Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We ate here twice during our two week holiday after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. It wasn't the easiest place to find but once you know where it is, you'll never forget. Our first trip here, we dropped lucky in getting a table as...it was so busy...I would recommend booking. It is in a perfect location for watching the beautiful Petra sunsets so ask for a table at the front of the restaurant. Now to the food. It was absolutely top notch, all home made and fresh and very good value for money. We had the dolmades, prawn saganaki, beef kokkinisto and meatballs along with a carafe of house wine. All were lovely and this along with the location and very friendly staff prompted us to book a second visit before we left that night. I hope to return to Petra some day and this will certainly be one of the first places I would go to eat.More

Delicious home made food - the real deal. Very popular especially at sunset. Many women go work there are volunteering - well done a real community feel to it.

We returned to this taverna 6 times in a 14 night stay- it was that good! Such friendly service,wonderful atmosphere and excellent food. The house red wine was the best in the resort and very reasonably priced. We would recommend the small cheese pies or...octopus in red wine (scary but tasty!) as starters. Also loved the lamb fricassee, pastitsio and beef with aubergines for main meals. But rest assured everything we tasted was delicious and some of the best food we have ever tasted in our 20 years of holidaying in Greece. Efharisto!More

Hello from the Women's Coop of Petra. Can you be a little more specific please and tell us what was the problem with the food and what food you had so we can try and fix it? Thank you

Ambiance: 5, there is a good sea view from the balcony, we were there for lunch, it might be very good for sunset though. Service: 5, Very friendly Food: 5, you can see how the food is prepared and cooked, octopus cooked in white wine...sauce is good, rice in stuffed zucchini flower is a bit under-coked. Pricing: 5 Warning: do not trust Google maps to find the place, it directs you to Kantina, which is not the place you would be looking for, just turn the corner and go upstairs.More

Always accommodating, friendly service and the best food possible. We spent a month in Petra during August/September 2022 and many evenings at the restaurant overlooking the Aegean Sea watching the sunset. The food is so good you don't know when to stop. Loved our time...in Petra.More

This restaurant has a long established reputation for good food and has been a recommended 'go to' place by holiday guides for many years. We can see why. We opted for traditional Greek dishes of Greek salad, beef stifado and stuffed pepper/tomato. Quality is evident...throughout, salads are huge with lots of unusual extras such as pickled vegetables. All the food was well prepared very substantial and delicious (no frozen chips here) and house wine in a carafe was much better than the norm. Service polite and friendly even though they were extremely busy. Booking is strongly recommended.More

I wanted to support this place so we made a point of having lunch here on the day we visited Petra. If you didn’t know it was there you could easily miss it. It’s above Kantina with the entrance door round the back on the...shops side, not the sea and supermarket side (steep flight of stairs to consider if you have mobility issues) We were lucky to be able to sit on a balcony to ourselves with views over the seafront. Service was prompt and friendly. We had mixed dips, stuffed pumpkin flowers and Greek salad. The food was fresh and delicious, and reasonably priced. It was busy with locals and there is an extensive menu I would have liked to have explored in the evening. Perhaps another time 🤞🏻More

Fabulous food as always, three visits this holiday and will definitely return. Food is amazing, authentic and tasty- the staff are really friendly and helpful. We first came here in 2005 and the food is just as good. Tonight, cheese pies, stuffed pumpkin flowers, fava...and courgette. Mains were Lamb chops, gemista ( stuffed veggies) and grilled prawns. Tiny bit of free cake to finish!More

We have must have ordered half of the sea food section of the menu and they were so kind to assist us with their suggestions. Long story short, try anything and you will not regret. Very welcoming and warm restaurant. Very good prices too!

My husband and I have been visiting lesvos for 20 years and always look forward to eating here. We booked a balcony table for 8.00 and arrived on time. After being ignored by the waitress for 45 minutes while she tended to a greek couple...next to us we asked a manager if someone could take our order. Our starter arrived about 20 minutes later and it was really good. Our main course arrived at 9.25. At the same time the waiter started rearranging the 3 tables around us and a party of 10 people arrived. They had obviously booked the whole balcony but because no-one had taken our order we had only just recieved our food! They were squeezing past us and knocking our table. It was really uncomfortable and squashed. Not their fault at all!! The balcony is really small so we rushed our meal and asked for the bill. We expressed our dismay at being basically pushed out by such a large table and the manager was extremely rude and said if we had arrived on time (which we had!) We would have been gone. We will never eat here again after such a terrible experience which really is a shame!More
