This "taverna" is set on the road down to Lourdata beach. Well presented up-market taverna with a good selection of food on the menu BUT the prices are steep - decided to leave and find somewhere less expensive with just as good food.

Excellent food, good service and very friendly staff. I enjoyed the atmosphere, they even gave us blankets, as we were sitting outside. The grilled liver was my favourite

The Olive Lounge is not the cheapest restaurant but the food is of the highest quality. Starters are normally around €3-5 each and main courses are about €10 upwards, it all depends on what you are ordering. Something simple... More
