    Bar: A fresh beer in a hot day

    by Avieira67 Updated Jul 26, 2013

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We met these people, from the ex-URSS, in the islet where is located the castel. When we returned back to Nauplio, we found this bar near the port. It was a very hot day!
    At the end, this lovely family invited us to have a drink at its house. We accepted with much pleasure and we spent an unforgettable evening with them. Thanks a lot for inviting us!

    Numerous Tavernas along walkway: Harbor View while dining

    by painterdave Written Sep 7, 2011

    There are several tavernas along the harbor.
    In the summer the weather is so pleasant and you don't want to be in a hurry. Sit and become a people watcher as the sun sets behind the old prison on the island. Boats come and go and life seems to slow down.
    All of the tavernas along the harbor have great seating with big chairs and cushions, not the usual small hard and low Greek chairs. They want you to be comfortable there, and you will become so.
    Parking is free at the harbor, and the part of the city that you will want to see is also just behind these Tavernas. This area has many tavernas centered around the small piazza created by the Venetians who lived there at the time. They created a mini Venetian feeling, and you can see this all around. They even used the Venetian lion on their buildings.

    Favorite Dish: In our experience all Greek cooking is simple and good. It is difficult to mess up something that they have done all their lives. You will see eggplant and cheese from the oven in the photos, and meatballs in sauce. Be sure and try the zucchini balls, and vine wrapped rice with minced meat.

    Ellas Restaurant: This was a terrible experinece

    by ceedee55 Written Oct 24, 2009

    The restaurant itself is right on the square with a nice outside patio in the town's main square. We chose a table for two on the patio. A gentleman approached and asked where we were from. When we said Toronto he asked if we knew the restaurant Parthenon as it was owned by a friend or an uncle. We confirmed and he then introduced himself as the owwer and said he would order some local fish and a nice Greek salad for us.

    At first I thought it was a nice gesture, then as my wife mentioned she really did not want fish, he said it was already ordered? Sure enough within minutes two of the most unappetizing slabs of what appeared to be smoked or baked fish appeared accompanied by a lettuce salad with almost no tomato or onion. Since he had mentioned " Greek" salad we were a bit shocked.

    The fish was too revolting to even try, there were a few dolmades which were acceptable but not outstanding,the accompanying lemon based sauce was bland. At this stage the gentleman was ignoring us so we washed the dolamades down with the white wine, left 10 euros and his stinky fish on the table and departed.

    He clearly was trying to take advantage of tourists, perhaps to the delight of his local friends? It was certainly out of context with the normally friendly and accommodating people of Greece.

    Favorite Dish: Stick to the wine I think the fish could cause digestive issues!!!

    Street with seafood tavernas

    by Svetlana_L Written Aug 26, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This street was just close to our hotel where we stayed in Nafplio. We were starving to get a fresh fish as we reached the sea. the street is consisted of one taverna following by another.
    We were not amazed by the food there. It was not exactly fresh-fresh...and looked like a touristic trap...may be we were unlucky and didn't chose the right one on the street...

    I have never tried a gelato better than the one made by smiling Marcelo at this lovely ice-cream shop. I was blown away and kept coming back every day during my 4-days stay in Nafplio.

    Prices are quite high, but it is well worth it:
    3 scoops = 4.50 euro.
    2 scoops = 3.50 euro.

    Favorite Dish: Chocolate gelato!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Waterfront restaurants: Watch the sun go down

    by BorneoGrrl Written Sep 8, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The waterfront

    There are several nice restaurants facing the waterfront where they serve ice-cream, small meals and drinks. Sit under the umbrellas with a drink and watch the world go by. The prices are a little higher than the tavernas in the old town but this is a great place to unwind after a long walk around Nafplio.

    The Old Tavern: Friendly staff, good Greek food

    The menu
    2 more images

    I found this restaurant while walking around in the old part of town. The Old Tavern or η παλαιά ταβέρνα is located in the alleys between medieval buildings close to Constitutional Square. This taverna is apparently more than 200 years old. The staff were very friendly and speak English very well.

    I tried the Greek salad & grilled port with fries, and fried cheese. The food was good and came in large portions. You can either dine outside under the umbrellas or inside where there is air conditioning.

    Antica Gelateria di Roma: Italian Gelato in Nafplio

    After lunch, I wanted to have dessert and walked into the Antica Gelateria di Roma to get a nice cold gelato on the hot summers day. When I walked in the people there were friendly, especially this Italian (presumably the owner) who spoke Greek with an Italian accent. Quite funny!

    There were lots of gelato to choose from including other desserts and coffee. I didn't realize until later that this gelateria received a 3-star rating by Frommers. The excerpt from the book is as below:

    "What a wonderful addition to Nafplion! Marcello and Claudia Raffo make and sell delicious ice cream and ices. You can have anything from a banana split to a tiny cup with just a taste. Don't miss the hazelnut, lemon, mango, strawberry, chocolate -- well, you get the idea. If you tire of ice cream, you can always have a freshly made panini with tomato and mozzarella and finish off with a real espresso."

    Favorite Dish: The cold gelato!

  • "O Savouras" Restaurant

    by dimilag Written Aug 14, 2007

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Savouras is situated at the waterfront of the Old Town and it is considered to be one of the oldest restaurants of Nafplio. It serves a great variety of fresh fish, seafood and salads. You should escort your meal-dinner with good local wine. It is well know to the locals, so on weekends it might be a little crowded.

  • Tsakiris Restaurant

    by dimilag Written Aug 14, 2007

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the other side of Nafplion in Paralia Timeniou in the area called Nea Kios is a river delta where many of the area fishing boats are based and there is a large seafood market where restaurants and locals go to buy their fish. Just over the small bridge is one of the best seafood restaurants you will ever eat in. It is called Tsakiris and any taxi will know where it is. Owned by Antonis and Kostas Tsakiris you can't go wrong here. Sundays and holidays the place is jumping all day and into the night. To get there just follow the coastal road towards Argos from Nafplion. You will see a big parking lot just before the turnoff to the town of Nea Kios. We had the fried glossa (flounder) and some large fresh fried shrimp (garides tiganita). We also ate fresh grilled bakaliaro (cod) and grilled octopus. We were the only foreigners in the restaurant. Everyone else was Greek, celebrating the last couple days of the easter holiday.

    It is situated at Filellinon Square and serves meat and fresh fish. Spangetti with lobster is its soeciality but you should also try its pork with vegetables, spinach and Asyrtiko wine. For dessert you should try a slice of watermelon with mastic cream and crispy biscuits. It’ s a unique experience.

    Panteboy Terrace

    Whan Janet, Hans and I met up with Anna (Anpe) we were all in the mood for a cold drink and ice cream. We strolled to the waterfront and picked a Terrace there - PANTEBOY. Hans and I shared a huge ice cream and Janet and Anna had Frappes. A bit pricey - 6 Euros for the ice cream but a lovely spot to chat and watch the boats go by.

    Janet took us to a lovely restaurant near the Harbour. NAFPLIOS is a typical Greek Taverna, serving local Greek dishes. You can go into the kitchen and see what's cooking and order whatever appeals to you. We ordered Greek salad (5.50 Euros) Grape leaves (5.90) and Beef in a red wine sauce ( 8 Euros ). All were delicious and reasonably priced too.
