The food is amazing, location is superb! The high rating is well deserved. The restaurant is very nice, 1 cozy backside restaurant for a more relaxing me al, and the front side is more of a beachlouge with music. Nice beach, good drinks & great staff!

Our restaurant is operating since 1982 in Port of Karlovasi and it is a family business. We are open from May to September after 18:00 every day. Our customers are locals and recurring tourists from all over the world (mainly from USA,Germany,Holland,Canada and Belgium). Our goal is to keep the quality of our services in high standards and our customers always satisfied.
We had a delicious dinner here. Lovely place with a very friendly owner. She recommended us the authentic Greek dishes that we wouldn't have ordered and it was absolutely delicious. Would love to be back!

Home made greek traditional food,fresh fishes,hand made ice-cream,fresh local meet,home made wine and a special panoramic view at the Agian.
We had read the reviews of this restaurant and were prepared to be impressed. The food was good, the views excepitional, but the service was indifferent. The young man, the owner's son, spent more time on Facebook than attending to his customers.

Stimulate your tastebuds next to the rolling waves of the Aegean. Enjoy delicious cuisine, caringly prepared by our master chef.
If you are spending some time on Samos island you should visit this place! Fish or meat it doesen't matter, we tasted both and were great. As for the prices, for a place you can see and hear the waves right next to you are very good in comparison to other taverns by the sea.

There was really nothing positive about our dining in the restaurant. This was the restaurant you could climb the stairs to from the Potami Waterfalls.
-There was a big pile of dog turd in the middle of the restaurant. Nobody really seemed to care to clean it off.
-The man and woman working there seemed to be pretty bored. Not much customer service to talk about.
-They gave us (two people sitting opposite each other) just one menu. I imagine they must have had more menus available, as there were only about a dozen customers there.
-There was only grill food available for ordering, though there were other dishes presented in the menu. We found that out when trying to order something else than grill food.
-There was wrapping paper stuck on a pork souvlaki. It seemed like they took the souvlaki out of the freezer, took the wrapping off and then heated the meat, but had accidentaly left some of the paper on the meat.
-They put oregano on everything: salad, french fries, souvlaki...
I would not recommend anyone to eat in this restaurant. The salad was the only eatable option there.

Visited with family for dinner on a Saturday. Had a great blues band playing which really entertained us.
The place was busy, but not completely full. The waiters were most helpful, and efficiently carried out their tasks. However, the kitchen staff was terribly slow. We received the appetizers a full 45 minutes after ordering, and the main courses were another 30 minutes wait on top of that.
Portions are small (with the exception of pasta). Food generally tasty. Restaurant is a bit pricey, although their are trying to communicate to the clients that they are not.

Samos has many nice sightseeing-hotspots. And this one is combined with a very good restaurant.
The view over the south of Samos is breathtaking. When you enjoy this view with a glass of wine and the italian inspired greek food (the cook/one of the owner worked in puglia and sicily) you will have a great culinary experience.
We will surely come back!

well if you are a traveller you should find and search both in forums of trip advisor and in the comments. definitely local comments are crucial.. and in small places like the Greek Islands even a minimum or hidden politely negative comment on a business should be considered sth bigger as it is said..
to the topic.. the intro was crucial to let you know that as a local i can compare and contrast in a year long basis on quality and price.. meaning winter and summer... meaning the specific restaurant is open all year long.. and meaning it is the best in QUALITY of materials and cleaning on year long... in winter locals even from the other side of the island drive all the way to karlovassi for their sunday lunch or dinner meal.
tip for tourists in Samos:
Unfortunately, Karlovassi is not the Mekka of tourism in Samos, but if you are a holiday schedule freak I have a nice option for you... 1 full day has to be in Karlovassi... swimming in hippies beach bar cafe (chil out and liberal) place in potami, before going to the beach visit the Waterfalls of potami (if you eat there then try the omelette)... in the lunch time eat sth to keep you for the day in the stunning also restaurant of hippies just behind in their garden, after in the evening at 19.00 you can go to eat your dinner at dionysos and visit the square of meseo karlovassi in where the Greek Revolution started in Samos island in the 8th of May.. after your dinner go to watch the sunset in Potami beach as it is the place the sun sets in front of you in samos..

This tavern is by the sea and in the evening you eat looking out over the sea as the sun goes down. The food is delicious and there is a wide choice of freshly caught fish, plus the usual meat dishes. The view is breath-taking and it's in a very peaceful spot - quite difficult to find as the signpost is in Greek. What made the evening even more special for me was that when I mentioned I had Coeliac Disease and had to keep to a gluten-free diet, they knew what I was talking about! They had a family member who had been diagnosed as a Coeliac so knew exactly what was involved and could advise me on what to eat with confidence.
