Gitoniko is a good specimen of the Greek taverna. Fresh, good quality materials. Greek menu, good implementation with no surprises. In a crowded evening the smell of fried oil followed us for hours afterwards. Smoking is allowed inside (BAD!). The owners are very friendly and helpful.

The food here was very tasty but the portions were really small. The atmosphere of the restaurant was warm although it was really packed. We ordered a portion of lemon chicken and papoutsakia with some rice as a side.

We ate a good meal at this taverna, hidden away from the street upstairs on a terrace. Although there is no view, the food was all authentic, fresh and tasty. You can see what is on offer in the kitchen as well as select from the menu. Service excellent.

The Taverna Gitoniko is a fairly standard Greek restaurant. The rooftop is nice, but doesn't afford a view of anything except surrounding buildings. Service was fine, especially considering the large groups of tourists present. The menu is what you would expect; we had country lamb baked in parchment, with potatoes, tomatoes and feta- it was tasty but there were way... More

We went beginning of September, and the place was well visited. The service was a bit slow, but the food (fresh fish) was very good.

This restaurant is mainly situated on a terrace above the food preparation area. Many of the dishes are on display and its old Greek style homely restaurant with a genuinely warm welcome.The name I think means neighbourhood in Greek and it feels like a genuine local restaurant that has been there for years.It has the usual Greek menu items but...

We took a recommendation from our apartment host and went there this evening for our first meal in Hydra. We chose to share two of the specials on offer Country Lamb and Meat wrapped in cabbage leaf. We combined this with a simple green salad. We arrived about 7.30pm and there were already 4 tables taken on the upstairs verandah,... More

We ate here three times in all. The owners are lovely as are the waiters. On the first visit my husband asked when they would have stifado on the menu and was then told they would make it especially for him on the Sunday, which they did! Would highly recommend.
