“Perfect start to our week”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We arrived at lunch time and chose Tselenti's because it was the first place we happened upon. Set slightly back from the harbour it has a great history - served good food well priced and with excellent waiters. We were tempted to return for an evening meal but the choice in Fiscardo meant that we just had to try different venues for each meal.

“'SPLENDID' TSELENTIS”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We have just returned from our 9th visit to Fiscardo and ate at Tselentis more or less every other night.
Lovely owners, Minas and Eleni who are very 'hands on' in the smooth running of the restaurant. Nothing beats sitting in the square eating fine food, listening to good music and watching the world go by. However eating inside this beautiful building is equally enjoyable.
Our food choices included chicken souvlaki with lemon mustard sauce, pork souvlaki with tomato and yogurt sauces, 'special' blue cheese salad, fresh fish, pork fillet with feta mousse and fillet steak with mushroom and peppercorn sauce. All beautifully cooked and presented.
The waiters, Lakis and Nick are always extremely pleasant and polite while still showing total professionalism.
Being regular visitors to Fiscardo we have eaten at most of the restaurants over the years, but from our first visit to the most recent, Tselentis for us is simply the best!

“Not as good as we had hoped”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We ate here on Friday 14th June 2013.
On a whole the staff were ok , but the food really let this place down ,
I ordered a special souvlaki which consisted of 3 cubes of pork , 2 cubes of chicken and 1/2 a village sausage with a few chips.
My wife ordered a beef shin , we were told that the beef would be off the bone , when it arrived it was just a very small portion of beef stiffado with some raw garlic and cold sun dried tomatoes added at the end of cooking. this was garnished with 6 , yes 6 french fries , nothing else , not even a lettuce leaf !
Prices were quite high at 12 and 14 euros.
The only saving grace was the comical entertainment of 2 cats in the middile of the restaurant getting jiggy with it ... although this amused us I dont think some of the other diners were too impressed.

“Came for a coffee and stayed for lunch....”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Set a little way back from the harbour of Fiskardo, Tselenti is perfectly located to catch the cooling breezes channelling through the village. We went in for a coffee, then had a glass of wine, which came with the most stunning Tzatziki (complimentary) and delicious olives. The fact that the Tzatziki was one of the nicest we've had, made us decide to stay for lunch and we were not disappointed!! We had the most delicious pork with an orange sauce, grilled vegetable stac and deliciously herb-spiced rice - all beautifully presented.
The service was attentive and friendly. The owner must have one of the most extensive classical music collections in town and has invested in a superb sound-system to fill the square with orchestral-quality music... a great experience!! Will be back for sure!!!.

“The real Greek experience...”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

My second week-long trip to Fiskardo and i could not wait to take my seat at Tselenti's to indulge in the amasing Greek cuisine and while away the hours to the sound of classical and Greek music. This restaurant with its friendly owner, friendly waiters, great food, music and wi-fi is worth making your base when visiting Fiskardo.
