Lovely setting, nice food, however spoiled by the owner and staff being far too pushy and overbearing. A plate of fish that we had not ordered appeared on the table, we told the waiter to take it back as we did not want it nor had we placed an order for it, this ,was met with a lot of huffing...

Great location, but the food is mediocre compared to others nearby and the staff are far too pushy. Overpriced and also try to charge you for things not ordered.

Wish I had seen reviews first as I wouldn't have bothered. We went in for a glass of wine and ended up with a €50 meal! Its unfortunate thathe feels the need to do this as the food/location is good enough for him to make an honest income. If you do go here, be firm and don't be conned into... More

You are guaranteed a great meal and a good time with Christos and Nikos at the fagopotion. The food is excellent, I recommend the special lamb shank they serve on Sunday and the stifado. The meat is just melt in the mouth. My mum loved this place when she was alive and we went there to celebrate her birthday after... More

Arrived at our villa midday after a very early start from UK and went down to the village for a light lunch. Bamboozled by offers from the Patron , we both basically realised what he was up to but too weary to stop him in mid flow! Service slowish but food OK. Did not return. Bit of a rascal but... More

I wish I had read the reviews before eating at this restaurant. When we tried to place our order Christos told us "I have something better for you". He pushed too much food on us that we did not want and didn't bring us what we ordered, but to make matters worse he over charged us. I don't know how... More

Visited 15 months ago and just had to come again. To Fagopotion did not let us down. As good as before, great Greek food, great fun, great hospitality. Will go back while we're here more than once!

It is such a shame that this Taverna has such an overbearing money grabbing owner who almost press gangs you off the street or the water to eat there. There are are a small handful of tavernas in this great little 'village' but only one with a chap with a large paunch who almost takes over your menu choices when... More

This was our second visit to sleepy San Stefanos. We ate at this Taverna on our 1st night and weren't disappointed with the quality of the food. Staff are great and friendly. There was however a strange atmosphere between the staff and the owner Christos. There were times when the place was almost empty, when neighbouring restaurants were really busy.... More

Description
The most accomplished of the waterside tavernas here, Fagopotion has an enviable reputation for its traditional recipes, fresh wild fish caught around the Diapóndia islets and fair prices given a location in the heart of posh ‘Kensington-on-Sea’. Signature dishes include fluffy, non-greasy three-cheese saganáki, succulent, pork-based bekrí mezé, baby squid in late spring, rabbit stew, chard-based tsigarélli (versus the usual wild greens) and melt-in-the-mouth octopus (Christos secret is blanching prior to grilling). Orange cake on the house for dessert.As recommended by Telegraph Travel in 2012....
