    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.

    NAFPLIOS TAVERNA

    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.

    Delicious restaurants tips!

    by siaki68 Written Oct 30, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Local people are food lovers, and Nafplio is full of tavernas for all tastes. For good, traditional Greek cuisine, try “VASILIS” in Staikopoulou Str. “NOULIS” and “EPI SKINIS” are famous for their tasty tidbits which you can escort with Greek ouzo or retsina. And if you are looking for something exotic, the restaurant of the hotel “Nafplia Palace” offers delicious sousi and a magnificent view of the town. Complete your lunch or dinner with a galaktompoureko or a baklava (traditional sweet desserts) at the famous “KATSIGIANNIS”!

    Numerous Tavernas along walkway: Harbor View while dining

    by painterdave Written Sep 7, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    eggplant

    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.

    Restaurants in Nafplio

    One of my favorite Nafplio restaurants - Agnanti

    Nafplio is loaded with good restaurants with extensive menus, in English. All the tables are on the pedestrian streets or in the squares and it is just a matter of finding the one with the right scenery and the menu that appeals to you.

    Greek Food!!!!!!!!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nafplio is loaded with good restaurants with extensive menus, in English. All the tables are on the pedestrian streets or in the squares and it is just a matter of finding the one with the right scenery and the menu that appeals to you.

    Staikopolou street which is two blocks above Constitution Squatre (Platia Syntagma), has many of them and the rest are scattered around the city.

    There are also seafood restaurants on Boubalinas street along the waterfront. Try The Palio Arhontiko (Old Mansion) at 7 Siokou street recommended by the gastronomical experts at Loney Planet. We ate at the Golden Barrel on Stiakopolou street which was fine. Why we picked it over any of the others on the street I couldn't tell you so there may be better. Then again it might have been Vassilis Taverna. Make sure you try the Ouzo Karoni, which has been bottled in Nafplio since 1869, by the same family, using the same recipe.

    The favorite taverna of George the Famous Taxi Driver is O Sabouras, right on the palm-tree lined waterfront. We came here with George one afternoon and had an incredible meal. Try the media saganaki, mussels cooked with cheese in tomato sauce. Also their tirokafteri, which is a spicy cheese spread. The fried shrimp and fried koutsomouris (small red mullett) were cooked to perfection. I imagine at this restaurant if you go with the fish you can't go wrong. It's at #79 Boumboulinas 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Old Tavern: Friendly staff, good Greek food

    The menu

    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!

    Waterfront restaurants: Watch the sun go down

    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.

    To Mikro Tavernaki: Don't forget to try "Kolokotroneiko"

    by maraike Updated Apr 9, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Small traditional taverna (restaurant) located in a little alley in the old city. Unfortunately i don't remember the name of the road. It's a really small one and maybe you'll have to wait for a table, but believe me, it's worth it. The people are very friendly, the whole environment is very welcoming, the music usually is a traditional greek music called rebetika and most of all the food is great!

    Favorite Dish: "Kolokotroneiko" rules there. It's a dish with meat and onions and some potatoes on the side. When they finish cooking it they poor a little wine on it and i don't know what spices they use but the taste comes out great!
    You could also try "Bekri Meze".
    "Bekris" in greek is a person who drinks too much.
    Both dishes are especially for those who are about to or have drunk a lot. They are said to help you not to get so drunk. I've tried them and it really does work! (to some extent!)

    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...

  • "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.
