We were on a cruise and stopped at this restaurant. I had the grilled tuna and it was amazing! My husband had the dolmades and said they were very good! The service was impeccable and it was worth the stop. I highly recommend the Portside Taverna.

Stopped in after we docked and after a ten minute walk from the ship we stopped in and had a great lunch. Free wifi and a helpful and gracious hostess. Food was delicious and service was excellent.

Really nice position on the water, excellent fresh home cooked food, We shared a sea bream, salad and chips (no oven cooked potatoes on menu) really tasty and fresh, started with calamari, and butter beans in sauce. Definitely worth a visit.

We ate at this place last week and had one of the best pasta dishes ever! Rosa, the lady owner was very friendly and has a great sense of humour being a Greek New Yorker! Thanks for a great evening with good service.
