Having read the reviews we were looking forward to visiting Makis. Unfortunately for us it was not a good experience! I think it was probably a family restaurant and there was one young lady serving who was sulky and unhelpful all night. My husband and...More

Makis is a local farmer. He sources ingredients from his own farm and his wife turns them into great food in their restaurant. The food is unpretentious and very tasty. The courgette and feta cheese balls were the best I had on the island.

We try Makis mix for 2 person it is so beautiful and tasty. Home made sausages are excellent. They also have grilled bread with olive oil and origano.

This is a great small family run restaurant. Makis recognised us immediately from 2 years previously. He runs it with his wife and his 2 children help out. It is friendly, welcoming and really good food. Worth booking especially at weekends.

We last visited Makis 3 years ago. The food was still nice but not quite as good as last time. We did feel a little rushed as the taverna was busy and the owner seemed keen to turn over the tables during the evening. My...More
