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.

Reviewed 20 September 2022 via mobile

Today we hiked Old Navarino Castle & Voidakilia Bay. We were in desperate need of refreshments after so chose to stop here for a drink and a snack. Wow! The hospitality is lovely, they have an incredible 6% cloudy, hoppy & tropical IPA called Sourmena...and the Al Pastor Burrito was sensational! Spicy, full of flavour and the fries were what we in the UK call chunky chips. Everything about this visit was amazing! Thank you! 🙏More

On the Gialova waterfront, Ionis serves all the drinks you would expect from a high-end bar from draught Mythos to fresh orange juice. Pleasant and efficient service from Kristina & Co.

Ionis is located ideally to Gialova, perfect for the summer in Messinia. Must try ciabatta! The owner, Kostas, one the most hospitable people you could ever meet. True sample of success when you love what you are doing and Vice versa!

Before i proceed with my review, it is important to say that i live and work the last years in the wider area of Gialova and i have multiple times visited Ionis cafe. With one word, it perfectly balances quality and price. As i am...very strict with tasty and qualitative coffee, i must admit that they do serve maybe the most tasteful coffee in Gialova (Sugar cafe serves amazing coffee too). You should definitely try their hot afogato coffee, hot espresso served with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. Their catalogue is full of tasteful sweet and salt options in very reasonable prices. I enjoy their hot sandwiches and their crunchy waffles served with nutella and ice cream. Moreover, they do offer complimentary fast internet (Wi-Fi) while i must admit that their staff is adorable and look after all go their guests.More

A beautiful place right on the water outside with excellent furnishing and design inside. Ideal for everyone who wish to take a coffee or snack right on the waterfront of Gialova.

Everything is great about ionis: the service, the food, the choices of the drinks (cocktails are great!!!) and the view. Nice to sit at the beach side and have lunch while the kids play in the sand. We also watched the soccer world championship here....They had it on a big tv.More

It was nice to have a coffee and have an easy lunch. The lady takes good care of her collection of cactus plants. We even got some plants from her to plant in our garden. They are already planted.

En route back from Methoni to the Westin Costa Navarino Resort, my wife and myself stopped at the pretty seaside village of Gialova. I’m glad we did as we not only enjoyed our walk along the waterfront but stopped at the Ionis Cafe for drinks....One reason for doing so was that it was the only outlet where my wife could enjoy a mint tea and - as I can testify - it also serves excellent coffee. My large Latte and my wife’s mint tea were only 5 Euros which - in this day and age - offered excellent value for money! Strongly recommended as any visitors are most unlikely to be disappointed!More
