An extremely disappointing lunch. The food was very poor but the service was non existent. The female waitress who may be the owner, was surly, very unfriendly and made no attempt to welcome us. She literally came over to us, handed us 2 dirty menus and said '"do you want food?" At no time did any one ask us if... More

Our evening started with a sour-faced woman making us wait while she smoked her cigarette. Then we ordered the worst Auvergne salad of my life...full of mayonese.in fact it was mayonese with a little eggplant. The mushrooms floated in some disgusting tomato sauce. I ordered a fish, hoping for a local fresh one, and got a slap of fresh but... More

As we were at one of the grill retaurants in Loutro we both decided to have something from the grill, I had the lamb which was absolutely delicious, my husband had pork which he enjoyed very much. We had house wine which was... More

We have visited 3 tavernas in Loutro where they grill lamb on the spit. To Limani Taverna, hands down, is the best! Especially when the cut is near the shoulder, the lamb is tender, moist and delicious (an understatement). Their pork on the spit is equally delicious. The setting is perfect on the water's edge overlooking the Libyan Sea. The... More

I was quite disappointed but the dinner I had there (average food and slow service) and did not reniew the experience during the week spent in Loutro. Maybe it is too big and tends to live off its reputation.

Wonderful and friendly staff, very familliar feeling. And the food - the whole family loved it! Good variation and the greek cuisine at its best. If you visit, you must try the grill. Nikos makes the local meat, just as you like it!

Great meat from the spit - tender and tasty. Quiet, serene service (if you want fawning and fussing, go to Dubai). Fresh salads and crunchy chips plus an incredible view. This is a small traditional taverna with good-hearted honest service and good honest food. I love it.

Limani Rooms above Limani Taverna have good views over the harbour and are very reasonably priced at 35 Euros. However the accommodation is pretty basic. Our room did not have any utensils or kettle, though utensils and hot water were available in the Limani Taverna downstairs. The fridge needed defrosted the freezer part being no use at all. Early evening... More
