Good food and friendly service in very attractive surroundings. The staff were helpful and accommodating, even though we hadn't reserved. We spent an enjoyable evening here.

Excellent quality of food and choice. Maybe had too much starter and found difficult to finish the main course! Very friendly service.

We didn't know if Simos Taverna was good but it just happened to be the closest restaurant from our hotel so we went there one night and it was great.

Recommended to us by our hotel (The Reverie). We eat here twice and on both occasions had wonderful meals. The staff were attentive and I would recommend eating in the first floor terrace.
