went here on our last night waiting for the flight. Out of the way a little (turn left at 3 little pigs from canal d'amour). It had only just opened fro the season, we were obviously among returning guests who were being warmly welcomed back, always a good sign. Lovely food, not commercial and as most of the places in Sidari, friendly, cheap, and very cheerful!

“Best authentic Greek restaurant”
Reviewed February 18, 2012

Have been going to the Symposio ever since we have stayed in Sidari. Nikos and his wife Effie are a lovely couple and their food is excellent. No fast food here unless you request it. Sauces are done from scratch and Bon fillet is beautiful. Because of the current economic climate for a proper fillet you would have to order it beforehand, but well worth it.

“still very much a firm favourite in sidari”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

we absolutely love this place,we 1st visited in 2001 and have found it to be our favourite place to eat each time that we have returned to sidari.we hadnt been back for 8 years and so we wernt sure it would still be there,we were right at the opposite side of town this time but still ate here 3 nights out of 7,the lamb kleftico is absolutely beautiful(cooked in foil, with garlic i think)and served with lovely greek roast potatoes which are a very welcome change to chips!! the prices are very reasonable too,about 7 euros for a decent main and the starters are lovely too!! i would happily eat here every night of my holiday and will be visiting again many times on my next visit to sidari in aug 2012.well done to all at simposio for providing consistant quality of food and service for so many years..see you all again soon.xx

“Oh Dear - It's certainly gone down the pan.......”
Reviewed October 3, 2011

Having been a regular visitor to Sidari one of our favourites was Symposio Taverna, we would take our boys on a regular basis as my eldest son adored the swordfish and Hubby would always attempt to finish off a humongous T-Bone Steak.. the staff were lovely and attentive and the food was delicious.

What a shame when we visited the service was below par as was the food..... greasy inedible and lukewarm....

Staff were quite frankly miserable unless they were dealing with their greek customers when they would usually run round like headless chickens!!!!

Now I don't mind waiting for food if the end product is something to rave about.... but to wait 1 hour 20 minutes in an unpacked restaurant quite frankly takes the biscuit!!!!! good job my boys weren't there!!! I think they would have gone into the kitchen and took over the place to ensure that they got some food!!!!

That was our final visit to the restaurant which is a shame because It was in it's days a wonderful place to eat.... sorry but not any more.......

“Super food at incredible prices”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

The food here is excellent and really cheap too, the staff are friendly too. You can actually have potatoes here instead of chips, we visited several times on our holiday as so many Sidari restaurants are mediocre/poor.
