Ok ,stumbled into the restaurant on our very cold and rainy first day on this majestic island !
Our spirits soon lifted by Makis 2 ( life long Panathanaikos fan) who made us feel totally welcome in this immaculately presented beach taverna ..with a difference!!
This being the excellent inventive menu .. Themed traditional for lunch and a great attempt at finer dining in the evening..and hell but have they achieved this ! Excellent varied fusion food , excellent prices service and wines.
Makis 1 and his family have worked long hours in a difficult climate to make this a success and he is quite rightly proud of his achievements
This IS the best food we tasted and boy did we eat !!
The team can hold a conversation on any subject you wish ...sport and politics guaranteed to spice up a great evening

My beloved & I visited this restaurant most days/evenings during our stay at Trapezaki Beach in September 2012 having strolled in there for an after-beach/early evening drink on the second day of our holiday. We were made to feel so welcome by Makis, his family and all the staff there. It was my birthday the next day and my beloved arranged with Makis for us to have dinner there the following evening. We arrived to the most beautiful table set-up, were treated like royalty and the food was fantastic. Following that and having tried a couple of other places that had been recommended we felt Denis was the place we preferred. We were very fortunate on a number of occasions to partake in food suggested by Makis that wasn't on the menu and we were never disappointed. How wonderful it is to visit a traditional restaurant providing great, locally sourced food and excellent service - can't wait to get back there later this year.

We ate twice at Denis after coming across it by accident when visiting Trapezaki Beach. We couldn't fault it at all - the portions were enormous, the salads very fresh and tasty and I loved the choice of unusual bread served with it. My partners Kefalonia meat pie was the best he had ever eaten and my stuffed aubergine flavoursome and probably enough for two! The best part of Denis is the lovely friendly service from the owner who had a great understanding of idiomatic English and kept us laughing. I have a severe food allergy which he took very seriously - unlike a lot of UK restaurants unfortunately - advising carefully as to what not to order which was very helpful for me. Looking forward very much to returning!

We stayed at the Trapazaki Bay Hotel and Denis restaurant was just a short stroll down the hill @ Trapazaki beach. Every meal we had was served by friendly staff who showed a real interest in our opinion on the food presented. Marcos made some excellent recommendations and even cooked us a starter that was not listed on the menu - just so we could experience a typical Greek dish that he personally enjoyed. When we asked for the bill it was always presented promptly, everyone we saw at the restaurant looked as if they were enjoying themselves and many different nationalities were present. Whilst Denis is a beach taverna it has a lot to offer - So if you want a pleasant informal meal , offering good value for money then go and enjoy.
