Always get a warm welcome from Maki & his team. Beautiful location & very relaxing. Lovely food & friendly service. Have been eating in the Sunlight for the last 12 years always had great food & excellent value.

This is an OK place but not as amazing as you might expect from some of the other reviews. The food is pretty plain - not inedible but nothing special. The waiter was a bit brisk and the place had a strange atmosphere. Not too expensive though.

We ate here regularly when we spent two weeks in the village. The staff are great, always making sure you have what you need, the food is well cooked and tasty and reasonably priced. The special gyros and the fried calamari are two of my favourites. We would definitely recommend a visit here to see and taste for yourself.

Excellent food, good service, perfect scenery and relaxing atmosphere. We have visited the place on several holidays during last 10 or so years. Both lunch and dinner/supper are delicious 💕

Becoming one of my favourite places in georgioupolis. Lovely mezes, service outstanding and the best view in the area! I use the sunbeds here too and the beach service of drinks and snacks is great. Such a welcoming, friendly place. Please try it!
