Was closed while we were in argassi so cant rate it but was disappointed we didnt get to try it. ( we were there btwn 13 may and 27 may so am not sure if its opening at all this season)
This has got to be the bset place in Argassi for a slap up meal in lovely surroundings. We loved it here, if you like pork then please try Justins Special it's soooooooo mouth watering, just a pity i couldn't eat it all, you get loads on your plate. We have been to Argassi twice now and stay at the Dora Studios (which is the best accommodation in Argassi) and we were like the tourist information on the complex and i advised everyone to go to Ilision, who all came back and said how nice it was, so next year i think i'll be asking for a free meal since i sent people round to fill up there till
After reading the comments below we visited Ilision several times and it was exactly as described. Good, well presented food in a lovely setting. And slightly lower in price than many other restaurants. We recommend it highly.
Sorry I can't seem to add the photos to the post I wrote earlier. Shame cos they're mouth watering!!!
Regrettably we only discovered Ilision on day 11 of our 14 day holiday. This is a superb restaurant of high quality with well presented food, served by a really lovely guy who sweats buckets running the floor show! Dennis ( who incidentally referred to himself as Dennis the Menace! ) is a really sweet bloke. He takes the orders, serves the food, clears the tables, brings the drinks, obliges to take photos of your family and is friendly too! This place is tucked away really but that was part of the appeal for us. The quiet, relaxed atmosphere is a perfect setting to sit and eat excellent quality food. We paid 44 euros for our first visit which we couldn't believe as we had paid 58 euros the previous night at Poisiden Restaurant and it was absolutely crap, plus that was only for 2 courses not 3 as the first visit at Ilision was!!! I have posted photos of four of the main meals we had at Ilision so you can see how amazing Ilision really is!!! You must go and give it a try, you won't be sorry, I can promise you!!!!!! One picture is chicken Hawaiian, which is a chicken fillet in a delicious sauce topped with pineapple, served with a crunchy side salad, savoury flavoured rice and chips. The other pictures were of chicken Bombay - chicken fillet in a mild curry sauce served with the same as the above. Then, feta chicken, a chicken fillet wrapped in bacon with layered sliced potatoes with mushrooms and a feta cheese and mushroom sauce, served with the same as the above. Finally, the tortilla stack....a Mexican pile of tortillas with cheese, chillies, nachos etc arranged in a fabulous and mouth-watering fashion. Hope this posting persuades many of you to pay Dennis a visit. He knew me and my family as 'The Family'!!!!!
We ate here on our first night by pure chance and needless to say we returned a further 4 times during out 2 weeks.
Was such a nice place. Definately the best food we had the whole two weeks. Was nice and quiet and really good value. We got the best free fruit salad ever. veeeeery much appreciated. five stars. xxx
Wonderful lamb kleftiko! Slightly strange place as we were the only ones there and it was a bit like eating in the middle of nowhere, but the food was well worth the trip down the back road.
The BEST restaurant in Argassi in our opinion.
A very nice clean resturant, prices good,service good, pleasent atmosphere, good menu. very enjoyable meals well cooked and presented.
Excellent meal go there every year.. certainly worth the walk =)
must have caught these guys on a bad night.not one to hurry back to.average all round for us i'm afraid.
We ate here on one of our last nights and regretted that we hadn't tried this restaurant earlier. The waiter was excellent, the food was absolutely amazing...you have to try the Kleftiko it is heavenly and for the presentation alone it is worth ordering this meal
Ate here several times throughout our stay , and we loved it everytime, lovely and quite, nice relaxing atmoshphere, really friendly generous staff, its nice to be off the beaten track , well worth the walk to find it. (Approx 5 mins walk from both main roads).
Ate at this restaurant several nights, and each meal was great. The prices were excellent and the quality of food was fantastic. We were given half a litre of wine free, which really reduced the cost of the meal!
Would return here again, because the menu had some many different dishes to try.
what a fantastic taverna excellent food excellent prices and the service 2nd to none well worth a visit
We also went on Greek night. The entertainment was good as was the food. We had a power cut when we were there and the staff upgraded the children's desert to icecream. We had to wait a bit longer for our dinner because of this, but it could of happened anywhere. Well worth a visit on Greek night
Went there on their Greek night and had wonderful time. The food was good and there was plenty of it and had a great time smashing plates and joing in with the Dancing.
We loved this place, the food, the staff, the atmosphere, the parrot.
The waitress was wonderful and she couldn't believe that my daughters were my daughters she made such a fuss. OOh also she is married to the chef so say something nice about your food :)
We visited this taverna numerous times in our two week stay and never had a bad meal. We also liked it because it is away from the hustle and bustle of the main street. Try also the taverna Edem just across the road.
the food was really good, the actual service good, the prices were very good. they offer as near to authentic greek cuisine as you will get in argassi. the down side on the night we ate there was the total lack of atmosphere!!i know the town was very quiet, and it must be very boring when you have set your stall out and you only have a handful of diners that evening, but that means perhaps you have more time to chat to your customers! try it, you never know..however, the food was good, even though we crept away, leaving the bill and payment on the table, just in case we disturbed someone....
