Always busy we tried to get in the night before but there was a half hour wait. The Manager advised to check in when you first get to harbour of an evening, then go for a drink whilst waiting for a table. It's well worth it, reasonable prices and friendly service. The fish platter consisted of a bass, 2 huge prawns, mussels and calamari served with fries. Really good value

Very good fresh food, reasonable menu price compared with others on the front, and friendly staff. Only missed out on the 5* as we were waiting a while for our food, which was eventually picked up and and apologised for. Recommend

After reading all the reviews we sought out the Blue Coast particularly to sample the Meze platter for two. We were very disappointed as this does not represent our experience of an authentic meze which should be a small plate with a mix of tasty bites to share.

We have found out that portions in most tavernas here are unusually large and this was no exception; the platter could have easily served 4-6 people. However it was the content that was our main criticism, there were very large dollops of dips including the spicy cheese dip, not very nice bread, two huge deep fried cheese rolls, cheese stuffed pepper, all in all a greasy, calorific nightmare which was well below expectations.

On the other hand the chicken souvlaki and pork chop were beautifully cooked although let down by the frozen tasteless chips.

The service was good and we were dissuaded from ordering too much in view of the size of the meze. The cost was reasonable but the food was catering for mass tourism and not offering the best of authentic Greek food.

To sum up, great cooking of meat dishes, shame about the rest.

During our week long stay in Syvota we went to this restaurant 3 times simply because we couldn't find a better restaurant. The restaurant is located on the end of the harbor walk and has just half as many tables as the competitors, resulting in a cozier atmosphere and better service. The staff is really kind and asks you if you actually want bread and not just puts it on your table and charge you for it.

They serve traditional greek cuisine and all the dishes we had was delicious. Prices are affordable. Go here and you won't be disappointed. Only thing to keep in mind is that the starters are quite large (especially if you have the meze platter for two) so my tip is to order the starters, eat them and then order you main courses (or just split one main course).
