Karl I didn't enjoy my gyros from Beachpoint as much this year. I think it was the bread that they have changed. It was still good but not as good as usual.

Val we are the same with Thomas's/,Vavillas. We first went in ,2001 and it wasn't as busy then but it has been a joy watching their kids grow up. I have always said you feel like you are sat in their dining room having a meal with all the family helping out. Even watching the kids go through their teenage years and all that comes with that was a joy as you forgive them like you would your niece or nephew. Just another to see them growing up and a normal family trying to make a living and serving fantastic food.

We have never had a poor Gyro in all the time we have used Beachpoint and that is many times over many visits, and as has been said it is possible to get the odd below standard meal no matter where you may go, be it humble cafe or restaraunt

As we haven't been for a while we have got to get up to speed with the restaurants.  We obviously loved the brouklis and also Effies..  the last time we went was at the end of the season and it rained...  we had a lovely meal at Effies and she gave us black bin liners and a lift back to the Bardis studios so we didn't get wet.  Had the best fish there.  On the sea front right at the other end before the bend nr Bardis what is the name of that place.  I heard it had changed, is it still opened.  Another place on the front we went in when it rained, all the windows were steamed up, it was a great family atmosphere and everyone ordered soup.  😂  I remember the Thalassa I think it was.  Bit posh but very nice. I also remember Vavilas, the fish was beautiful.  And I agree Poppy is a great cook,  she made us fantastic omelettes when we didn't want a full blown meal.  The Captains was a firm favourite too. We have lots to look forward to I think. Where is the Beachfront x

Beachpoint is next to Alex 's supermarket. It has only been open about 4'orr 5 years but overall usually very good gyros and good reasonably priced food. Does some traditional food plus snacks food like gyros, toasties and sandwiches etc

I think the one you are thinking of that is right at the end on sea front is Vinceremos. It used to be the seabreeze.

We want to take some beers and gyros and sit on the beach and watch the sun go down.  We didn't do that in St George South last year,  we didn't like the beach there so the idea didn't appeal so it's on our to do list next year.  Hopefully we will have a decent gyros 😀  We know the beers will be good.  That first cold Mythos is what Mike looks forward to.

That is what I have heard Karl. They had already taken over their apartments this year.

Hopefully next year the gyros from Beachpoint will be back on form. Im not sure if there is anywhere else that does takeaway gyros. Maybe Buoyata's do. They are a fairly new Taverna - been open about 3 years? They are up near the Malibu.
