Tavern Tassos is your dream Greek Restaurant.It sits overlooking the bay right next to the sea. Watch the sun go down from your table.Wonderful food--try the Mousakka perhaps with the oven baked feta cheese to start.The Service is excellent ,attentive and efficient. My wife and I had the best evening of our stay in this restaurant--can't recommend it highly enough.... More

We visited this restaurant on our first night in samos. The food was of a high standard and good value for money. We did however try other restaurants in the area but could find nothing to compare with El Greco. Don't go home without visiting this restaurant. The atmosphere was nice and the staff very friendly and welcoming.

Family restaurant that once you visit you will not want to eat elsewhere. Tucked away just off the harbour front main road. Cosy and friendly outdoor eating. Try the lamb in oiled paper or beef in red wine sauce. The best.

We were the only people there, the owner was Greek and his wife a Dutch lady, they were there together with their 3 children. The kids were playing and of course... More

El Greco is everything you want in a Greek taverna, definitely worthy of a visit when you are on Samos. Although the menu is huge (often a trait of mediocre restaurants), there are some superb dishes. My friends and I had success selecting from the "Cooked Food" section; I'd recommend choosing from here. For a starter, we found the the... More
