Led to believe that the name has changed due to fairly petty legal issues but it's still under the same ownership and staff. See separate reviews under Nostos Taverna.

This is a nice restaurant that serves good wholesome food,not the flashiest in town but they cater for most tastes.l had the nightly special of Gammon delicious and my wife had steak which was also delicious. Ps the cheesecake and tiramisu were to die for.

Lovely Greek food. The meze is delicious but be warned it huge! Fresh fish & local wine are also a must. All the traditional Greek dishes are available & the service is very friendly. My favourite place to eat in alykes so far!

Attentive friendly staff who were able to answer questions about the food knowledgeably. The food was fantastic and very tasty, the only thing that lets this restaurant down is the close proximity to the road. It's now called Nostro tavern and just as good as before.

Thanks for feeding us over the last few weeks, lovely food and great staff, Siobhan and the crew are great and we will definitely be back in years to come. Tried a few different dishes and they were all huge and tasty. Banana split is a must!

Recommended to us by a couple who have been going to Alykes for the last 13 years and they were not wrong. The food is tasty and big portions. This a family run restaurant and you are made to feel most welcomed so much so that we booked the same table/time for the next evening.
