Don´t go to this restaurant if you like trendy type restaurants with fishing nets, lots of Greek statutes and permanent annoying syrtaki background music. The Taverna Apollo serves really good Greek dishes in a taverna-like atmosphere of hospitality without all the typical kitsch you find in "typical Greek restaurants". My impression is that the guest, the dishes and the services... More

Very nice Greek restaurant, probably the best! Staff is very friendly! Food is very tasty! Soft Greek music is playing, nice atmosphere. Moreover, I saw Greek people eating there - this is another sign of a good Greek restaurant :-) I strongly recommend to go there, you won't regret.
