Yes Barba Giorgis is in my blood and part of who I am. The first time I set foot ... rather cradle at Barba Giorgis, I was a couple of months old in the early 1960s. Certainly I was not yet ready to taste fish, but I did indulge in goat yogurt (go to Magginas at Kalivia if you are a fan of such succulent yogurt as I am - taste the goat feta as well) - mind you, cow milk was non existent these times. My dad Soulis got to know the place in the early 1950's when he would take a break returning from hunting with his brother George and other friends. The taverna was held by Barba Giorgis, i.e. "Uncle George", and his wife, and ownership continued with the same family for 3 generations, whom I got to know and befriend. We nicknamed the place "Mr Fish". Initially it had a small kitchen (the front part of what you find now where the cooking fireplace is), a small dining room (what is now the entrance and a room right behind it) with a fireplace for the winter times, and a huge outside area, half under a patio (a part of what you can see now). The building was all white washed typical of the times to reduce vermin from entering the house. It is still white! The food was simple serving fresh fish (fried or grilled), home made excellent retsina wine, meze notably its tzatziki with yugourt from Magginas, and salads notably the Greek one with succulent tomatoes not to forget feta from Magginas. The olive oil has come form Peloponissos southwards from Nafplion: it is light and tasty. After more than 50 years of serving exactly the same dishes with the same quality, taste, zeal, friendliness, in a cozy and quiet environment, it is always an emotional moment to go back, not only because of the owners and my history with this place, but because I know that what I will eat will be a treat for my body and my soul.

The food quality is not bad, but it's overpriced (plus medium to small portions) for a souvlaki place. I've eaten several times there, but I would not visit again.Î¥ÏÎµÏÏÎ¹Î¼Î·Î¼ÎÎ½Î¿ Î³ÎµÎ½Î¹ÎºÎ¬,Î»Î¿Î³Ï ÏÎ¿ÏÎ¿Î¸ÎµÏÎ¯Î±Ï.

Saronida Restaurant !!! A pleasant place to be!! Come and taste our greek flavours and more! Join us...
We were a family of nine who had late dinner in Saronida Restaurant. A good menu with great choice which included greek traditional dishes. Everything was fine: great food and warm welcomed service. Really good value for the money! We really recommend this restaurant for everyone who is searching for good traditional greek food off the tourist track!
Great Greek food including souvlaki and kabobs. Chicken, pork, beef trays/pita/gyros were all great for adults and kids. Careful: the Giant Pita is huge! Enough for two meals. Wait staff communicate fine in English. We have not come in the evening but it is packed!

I really enjoyed this night! Excellent food, world class service, fantastic location, two great singers that really made this night unforgettable.The prices were on the higher spectrum but I guess fresh fish and -quality - live music deserve that. I highly recommend that you go on a full moon night since nothing beats the experience.

Good, friendly & nice place to stop by between Athens & Cape Sounion. The foods were delicious. But it was quite slow in serving the varieties of dishes such as bread, salad, vegetables, shrimp, meat, dessert. The interval between each dish was quite long. After all the sightseeing, we were tired already, we just wanted to eat and go back & rest in the hotel, not waiting & waiting for each dish to slowly come out.

When you drive to the southern coast of Athens on your way to Sounio this is one of the best place to eat. Very friendly staff fresh produce and fish brilliantly prepared not in fancy way just good food . Only draw back is its on the wrong side of the coastal road but who cares foods great.

We stayed just up the road from this well-regarded local restaurant. After ordering our food, the children played in the small playground outside. Tasty breads and dips arrived, and not long after the mains. Cool Greek beer washed it all down. The hosts offered us some baclava as a courtesy after dinner, which was appreciated. In all, our experience was a very positive one, enhanced by good food, attentive staff and clean facilities.

Letâs not focus on the plague of bad food Iâve eaten across Greece because we finally found a Gem. This place serves amazing salads and fantastic meat which seems hard enough to find but added to this the staff are charming. Itâs our kitchen for the stay as I canât stomach much more ordinary. Definitely worth a visit. Just had kebabs with pistachio and the meat comes tender and perfect. The beer with name like piercing I couldnât stop drinking.
