We stumbled upon this little gem of a taverna accidentally and it is the best accident we have ever had! The waiter was enthusiastically attentive and recommended the Daily Special, Moussaka, which we ultimately ordered. He also approved of our appetizer choice, skordalia (garlic potato...dip) and the Horiatiki salad (traditional Greek salad of cucumber, tomato, green pepper, red onion, and feta cheese). ALL of the food was sublime and the waiter, an elderly gentleman, was adorable! The evening was capped off with a visit by two geese… only in Greece!More

Simple taverna with amazing food and service. Mostly visited by locals and people from the marina. Real affordable food and the day plates are always a good choice.

Great selection of traditional dishes using lots of local produce. Don’t miss out on some of the simpler dishes - beetroot, boiled greens, green beans etc. Salted cod with garlic sauce a particular favourite of mine. Wine by the jug - all recommended. Very helpful...and attentive waiter. Thanks for the lovely melon at the end of the meal.More

The food at Argo’s is excellent and that alone compensates for the lack of a view. So if your up for a nice beer and good food that’s the place to go. I do wonder if anyone else apart from us is reminded of the...classic “Dinner for one” while waiting for the food enjoying the beer 😜More

There’s a reason why this is top on the list! If you’re in the city, be sure not to miss this place. Just at the Harbour, the moment you step in, there’s like a warm welcome. The staff made his recommendations from starter to the...Main and the food definitely was a surprise. One could say, the best Aubergine plate one has ever had. And that is no exaggeration. Had a lovely sea food meal which the staff also recommended the wine to go with it. Amazing wine with even amazing food! Came during busy hours for dinner but the service was excellent, efficient and fast!More
