“A Lovely Meal with a Nice View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

At this restaurant I found one of my favourite starters for the whole holiday. Spinach souffle, really delicious. I chose this as i hadn't seen it on menus in other restaurants.
But I was a little disappointed with the dessert menu.
I was quite a regular customer in the bakery adjoining the restaurant, so I expected something similar to the delicious cakes/desserts sold there. (walnut cake is scrumptious).But it was mainly pancakes.
The views over Pefkos are very nice, but obviously the front tables get taken 1st.
The battery operated candles on the tables could be removed !

“Nice meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

we enjoyed a nice meal here recently,however we thought it was a bit overpriced for the standard of food that we were given,the portions were very miserly and although tasty enough there are better restaurants with lower prices available in Pefkos .

“Above the others - the view and the food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

The resort of Pefkos has a choice of restaurants that serve good quality Greek cuisine. In our experience, there are a few that rate better than others and Taverna Tsambikos is one of those. It definitely is worth the 2 minute trek uphill from the resort's main street to experience its delicious food. It's menu offers a few dishes that are not found on the usual restaurant menus - Mama's lamb is delicious! The platter of freshly baked breads with accompanying dips given as a free starter is superb. The staff are consistently welcoming.

Recommended!

“Our favourite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Having spent a holiday in Pefkos in 2011, we already new this retauarant and couldn't wait to return. We were welcomed with open arms and given the red carpet treatment. The food here is delicious. If you like fish, don't miss the swordfish, the sea bream or the sea bass - all delicious. Aubergine saganaki is a good choice for starter. Mama's lamb - divine. Excellent service. Have a look in the bakery below the restaurant - you won't be able to resist! Great views from the restauarnt - don't miss it - you won't be disappointed!

“Differently good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Wandered up the hill for a night at the Tsambikos. This was different from all our other dining experiences in Pefkos. Quieter than many restaurants maybe because it's up the hill and a little more expensive than some.

Tzatziki good as to be expected. Partner had Kleftiko which was wrapped in filo pastry and tasted great, I went for the Moussaka which wasn't at all greasy and was lovely. Traditional with a twist.

Would recommend the walk for this. They also give you a selection of breads with some olive tapenade and sweet pepper butter which was good.
