Although the food was good, the place had character and the scenery was great, I think it could do better with the music, the cleanliness of the cutlery and the noise/behavior of some residents. Also, it was a bit pricey for what it offered. P.S. The staff was very helpful.

The food is simply ok. Some dishes better than others, spaghetti being one of the best. However you need to go for the view! Simply super like being on the top of the Alps but still in Greece. We visited during a hot summer day and regretted we did not bring something for the cold. Also our kids could have... More

Wonderful and reasonably priced traditional Greek and Italian food. A family of mixed meat-eaters/vegetarians and occasionally fussy kids were perfectly catered for

A steep drive south of Sparta (20 min from the center) leads to Ilaeira Mountain Resort and restaurant. You will fall in love with the view, the garden, the luxury, the good food and the reasonable prices. Warning: you might be tempted to spend a few nights at the hotel, once you also discover the wonderful hikes!

We went with my family for a trip to Taygetos mountain, near Sparta. The trip was very interesting and it got even more interesting when we found this restaurant. The food was absolutely perfect and the position of the restaurant was very convenient after our trip to Taygetos.
