Service was very good and we really enjoyed our meal. Would have given an excellent rating if the food had been hotter instead of just warm.

We ate at Georgio's Family Taverna on the 28th September. It was intended as a romantic relaxed evening meal and had been recommended by our holiday representative. It seemed busy but had a good atmosphere. The food we ordered arrived within a reasonable period of time and was tasty, portions were not huge. As the evening progressed the restaurant became extremely busy, people were actively encouraged into the restaurant, then abandoned for some considerable time, the emphasis seemed very much to be "bums on seats", as opposed to providing a continuity of service. There seemed to be a lack of leadership and poor communication between the staff, the staff in the blue shirts,(not sure if they were family members were pretty useless), the staff in the white shirts being more effective and doing the work, in fact chaos ensued! we observed a meal send back to the kitchen (reportedly undercooked) never to re appear! The table in question got up and left without paying the bill. Others were left stranded, all the while people were being encouraged into the restaurant. We were happy with our meal and the service provided and having ascertained that the staff were given tips left a tip of 10 percent which equated to 7 euros. A 'blue shirt' collected the money and appeared to pocket 5 euros, putting just 2 in the tip box for staff. It rather spoilt the evening! I would suggest that you think carefully before leaving tips!

We hadn't booked and the place was packed but the head waiter managed to squeeze us in. The restaurant was buzzing and the waiters dashing about but we were served well with local wine and seafood. We had prawns in tomato sauce with feta for starters with some bread for dunking - delicious. Then we wanted some fish so the waiter took us to the fridge to choose from today's catch. He recommended a large sea brem between us, which was perfectly cooked and delicious. Our only regret being that we didn't order chips to go with it, instead of going with his recommendation of steamed vegetables. However, this was rectified soon enough.

Food was ok, but the sercice was not. Intrest seemed to end once we (8 people) sat down. When it was time to pay, we had to list what we had.
