“hidden gem, a beautiful secret garden restaurant”

Galini Bar Restaurant
Price range: US$9 - US$21
Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 September 2017

This restaurant is right next to the Boutique Hotel Kentrikon.
It is really a unique place in Agios Ioannis which contains a rather boring list of mainstream touristic tavernas.
I would echo the comments of another reviewer since we had very similar experiences:
When we arrived we were greeted by Socrates and his friendly and smiley staff who welcomed us with open arms.
The beautiful secret garden provides such a charming and relaxing environment. Although it is just off the main street offers a much needed alternative dinner option especially since the busy street by the seaside contain mainly 'typical - touristic tavernas
The music was subtle and the whole atmosphere was understated and just right
All dishes we tried were excellent- generous portions on time and presented and cooked to perfection,
I can not recommend this restaurant more .Keep up the good work!

We have been there three times in the last two months that we have been staying in Agios Ioannis.
Every time we have been there the food has been delicious.
We have tried almost everything on the menu as we have taken guests there.
The atmosphere is very pleasant as the setting is in a garden.
Socrates is most welcoming, always greets you with a smile.
We have particularly enjoyed salads. The Haloumi salad is my favourite and they use ingredients from their garden.
The sweet and sour chicken with fragrant rice is excellent, as were the pork medallions with a choice of two sauces.
It is certainly our choice when want something different.

Wow, where do I start. As a former restaurant manager I was from the start very impressed!
As we walked up the stairs we were greeted by Socrates who welcomed us with open arms.
As soon as we sat down I was taken away by the beautiful secret garden restaurant, just off the main strip it was a welcome sight from the busy street down below.
The music was classy and got us right in the mood.
So too the food - we had the tastiest food I have had in Greece so far.
All courses were presented and cooked to perfection.
I can not recommend this restaurant more especially in the location as everything else around here is totally standard and run of the mill.
Thank you for an amazing night guys.
Keep up the good work!

The Tripadvisor page was only opened a week ago, but no doubt great reviews will be coming in. The food was really fresh and somewhat lighter than in most run of the mill tabernas. Had a nice mojito served in a jam jar! Go go go !
