It is well worth the drive up to Mirthios to visit the Panorama Tavern just for the amazing view. We only had beers but found the staff to be very friendly and the food coming out looked delicious.

Your trip up to Panorama is well worth the effort as the food is outstanding and locally sourced. The owner is a mine of information. The view from Panorama is incredible

We saw this restaurant but chose another one with a view over the sea and mountains. Came back for a frappe next day. Friendly host and view perfect.

A family of 6 adults came there for birthday dinner. The food was average; the service was a bit below average. There was music, which made conversation impossible. Good place for those who like to sit quietly and listen to the music as in concert.

You need car to get there from Plakias but dinner and sunset are worth going there! Very delicious regional dishes, a bit cheaper than in Plakias, very busy in the evenings, with live Greek music in some days. Small parking avaliable.

Definitely worth visiting - all the food for dinner was local, traditional, fresh and fantastically delicious and the views are exceptional. Very friendly service. They do a fabulous breakfast as well - a perfect way to start the day! Would definitely dine here again if back in the area.

I have been visiting this restaurant for over 10 years and it has never disappointed. Excellent service and wonderful local food. They use local herbs to achieve amazing flavours. I am veggie and have a great choice at Panorama: last night's risotto was just amazing, best ever! Every night there is something different and innovative on offer. It's also excellent... More
