Hubby and I ate in lots of restaurants in the Alykanas area and all was lovely and we didn’t have one bad meal, but this restaurant stood out from the crowd. Food is amazing, staff are lovely, very friendly, and everything is very reasonably priced....Great value for money. Give it a go you won’t be disappointedMore

One of our favourites in Alykanas. Very traditional family taverna with a wonderful traditional menu. We have been visiting Mantalena for many years and always a lovely welcome from Maria and her staff. Great food in a lovely setting.

Food was tasty and hot and good variety . However due to it being fairly quiet at this time of year ( Sep) we felt a little uncomfortable as the staff just seemed to hang around the tables not doing much so we felt we...were being watched.More

We first visited this restaurant many years ago with our young daughter, who loved the play area - and we all loved the food. So pleased to return here, after such a long time, to find the food is still as excellent. We tend to...enjoy ordering a number of starters and creating a meze for us both to share. This was excellent and probably the best Tzasiki we had during our holiday. We visited twice, which is unusual for us as we tend to go to different restaurants, but it indicates the standard of the food and the very warm welcome from the family who run it.More

We had a lovely family meal here one evening. Kids loved the play area and service was excellent, food quick to come and relaxed atmosphere. I am coeliac and the staff were so helpful - talked me through all the ingredients in the dishes I...had chosen, to check it was all suitable and gluten free. I felt like I was in safe hands.More

The oldest and by far the best Greek Taverna in Alykanas. The food is delicious in particular the moussaka, stifatho, lamb kleftiko and souvlaki. The Pylarinos family are so welcoming and the service is excellent. If you’re looking for authentic Greek cuisine, Mantalena is the...place to go!More

We were in Alikanas for just one week, but we visited this restaurant on 3 separate evenings (we didn't visit anywhere else more than once). Everyone in our party of 5 enjoyed each meal we had here. Good friendly service with great food, and reasonably...priced when compared to other local restaurantsMore

Excellent food and excellent staff as always. Been coming here for 5 years now ( covid break obviously stopped us for a while) . Our return after covid was like visiting family. A warm welcome and a lovely setting.

I ordered the prawn pasta which was awful. There were plenty of prawns in it but they had a musty taste. There was very little sauce in it which made it very dry and unappetizing. My husband agreed it tasted awful. The waiter wasn't nearby...and I waited 10 minutes before he was near our table to tell him. A lady waitress came over and told me I should have complained earlier so she would have to charge us for it. I said ok and my husband finished his meal which was very nice. When we got the bill we had been overcharged so I called the waitress over. She said we must have ordered off an old menu and that was the price now. I told her that was unacceptable and that was the menu we had been given and I shouldn't have been charged for it anyway let alone overcharged for it. We paid the bill which was adjusted to the correct price and left. If you do go here make sure you check your bill.More

Very friendly restaurant. There is a large play area for young children which the kids loved. I loved the food here. My only criticism is that the appetisers are too big . Service is excellent and would definitely come back.

Restaurant not as good as it used to be. Moussaka was quite dry. Tasted ok but probably microwaved. Waitress too busy on her phone to notice we'd finished our main course. Would have ordered dessert but put off by the ambience. Don't intend to return....Such a shameMore
