Came with my mum, and being of Cypriot heritage we agreed our trip wouldn't be complete without trying out a taverna or three. Pelagia's Yard definitely did not disappoint. I got the fried kalamari which was the day's special, plus grilled octopus, and my mum got souvlakia. The squid in particular was amazing, haven't had it that fresh in a long time. The staff were lovely as well, really friendly. And luckily we turned up on the night they had live bouzouki as well, so all in all we had a fantastic time.

Very good food, authentic, very tasty. Vegetables and fish just perfect. Delightful Greek deserts. And a beautiful garden for children to play! A “must” in this area. We came twice convinced by the very good food, cooked at home “ by my mother” as one of the nice ladies serving in this lovely place said.

Great Greek food! Familiar atmosphere and very friendly staff. Feels homely and cosy. We got a few “extras” during dinner such as an entree and fruit for dessert. We appreciated the small things like that.

Surprised to find this family run taverna with a very well balanced menu in such a tourist area. Yet their daily dishes proposals were fresh and tasty. Simple cooking based on great ingredients that are hard to find in other restaurants. The owners are the staff and they are treating you as guests, not customers. Will visit them again for sure.
