Have only just discovered this web site so I apologise in advance. Jen and I have taken 7 holiday in Poros over the last 10 years. We have never been disappointed. First met Nick when he was involved in running the Sirtaki Taverna, but only met Amanda briefly then. Last year (2004) we renewed the aquaintanceship. It is true - the Cactus Bar is the only place to go. Two lovely people who can't do enough for you. Last year Jen's 'back went' at the start of our holiday. It was quite a sight to see her cuddled up with a Santa Claus covered hot water bottle, in the middle of August, lent to us by Amanda. Great company, excellent food (especially Nick's version of an English breakfast) - try the mezzies, they are to die for, as are the ice creams.
As for the drinks, well you would be hard pressed to drink your way through the list of cocktails. (He does have draught beers as well). There are other Bars and Tavernas in Poros, and it would be wrong to try and disuade people from trying them all - they all need the tourists' money - but we all have our favorites, and ours happens to be the Cactus bar with Nick and Amanda. Can't speak highly enough of Poros and the people. Have stayed with Maki at the Santa Irina, a great guy doing all he can to put Poros on the map. It is true to say that it isn't cheap any more, but you get what you pay for. We are going again this year for 3 1/2 weeks so I am putting my money where my mouth is. Try Poros - and the Cactus Bar - you will not be disappointed.
