This is truly a family run business, run by Yiannis and his wife Katerina as well as his father Spiro and Mum Maria (who are both excellent cooks).

This must be the best pool bar in Paleo. During the day you can just relax by the pool (loads of beds and umbrellas), nip to the bar for refreshments, or go and sit down and have a light lunch. You must try Yianniís Dads mousaka with a few chips, absolutely fantastic.

In the evening Yianni is the entertainer, what a comedian. On a Saturday night itís Bar-B-Q time, again the food prepared by Spiro. Yianni, his sister and Katerina get up and do the Greek dancing (watch out for the fire dance).

I have been here many times over the past 5 years since it was changed from a taverna. Once you get to know Yiannis and his family, you will become friends for life. I highly recommend it.Smile

The Jewel in the Crown of Paleo. Situated in the mid section of Paleo and run by a fine family this taverna has slightly altered from my first visit about 11 years ago. It was a resteraunt then with all that you would associate with a local taverna, ie. Greek Dancing Excellent food and service.

It is now a pool bar with apartments run by the same family. Spiro and Maria, their son and his wife, Yiannis and Katerina, and their son and daughter, Spiro and Maria. The apartments are first class and the pool and bar facillities excellent. Food is served throughout the day and night and is prepared by several family members all of whom are equally accomplished along with a resident daytime cook. Food is prepared in full view.
The bar is entertaining and when Yiannis is on form look out. There are no friendlier people on the planet and this is an ideal place to switch off for a few weeks. I have been staying with them since they opened the pool bar and in the Oceanis hotel opposite before that.When we were at the hotel we ate at Faros every night boring.....? not on your nelly.
Go in if your passing enjoy the pool and the facillities. You might just also meet Bob and Janice the almost resident Jocks, Myself and Julie, Mick and Jacky and Brian and Kath. We all return every year and spend 2 weeks full on relaxing.
