A very friendly looking man with a smile on his face asked if we wanted to eat, we declined but said we would like a drink. It felt relaxed with no pressure. We ordered two beers which anywhere else was €4 or less per pint....More

It is a difficult decision finding somewhere to eat in the old town, where every restaurant has a person outside purposely employed to get bums onto seats. Fainos was not like this and the lad outside did not pressure us to choose them, so we...More

Came here for lunch while exploring old town. Staff were friendly and the food was decent. I thought the food was a bit overpriced for what it was but other than that, can't really complain.

We were talked into here off the street by a friendly enough man, promising amazing steak, and there are signs of awards from trip advisor outside so we thought it would be good food. We ordered meatballs as a starter which were lovely, then two...More

Our company is established since 1992, our goal is the satisfaction of our customers with our local cuisine and impeccable hospitality and behavior of our staff offer their comfortable stay in a fantastic medieval environment. A place located in the middle of the oldest and largest medieval town of Europe. this was the incentive to create, in this space, a restaurant which respects the history and the tradition of the people, we have tried and hope we have achieved, to bind yesterday’s cuisine with today's gastronomical demands in an attempt to offer you the purity of the old and the quality and variety of the new. “fainos” (phainos) = from the Greek word “phos” (light) like in the same way phos in phenomenon, photography, phosphorus etc. It’s actual meaning is close to “enlightened”. The Greek people use the word fainos (phainos) to describe a brilliant, out of the blue, sudden idea.
