We have stayed on Agia Pelagia two years running and have sampled the food from several of the Tavernas, Le Gourmet is the one we have returned to most often. A family run concern, offering a wide ranging menu as well as traditional Greek cuisine, Recommend the souvlaki. On the last evening, I really fancied a pizza and it was delicious - crisp base, loads of tomato and veg and melted cheese topping. I reckon I am a reasonable cook myself and this was one of the best I have sampled. We enjoyed all our meals and noticed that we were seeing other diners also returning the same week at the end of September 2016.

I've rated this 1 out of 5 simply because there wasn't an option for '0'. Pizza's were frozen, soggy based and topped with overly excessive amounts of awful tasting cheese, artificial ham and mushrooms out of a bottle. In short, the toppings looked like a sloppy cheesy mess that no one on the table could go beyond a bite of it. The manager admitted that the pizza's were frozen and agreed to remove them off the bill whilst making up for it by discreetly charging us 7 Euros for stale bread (all bread we had elsewhere was free of charge). The chicken pasta was bland and microwaved and the spaghetti carbanara had an after taste of gone off cheese. The only dish that was good was the Greek salad which is impossible to get wrong. When the bill came, the waiter saw that all the dishes had barely been eaten and did not ask what was wrong or what he could do to better the experience. All in all, the worst food we experienced and would never go back.

Frozen pizzas topped with jarred vegetables and ham from a packet. Stale bread and artificial ingredients in everything. Avoid at all costs, or stick to Greek salad and chips.

It is a nice and spacious taverna. We have experienced very good service. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. The food is nicely serviced and is delicious. We enjoyed listening to nice Greek music (we found it nice that since there were a lot of tourists they did not put the English music, but stayed with the Greek one).
I definitely recommend this place!
