Lovely setting alongside the river with a great menu. We have visited here for many years now and food is always fantastic as is the welcome from Sakis and his team.

Great family run restaurant set on banks of the river between Alykes and Alikanas. Good menu with a number of traditional dishes which we enjoyed during both our visits to this restaurant. The drunken pork was to die for! Excellent and attentive service with some...nice touches like bread and a little pudding taster on the house. Would have gone back if we were here longer !More

Gorgeous surroundings, lots of wood and leaves.... cosy, relaxing, airy, friendly. Absolutely beautiful food, perfectly cooked. Excellent service, the best red wine - try the local Solomo's winery Mellitis!! Outstanding Greek flavours -the best grilled feta with honey and olives for an appetizer and you...must try the stifado, it was definitely the best I've ever had. Lovely place, good prices and very highly recommended!More

One of our faves in the area. After not being able to get a table earlier in our holiday, I booked via the messenger on their facebook page. Quick response..much appreciated. We loved our meals, with a feta and honey starter and meatballs..both fab. My...wife had a salad which she enjoyed, whilst I had a typical greek beef dish (sorry i forget the name) which was fab. Again a fab visit, i'm sure we'll be back.More

The food was correct but nothing transcendantal, but we have waited for more than an hour to get our meal .. way to long My advice, Order the food at the same time than drinks

We have just had our evening meal here and up to now, after 8 days of eating out in Alykes, would say this has been our favourite. The ambience is lovely and the food delicious. Prices are similar to those in resort and though a...little walk along the river, definitely worth it. You leave the hustle and bustle behind and really chill out. We will definitely come back before we return home.More

Food is traditional and tasty. Staff are excellent, no forced friendliness. Don’t tend to repeat restaurants but went 3 times. Slightly out of town along the canal, worth the 5 minute walk.

We used to visit here a few years ago when it was owned by Effi and thought we’d try it under the new owners. It still have the charming setting and atmosphere. Staff are helpful and friendly. There are a few cute cats that we...really enjoyed watching play as we were waiting for our food and eating. Great view of the river and the horses and carriages passing by. Was slightly pricey which meant we only visited once this trip but was still a nice visit.More

My family and I visited this restaurant this evening . When ordering, we were very clear in explaining what we wanted to eat. We then waited patiently for our food to arrive. Near enough an hour. Eventually when our food did turn up, my husband's...meal had been forgotten. Sadly this left a sour taste in our mouths as myself, my son and daughter ate without my husband, who then had to wait a further 20mins for his meal. Admittedly the staff did hover around us and check in but at no point did anybody apologize or even offer to take any money off of the bill. Staff could tell that we were annoyed. The food itself was tasty but there was a noticeable difference between the quality of our meals and my husband's food which came late. We have spent 10 years holidaying in Alykes but we will not be returning to this restaurant. We left feeling exploited. The €120 price tag was definitely not worth the experience.More

Lovely staff , good portions and the variety of flavours is very large . The delicious food and the beautiful view by the river, creates a perfect combination of a traditional greek tavern that everyone should visit. Would recommend it to everyone!!!

This taverna is in a lovely setting overlooking the river Skourtis. It is quite traditional and there are some great Greek classics on the menu. The food we had was very good and portions are generous. We also received complimentary bruschetta and a small custard...cake type desert. Worth a walk out of town.More

We visited this restaurant after reading lots of good reviews. Was greeted by a pervy waiter who looked the wife up & down like she was for sale at the cattle market & then whilst serving at the table tried to look down her top...whilst I was watching. Eventually after ordering food it arrived incorrect with items missing. It was sent back. The food arrived almost correct after waiting another hour. They apologised & said the waiter didn’t understand. The food was quite tasty when we finally received it. Interestingly on the bill, which had the waiter’s original order no mistakes were made. Not sure if they sent the order out hoping we wouldn’t notice items missing? It wasn’t the cheapest place either. It was an experience I would not rush to repeat.More
