We had the Stifado and the beef was tender and succulent and the sauce was deliciously flavored and spiced. Amazing fresh squeezed local orange juice. Friendly and polite service. Cool shaded outdoor seating by the river.

Orange juice was cold and greek coffee was hot. Make sure that you order greek coffee. Kleftiki in Domenico is something I recommend. Eat fish near the sea, eat meat in the hills. Beware, the pot for kleftiko is also hot! I recommend ouzo too.

What can you say about Smoothy Georges - other than that behind every smooth operator is an excellent cook like his wife Eva! Fodele is a wonderful village with a few good eating places - all worth visiting. But - Domenicos encompasses everything that is...More

We went there twice. They make cheap gyros (3-4 euros) with a lot to eat. You can eat them seated in the shade
