Had some souvlaki, absolutely delicious. We had a chicken one and a pork one, great taste. Very fresh. Bread and olive dip to start which was also very tasty. Good beers and great service

I find it ironic that a restaurant that displays proudly its Trip advisor achievements and claims, can actually be so disparaging and disrespectful of customers. I guess the prime location and high frequency of tourists has made customer service not a priority. All staff looked...More

Exactly what we needed after a long day's walk! We had the mixed fish platter and the house white wine and enjoyed every minute.

Me and my family decided to visit the Amphora Restaurant for dinner. We were sat down by a displeased and unfriendly waiter and as we looked around we noticed that in fact every single member of staff working there had that exact same look. We...More

I am disappointed that your experience was so different than the hundreds of other clients we serve every day. Perhaps you were seated adjacent to Amphora in another establishment? Our neighbors are copying our style to syphon off customers. In any case, I hope your...More

Located right on the harbour the food was tasty and plentiful. Recommended to us and was worth dropping in for a meal. No hassle was key. We had the sardines, fried calamari and a Cretan salad....all nice but way too much for 2 people. Nice...More

Chose this restaurant as it was very picturesque, had good reviews but best of all no one pressurised us as we looked at the menu. It was always busy so shows that they do not need to hassle to fill the seats. Plenty of choice...More
