Loved this place - for decent coffee and great cake in the morning, through to wonderful evenings meals. They were lovely and welcoming of us and our 2 kids whatever the time of day. We watched them cook our lamb and chicken over the coals,...More

In a lovely setting tucked away in the village, this pretty little taverna has a rustic chic about it. The food was some of the best we’ve eaten this week. I would definitely recommend.

Arismari will be a fond memory of our holiday in Gavalochori. This village is made all the more charming by this lovely place in the old village square. Foodies and artists will love it. I had tears of joy when I discovered this hidden gem...More

We chose the place on recommendation from our villa owner and from the guide book. The village is idyllic, the location of this restaurant in its heart under an ancient tree (rather over-pollarded!) ideal, the atmosphere dreamy! Absolute gluten-free confidence, a beautiful Greek menu, surrounded...More

Wonderfully located in Gavalachori. Kind owners offering nice lical food with a twist, slighly more expensive than in the environment. Still more than worth paying a visit. Sometimes live music (reservations necessary). The ambiance is great.

Usually very busy in the summer months we visited on a cold, wet December evening. Gone are the tourists but the same warm welcome awaits you from Anastacia. The open wood burning fire creates a feeling of Christmas past. A new enclosed dining area has...More
