If you want a sunset photo go here! You have views of Stoupa, the beach and the mountains! The food is a little different too and very tasty. There is a demonstration of bread baking every Wednesday in summer. A smart place to eat in Stoupa.

We love the food and the staff at this restaurant. My favourite meal is the chicken with plum sauce & rice. This year we ate there a few times. Stunning sunset views just add to this special restaurant. The staff are very attentive and make you feel very relaxed . Good kids menu too. We will be back!

Delicious home cooked food with plenty of vegetarian options. The special pork was fantastic. Free dessert topped off a wonderful meal.

Would recommend this restaurant for the view of the sunset alone. The food is not the norm in the village and so was a welcome change. Very tasty dishes - large portions though!! The in-house museum is very interesting as is the bread baking on a Wednesday when we were given bread to take home. It is a wee bit... More

Wow, what a find. Away from the main beach road this is a magical place to visit. It even has it's own small Mani Museum; a must see. Owner and staff were fantastic and the food wasn't bad either! On the list for revisits when we return next year.

Can't fault the location. We booked a table and got one with the most fantastic views. Got served by lovely young waitress but were let down by the food. My son had the meatballs which were very dry and served with a minute jug of sauce. My partner said his chilli pork was bland and I can't remember what I... More

When we go on holiday we try to eat at as many places as possible.We ate here twice and the food was superb, the menu is not as vast as some of the other tavernas, but their specials are something 'special'. With the taverna being elevated the views and especially the sunsets are terrific.Service was excellent and prices inline with... More

Eaten here previously and impressed. On this occasion service poor and food average. The mixed Mezze starter was good, the bowl of chips unnecessary. Sea Bass with rice - excellent. The bottle of white wine was good. We were ignored then for 45 minutes, despite only 5 tables being occupied. We wanted dessert but left. A bill for 50 euros... More

It looked as if it would have different more traditional cousine but at the end we were not as impressed as we expected. The food was ok, the bread was very nice made inhouse. The best thing of this restaurant is the view you get when you seat on the terrace overlooking the bay.
