Appears to be a traditional Greek Taverna from the outside with maybe a bit too much kitsch taking half of the front of the site. Food quite adequate and reasonably priced, however the staff really could do with a course on customer care, and the...toilets need a total overhaul.More

Fantastically warm and genuine service! The food (I had the octopus) was well made and tasted nicely. Traditional decorations. A bit unfortunate that it has the main road almost beside the restaurant.

A cozy place in Hersonissos. We've tasted octopus, calamari and snails. Seems it was the best octopus ever. Very nice service. Would get back for sure!

My husband and I visited on two occasions, one for lunch and one evening, on both occasions were welcomed and looked after, staff are very accommodating and lovely. We had an omelette for lunch, very tasty. Came along one evening, again a warm welcome, you...couldn't ask for more. Food was freshly prepared and really good. Prices were very good. Certainly a must visit. Beautiful surroundings.More

We came back for our last meal on the island as this was a truly super place. It’s a family run taverna which allows you to access simple, tasty, traditional Greek food. We had the baked feta, dolmades and chicken souvlaki again! All delicious. Service...by Poppy is warm, efficient and friendly. Can’t recommend this place enough.More

First of all many thanks once again to the family running this amazing place. Guys, seriously now don't look too much and listen to me, this restaurant has the kindest staff/best food in the whole Star Beach area and i did not participate with too...many expectations but omg the food is so so good and what authentic Greek cuisine. From the souvlaki,saganaki to that Godly divine apple tart with ice-cream...just try first and then leave a good review as they are amazing!!More

Don't think you would have a problem getting a table, especially out of peak season. We just turned up & there were tables available & this was end June/early July season. Hope you enjoy.
