So, is Helens Taverna still closed?  Lost the thread a bit I'm afraid. Always meant to try it.

Jo - we're all Arilliacs and will babble on when the mood grabs us. I get confused using a keyboard and just "go for it" !!
(And I am not blonde , it's just my bald head is a funny shade and is known to reflect the sunlight)

Helens has been closed for a while, which is a shame as we did enjoy the food there. I think they have plans to rent rooms above but not open the Taverna for the Summer.

Margaritas is down further, from Vavillas, on the left and possibly is being "neglected" maybe because of the locality and the ability to fall in the ditch on your way back, which would not be due to the excess food but maybe the excess Ouzo.
But... set back off the road makes it a quiet place to enjoy one evening and, after a few Ouzos, who cares about ditches anyway?
Owner , Nikos, I think , is a good guy and not only can you enjoy the food but possibly practice a little Greek?

Hope this clarifies for you and , if so , please explain it all to me as I am confused now.

Negg

Sorry Karl but I have to tell you 😉......two weeks of bliss, then back again four weeks later for another two weeks.

Then there is a possibility of two weeks in August/September......retirement is wonderful. Oh I forgot, we go to Cyprus in the winter 😮.     We don't plan to leave any inheritance for our kids except the house...... so have told them to start saving for their retirement now 😀😀😀

Hehe! - that's made me laugh Val.
 My parents have been doing exactly the same since they retired 18 years ago and have lost count the amount of paces they've visited (overseas and in the U.k) All the siblings haven't begrudged them any of it.
Life is for enjoying and like you and Bill,they've worked hard enough for it!

Keep on enjoying your holidays in Arillas and other places.

Hi Val,
I hope you are well?
Just out of interest did you try Margarita's in the end?
Has anyone tried there this year as yet ?

Hi Karl, no we didn't get up there on our first visit in May....they were closed.

When we came back four weeks later we had Bills' sister and brother-in-law with us and the nearest we got was Thomas's and then we didn't go up that way again. So it has got to be on our to do list.....hopefully in September 😃

Not too long now for your holiday, have a wonderful time (as usual) but don't keep your daughter out too late this year. Ha Ha

I will give it a go I reckon and report back !
Thers a few on the "to do" list but whether we get to them all is another thing. Never eaten at Armourada / Marina / Kostas On The Beach and a few others as yet so will be looking to do a couple of those.
Still another 5 weeks before we go but I am on a "lads" holiday in Benidorm next week for 4 days !!!!  I am way too old for such things !  lol
