With lovely views over the water and sea breezes, one can pass the time pleasantly, sharing a light meal or enjoying an afternoon iced coffee. We stopped often at this charming cafe for the selection of Greek beers or to sample a new... More

Aplo is run by a wonderful young women, who works hard to maintain the quality of her food and drink. The beer selection is fantastic, if you are looking for Greek beers. The food choices are limited (on purpose since this is only a cafe). The cheeses are excellent. I got the burger and it was fantastic. It was well... More

He tried a dark porter and decided that that was likely to be the start of a tasting session of other beers over the remainder of our holiday. I had a lovely glass of house... More

We spent all nights in this beautiful cosy and smart interior designed bistro. The location on the beach is unity and the view of Pylos opposite and the Navarino bay. Nice faces & cool customers, everybody feels comfortable and as a part of a big cool family. Highly recommended for chill out & relaxation better than any therapy.

We had the burger to share, fresh orange juice, cappuccino, coffee, 1/2l rose and some ice cream – around €27. All served with a smile by Angel. She apologised for the delay serving the food (she was on her own and... More

Excellent food music and Angel has many great stories. Greek hospitality at its finest.!!! The best olives I have ever tasted from angels back yard. Hand picked and hand made. Feels more like your friends living room than a Restaraunt.
