It is quite nice to sit in the village square and have a dinner. Sam is usually taking orders for each table himself. Unfortunately the falafel and eggplant salad was under seasoned and therefore a little bit bland. Tabbouleh is worth to try. Greek style...More

Wonderful romantic lunch - managed to get in touch before hand and they put some lovely flowers on the table as an extra surprise. Food delicious. Shame no humus available. Lovely service.

After having visited Eresos for swimming many times over the last 10 years, we are always disappointed with the food options. The options by the water are very touristy and our experiences have not always been the best! Over the last 2-3 years we have...More
