If you want to have good meat is the place to go! Elias, one of the owners, is there to serve you and fulfill all your desires! Friday and Saturday there is live music also! If you are in Poros, don't miss it!!

This tavern is situated in the less visited parts of Poros which reminds you of an old village square. The food is excellent, you will find traditional Greek recipes, but also fantastic felafel! They also serve fresh fish and grilled meat. I had a great meal! I just hoped they didn't smoke inside. The prices were reasonable. I will definitely... More

When you are on the island you must explore the maze of streets above the waterfront, start at the steps that take you up the clock tower and then simply meander. You'll get lost repeatedly, but the views, tiny houses and experience will be worth it. Somewhere hidden in there is a small main square with a butchers, couple of... More

from the main sea level "high street" behind the cinema, you walk up and there it is, in a local charming neighbourhood owned and ran by migrants. Service was very good and so were the tasty dishes that we ordered (sucking pig). It seems to be a favourite eatery considering that it was packed full. cost around 20 euros per... More

The restaurant is located on the left side at the beginning of the harbor, on a steep hill, but it is really worth the walk up. The only downside is that it does not have a view, it has like an enjoyable garden ambiance. The service is fast and very efficient although the place was packed. You have to visit... More

Lovely traditional taverna, specialising in meat, but not exclusively. The newly declared vegetarian in the family was equally satisfied! For me, the Γουρουνόπουλο (Suckling Pig) was simply the best ever! A bit oh a hike up some steps from the main port area, but not too bad, and well worth a visit.

This restaurant is located away from the busy port area and tables are set under a large plane tree which provides lots of shade. Food was average. The service was slow. My meal came after my other 3 family members finished their meals so this restaurant was a bit disappointing.

We found this little place after visiting the clock tower and were the only people there. It was about 3pm and I think this place is busy in the evenings. The food we ordered tasted fresh and the portions were very generous. The young lad serving us was very friendly. We would happily go back.
