This was the first and only local restaurant we tried in Agia Pelagia, we had half board at our hotel restaurants so we didn't have much requirement to eat out but when we did, we went to Symposium. Its setting on the beach front is lovely, the service is great and we loved the food. We ordered a combo of... More

Beautiful Greek food. Staff very friendly and helpful - they will fillet the beautifully cooked freshly caught fish at the table. Once we discovered this gem we didn't eat anywhere else!

My wife and I had a great dinner in Symposium a few days ago. The owners gave us good recommendations for fresh fish and a free plate of fruit with some raki after we had finished. The prices were affordable, service was nice and calm and the atmosphere was very cozy. We would definitely go to Symposium again!

We were twice here. Very tasty cousine. On my point of view they have the specialization on seafood cousine. Very fresh seafoods. We took Greek salads, grilled octopus, fries squirds. Also there is very tasty pizza. Wonderful compliment from chef - focaccha with spices. Some more expensive than in other places near.
