If you like spicy food, try the Birki meze chicken.  Fantastic but burns your lips off.  Dennis on the door is a really nice bloke.  He also works at the Alykanas beach hotel.  15 hours work a day and he still has a smile on his face.  Had 3 meals here and all were really nice.

Dennis on "the door" draws you into the Poseidon.

Once inside, you are treated to something special, although I suppose the Child Labour do-gooders would have something to say about the young boy working there - surely he'd have school the next day !!
I can totally recommend the Poseidon Special Lamb In Pot - my wife asked for roast potatoes with her meal, only to be told it comes with roast potatoes, chips, rice and salad !!
My Mum & Dad had been coming to Alykanas for the last 7 years, but had never been to the Poseidon- once we took them in there, they were hooked (5 meals in a fortnight can't be bad !)
They will also be paying more visits when they go back in October.

A really great to place to eat and enjoy. Good food, the menu was very good and not one bad meal. Try the Collicia house wine, excellent especially if you enjoy red. In fact it was all very good and the staff were brilliant.

Many thanks to Anna who made us so welcome and Aris who my sister would love to have brought home.
Hopefully one day we will return to enjoy more and be back in touch with Anna.

  This is the best restaurant in Alykanas.  Try the Spicy Meatballs they are delicious.  The chef/owner makes everything fresh on the day and you can taste it.  Be patient if busy, just sit back and enjoy, it's worth the wait!!!!   The staff a very friendly and helpful.  You'll keep going back for the food and the STAFF.  Thanks to Anna, Andreas, Aris .  Sorry we never got back to have a drink with you Anna but we will be back, so see you then. However, if you see this and are coming to Dublin Anna, post a msg and I'll get intouch, we'l meet up.  Adrienne & Olga

Hey 2 everyone at Poseidon!! i dont no WHY?  this restaurant only has 3/10 because this year this restaurant was my FAVOURITE!!!  we have been going 2 alykanas for many many years now and been put off the restaurant by other people and to me it looks scruffy!(dont judge a book by its cover!) as my mum is working for them this year we ate there and couldnt believe it!! the portions are very BIG so anyone with a little stomach beware!! you get whatever you ordered! e.g chicken fillet, then you get chips,potatoes,rice,veg and pitta if its soulvaki!! my mum and sister also enjoy the stuffed tomato & pepper!! and prices are good!!

The waiters are sooo friendly, the dont pester you for more drinks or dessert! Andreas become my best friend over the 5 weeks i was there! and wanted me to stay and said i could clean his house!!-haha yeah whatever!! he was great (like a Dad) and his little girl is adorable!! Cant wait to see you guys again in the winter or next year!! Miss you! keep the good food going!!

Definately worth a visit if not more while your there!!!

Kat & Russ  (15 August 2006)         

This restaurant has one of the best chefs on the island - the food was fantastic and reasonably priced. So... the staff...we had a great time here and made some good friends. Everyone of the staff are hard working and provide excellent service, always with a smile. Be warned that this Taverna is very popular in that around 8ish is manic in there - try and eat as the Greeks do - a little later. A big hello to Miri, Aris, Anna, Rosa, the chef, and last but not least Andreas who sat with us and shared many smiles and laughter. Andreas, thank you for Michael's tatoo - he loved it, you are a generous man. Unfortunately his skin has reacted very badly. We hope to return next year and perhaps see some familiar faces.

click to enlargeOne of our favourites again this year, some of the same staff from previous years all recognised us and all very helpfull and service was always great.
Food was great as well ate here quite alot and never had a bad meal favourites were the Lamb Kleftico.
Also added a pic of my son with his new friend the most helpfull waiter on the island taken in the middle of the biggest thunder storm iv'e seen.
Yammas !!

I went to the poseidon 3 years ago and it was brilliant the staff were great, i went this year and all the staff had changed apart from 2 faces. It didnt have the same atmosphere as it did but Aris on the door remembered us from 3 years ago which cant be bad. The food was good i had plenty on my plate and was always full afterwards. I am going back to Alykanas last week in August and i will certainly go back to poseidon. Toilets werent up to much but its the food i go for.

Sally C  (16 May 2006)         

Have to say this place was a nice surprise after reading certain comments.  Both the food and service were better than we had expected, the staff were especially nice and friendly.  The specials on the menu were quite appetising and we enjoyed our meal in a very relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. Prices were quite reasonable compared to other restaurants. Will definitely be back!

Cathy W  (15 March 2006)         

 Have just read the last two comments and have to disagree completely.  We have been to Alykanas many times and always eat here (in fact we have been taken to this restaurant by Greek friends).  We have always found the food to be of a high quality.  The staff take time to explain the "specials" and if you are not sure what certain dishes are they are happy to tell you.  When we return in July we shall be eating there again!!! 

Liz T  (15 September 2005)         

By far the worst retaurant we visited. Food was awful.  The lamb Kleftico was very fatty and there was hardly any meat anyway and the swordfish was dry and tasteless.  Service was very slow and the staff seemed to want to get rid of us as they had a private party coming in later.  Wouldn't go again

Michael T  (09 September 2005)         

 cannot understand the negative comments,ate hear 3 times  food and service excellent,prices average.

Emma M  (22 August 2005)         

Dennis, or whatever he was called on the door, really annoyed us. A couple of nights we crossed over just to avoid him badgering us.
We tried this restaurant once and it was enough. On a positive note, my starter of Briam was lovely. However I ordered pizza as my  main course and I think it was a frozen pizza. My boyfriend wasnt impressed with his meal either, and it was one of our most expensive meals of the holiday.
Avoid it, there are much better restaurants in Alikanas!

The face says it all !!
Got the order wrong,
Over cooked food
Inflated prices
Toilets were

Melisande P  (11 June 2005)         

Tried a few other  restaurants and on the fourth night of my holiday I went to the Poseidon.  I was very impressed with the food, the hospitatlity and the friendly atmosphere.  Needless to say, I became a regular customer for the remainder of my holiday.  The food was to die for and the staff always made me feel very welcome and we had many a good laugh.  Would definitely go back next time I am in Alykanas.  Don't miss it!

Les K  (30 May 2005)         

Had a meal in here on 18th May.  Can't remember what we had but certainly had no cause for complaint, would certainly make this Restaurant a point of call should we return to Alykanas.  Try it, if you don't like it, move on !!

Lorraine S  (04 March 2005)         

well the food was to die for in this restaurant chicken fillet pizzas bolognese and much much more would deffo go back to this one when back in alikanas do try you wont regrett it i didnt

Lloyd W  (20 February 2005)         

The poseidon was brilliant the service was always good and the food was very good

Carl W  (03 October 2004)         

Went here on the first night in Alikanas, wasn't a bad meal, the service was pretty prompt, but nothing write home about...

Peter M  (30 September 2004)         

Talk about pushy...the guy on the door was almost on his knees in the street pleading with us to eat there! Needless to say, didn't bother.....there are far better places in Alykanas and you don't get the same pressure!
