“A Greek restaurant on a side street close to the harbour and town. A delightful place to dine with a good balance of traditional style cooking with a more contemporary style leading to great food and a positive local dining experience”

Greek Restaurant
$$
“Ample servings of homemade delights in a convivial restaurant adorned with antique oddments. The mezedhes (appetisers) – zucchini balls, feta with honey, tzatziki etc – are particularly good. As are the meat dishes, including the slow cooked pork belly. If meat isn't your thing, it has some fabulous contemporary-style salads as well.

“Among Nafplio's most sophisticated restaurants, guests come here for the status – and visitors after Greek fare will need to head elsewhere. Its focus? High-end meats. Think the likes of Australian waygu, Dutch veal, American Black Angus steaks, New Zealand grass fed tenderloin. But with that, high end prices.”

“One of several excellent new spots in the 'new town' frequented mainly by locals who might steer clear of those in the more touristy 'old town'. This lovely taverna serves excellent Greek fare at fair prices. It's warm and lively, and you'll smell the aromas before you spot it. Select from a huge range of appetisers, but leave room for the main meals, the likes of chicken with Roquefort and pork with lemon.

“For a break from Greek cuisine, go Italian(ish). Scuola ('school' in Italian) teaches the locals, especially the younger crowd, a thing or two about good cuisine. Its quirky interior comprises a classroom setting, complete with a blackboard and books. Pasta and pizza with Greek twists break all the rules. Don't miss the pizza gyros (meat slithers cooked on a vertical rotisserie). And for dessert? Put up your hand for the sweet pizza with chocolate.

“The only 'true' gelato shop in Nafplio is still holding back the competition. Italian gelati maestros Marcello, Claudia and Monica Raffo will tell you: ‘This is no fantasy – it's the real thing!’ Only natural and local ingredients are used and it's all made on the premises.

“ Α great spot to try local cuisine. Excellent value for money, very tasty food, excellent service. Located in a nice little alley, a bit away from the crowded centre of Nafplio. Try the "Saganaki" - cheese flambé.”

“This lovely restaurant is a bit off the beaten track and a great find. I've been going here for years and the family who runs it are extremely nice. It's all homemade cuisine, and I've even been invited into the kitchen with the mother to learn a recipe or 2! Try the eggplant with tomato and cheese - simple and excellent! It's also very affordable.”

Café

“This was the first place I had a drink and bite to eat, and you can't beat the view of the Bourtzi and surrounding mountains. It's right on the water and very popular, yet relaxed. It has comfy sofas and reasonable prices, so you might stay a while!”
