Really good restaurant, felt it had an air of class compared to some other restaurants we visited. Food was a really high standard yet price wasn't much different to other nights meals.

A real treat, superb service, great food, fabulous tasty dishes, fantastic wine, well advised by a knowledgeable waiter, friendly traditional atmosphere. We can wholeheartedly recommend that if you are in Gouves you visit, regardless of your board basis included in your accommodation, it's such a treat and great value.

We were staying at a well known all inclusive hotel nearby but decided for our last night on holiday we would go to this restaurant after hearing good reviews from other guests at our hotel & reading other reviews on TripAdvisor.
