This place has a GOOD VIBE! The location is breathtaking and the view to the sea will relax and inspire you. This restaurant will offer top quality food with one of the biggest selections of wine and an excellent service.I would advise you to book a table, especially after June. This place is a must for local and repeated visitors... More

My mum and I visited here for a drink during a hot afternoon and decided to book for the following evening. I requested the table right overlooking the beach. I got told that was fine as I was the first in the book. When we arrived we were sat at a different table and there were 2 couples sitting at... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Philosophia. We are very sorry for the confusion with your table request, we always ask our waiters not to promise specific tables, for this reason, as they can be changed around depending on numbers reserving. The table you requested is usually set up for 4 or more people as there is more... More

This Taverna is situated overlooking the beach and has the most amazing views, especially at sunset. The menu choice and quality of food are great and we have always had an excellent dinner there. It is slightly more expensive than some of the other Taverna's in Pefkos but it is well worth it. Staff are welcoming and attentive. Highly recommend... More

The view over the bay in early evening is spectacular. But cannot also fail to commend the food which was superb and included the best moussaka we had whilst on the island. Other dishes were also fantastic and the taster plate of puddings was a standout! The staff were very helpful and friendly.

We have just returned from 2 weeks in Pefkos. We dined at the Philosophia 4 times. The food is excellent, matched by the service and location. Cannot wait til we return.

We just went here for a lunchtime drink but I've heard the food is good. The view is awesome and the staff friendly and everything is very clean. They also do cocktails which would be nice as the sun sets.

The restaurant is in a beautiful location however we found the food to be average and very expensive. My calamari starter was so thick and chewy I could not eat it. The two cats who joined us enjoyed it though! My husbands starter was good but both main courses we would describe as average. The bill was almost twice as... More

Had dinner here with my daughter on an early September evening. Attracted by the reviews which in my opinion are very fair on location, but overstate the food quality - it was good, and fair value, but not brilliant: certainly not the best meal we had in Pefkos, though the best located, and also bettered by a meal we had...

Visited the Taverna earlier in the day to make a booking and arrange for a table with good ocean views. Enjoyed excellent service and good generous portions of food and I particularly enjoyed the Lamb Klefticos. There is a good selection of dishes and the tavern was busy in late September.
