaki is a best in the resort. Can I also recommend both the Briam and the green beans also Gigantes AND almost forgot the Hummus tried this in 2 other tavernas and Riviera by far the best.

Both waiters are called Ilias (Ilias 1 and Ilias 2!!) Ilias 2 is the brother of Nicos who worked there until 2011 and is now in Pefko Taverna. They are now classed as friends and always give a lovely welcome.

Along with Angelikkis Taverna best in Stoupa but don't take my word for it try the Riviera.
