Reviews on Greek food in Lesbos, Northeast Aegean Islands, Greece. Lesbos (/ˈlɛzbɒs/, US: /ˈlɛzboʊs/; Greek: Λέσβος Lesvos, pronounced [ˈlezvos]), sometimes referred to as Mytilene after its capital, is a Greek island located in the northeastern Aegean Sea. It has an area of 1,633 km (631 sq mi) with 320 kilometres (199 miles) of coastline, making it the third largest island in Greece. It is separated from Turkey by the narrow Mytilini Strait and in late Palaeolithic/Mesolithic times was joined to the Anatolian mainland before the end of the last glacial period.

Absolutely fantastic. We were tipped off to come to Gorgona, and then one of the waiters said we would not find better food anywhere else... Well we were happy to believe him and thoroughly endorse his opinion 100%.Superb food in a friendly family restaurant and reasonable prices; great value for money due to the high quality.Come to Gorgona. Just pass by all the other restaurants to get here. You will be delighted. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is really worth looking for and booking one of the outside tables, where you can see amazing sunsets. The food is really good, though when it’s busy the service can be slow. We ate twice and had fabulous food on both occasions. The prawns were amazing. Would like to return one day.

We went to Anaxos Beach on the last evening of our six day holiday in Lesvos. Here we wanted to try seafood at Aggelos restaurant by the sea. We ordered grilled sardines, fresh grilled calamari, grilled shrimps, salad and homemade wine. Each one was delicious. The sardines in particular were so fresh and beautifully cooked that we didn't even need to debunk. The calamari was also very tasty and fresh. Restaurants with female operators are doing very well. Giving wet lemon wipes in Greece is not very common in all tavernas so it was also very good. Of course, watermelon served at the end of the meal is a stylish gesture. If you happen to be in the area, you should definitely stop by this restaurant, which has a lot of variety besides seafood.Sent from my iPad

Lots of options on the menu and food all fresh and made to order. Really enjoyed the gyros here. Very busy at lunchtime however, we waited a long time to receive our food as there were so many customers and takeaway orders.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who is a regular visitor to Lesvos, and also I noted it's on the Happy Cow App as being suitable for vegans too. I was really keen to visit and certainly was not disappointed. Having read reviews on this page too, I decided it was prudent to book ahead which we did and secured a booking for early evening. The location was perfect with a light breeze under the trees. I was glad of a glass of water having walked up the steep path (albeit a short walk) and was very happy to spend the next hour or so being looked after by the Tropicana team who were superb. I ordered the Gigantes beans and they were absolutely amazing. I heard the lamb chops were superb too. We had watermelon/ice cream (complementary) afterwards, plus a small glass of some sort of liquor - again, a lovely touch and not something we had anywhere else on our trip. There were a few cats around the dining area who were keen for any tidbits but they weren't a problem at all. The woman serving us (Taxia) was superb and a real asset to the place. I am so glad I visited and if I ever visit Lesvos again I will definitely eat at Tropicana again. Thank you so much for such a memorable meal.....now to try to recreate the Gigantes at home :)

Luckily for us, this lovely traditional taverna was right on our doorstep.. We ate here a few times and the food and wine served were always delicious. The Stamna was the best I had ever tasted in Greece... ever... Service was always with a smile and the place was always busy with local families and some tourists. A beautiful and relaxing setting, a must if staying in Anaxos.

Had not had a break for two years, so it was imperative that we found somewhere where both myself and my wife could relax, all spot on, wherever I was within the establishment there was always another cold beer waiting to be served to me, highlight was with my wife, she has a very specific eating problem, the chef sat down with her and discussed her options, needless to say it was a complete success, only for the 2nd time in over 7 years that she has eaten something and it has stayed down, an absolute triumph:)

Reviewed By Melanie037

We visited this restaurant on our final night in Molyvos as I’d read the great reviews. Perhaps I was expecting too much. It was friendly and had lovely views but more expensive than other restaurants serving very similar food. I had the Gigantes - giant beans but not giant portion (yes I admit it’s a starter but at other places I got a bigger portion as a starter). It’s clear that it’s a place where regulars go and there were lots of happy faces (almost like customers were family). Perhaps a few visits are needed to get this level of service that others seemed to have. No end of meal watermelon, or small drink which means I am rating lower than the nearby Tropicana which was absolutely superb! Meal was tasty enough but not outstanding.
