Not sure how we have missed this lovely place on all of our other previous visits to Sivota. We had a lovely meal and good value. The owners are very welcoming and friendly. Next time we shall take advantage of the moorings available.

A restaurant with good mooring facilities. Service was welcoming, but the food was average. Worth a visit for the view across the harbour and ease of mooring on lazy-lines.

Yannis' Taverna is in a beautiful location and it is possible to moor stern-to right on the quay by the Taverna. They have lazy-lines & Yannis is always on hand to help.

Well we're do I start, the food was of very poor standards, I have travelled through Greece and have tasted some amazing dishes.

We should have walked away from the moment the waitress at the entrance didn't understand our enquiry in fluent Greek. We went upstairs which provided a lovely view of the marina, but the food was very average by Greek standards and overpriced. We went across to the other side of the marina the following night and paid less for real... More

Yet another excellent Greek place by the waters edge. They do breakfast lunch and dinner and one can moor up the sailing boat directly outside and the owner provides free shore hook up and water to refill tanks - and importantly loos and shower.

Came recommended by our yacht charter company and for good reason. Very good octopus salad; which is pretty difficult to master. Friendly and attentive service was also a given. However, the best asset this place has is the location. Set away from the main quayside cluster of tavernas where the majority of visiting yachtsmen go, is the Ionion Tavern. In... More
