We had heard about this restaurant the last time we visited Arillas but never made it .
So this year we were determined to go. So off we set from Arillas. It was all up hill and even though it was 7 in the evening it was still hot. The bonus was the views back across Arillas and the sea . Absolutely breathtaking .
On arrival the lady who runs it got us some water to help us cool off as we checked out the menu.
We had the meze which was mushrooms ham & cheese cooked in the oven . I then had Briami (veg in a tomato sauce & feta ) my hubby had lamb chops. The food was mouthwatering . So fresh and tasty . The Night Owl is also famous for its homemade deserts . So it would have been rude not to have one !! My hubby is a real chocolate lover so had the double chocolate brownie and I had the Apple & walnut cake . Needless to say we now know why they are famous for their deserts . We also bought a bottle of homemade chilli & chocolate sauce.
As we got up to leave Linda who owns the Night Owl asked how we were getting back . We said we were going to walk ." Oh no " she said "my son will take you " and bless him he did . Now that is service and appreciation of your customers . Next time we go to Arillas we will make the trek again. It is so worth it .

The Night Owl is one of two "must visits" I have when holidaying in San Stefanos as the food is superb.

Linda and Nick are lovely hosts and the food speaks for itself.

You just can't get better food than the Belly Pork, and it tastes even better with handmade Night Owl Chilli Sauce.

The portions are really big.

The desserts are made by the sons of the proprietors and I recommend the Cheesecake - amazing!

we went here by mistake after trying to get into another taverna in afionis that was full. this is a slightly oddball looking place full of owls and gourds and run by to lovely american women, look for the stars and stripes alongside the greek flag and a moped hanging half way up an olive tree, apparently someone had one too many ouzos.
anyhow the menu is fairly small but the portions are usa size, three of us had chicken dinners and now theres a worldwide shortage at kfc !
definitely worth a visit and make sure you give snoopy the dog a scratch

Lovely traditional taverner with grapes hanging above, very rustic setting just how you would imagine a taverner to be. Very friendly staff upon arrival. I had the lamb chops which were amazing and succulent and my wife enjoyed the belly pork. Amazing cheesecake for dessert rounded off this lovely experience. Will definitely return. The only issue we had was the drive there and back from agios stefanos was a bit rough as there are many potholes, but the trip was well worth it.
