The Asteria in Alykes is a fantastic experience. We recently styed in Alykes and ate there several times. We were greeted by very friendly staff who made an effort to speak to adults and children alike. They advised us on the menu and can over to chat as we left.

haven been here a few times in other years we found this visit disappointing food not that hot when came out and served on small plates to hide the small portions given but price same as others that offer a better meal.

Great location next to beach but after many recommendations was a little disappointed that the food was just average. My husband ordered their lamb dish that comes on a flaming tray only to find he didn't enjoy it as it was lovely lamb but too much tomato so a little sickly sweet. Staff were lovely.

We ate 4 times at Asteria and really enjoyed the food and company every time. The steak is the best we ate on the island and the kids loved the pizza, my wife loved the fish and my eldest loved the lamb chops. Can't fault the food, service or welcoming friendly staff.

We went here twice. The food and service were great. I would recommend the village sausage and stifado, and the lamb flambe wich is kleftico that arrives at your table alight!

This is a lovely little restaurant situated on the beach. By day it is an oasis to escape the sun, but by night it is a little bit special with views over the sea. The food is good and inexpensive and service is also good.

Sunbeds and waiter service on the beach all day, great food and friendly service at night, the Asteria is the centre of Alykes in more ways than one. Vladimir will look after you on the beach, and in the restaurant at night

We ate at the restaurant for lunch several times. It was ok on pricing and consistently good food. The service is very good and the view over the beach is perfect! We cannot mention the Asteria without mentioning Vlad - the waiter on the beach. He hired out sun beds (2 for 5E) and took orders for drinks and food... More

Great food and service. A lovely setting right on the beach so the kids can play whilst you watch them. Also a lovely walk back along the beach and via the canal. We ate there last year too and it was just as good as we remembered. The waiting staff are particularly good with the kids. Don't miss it!

We hired sun beds on the beach and received waiter service on the beach which was lovely. The man working on the beach was very friendly and hard working and was happy to give us advice on our stay. The milkshake was absolutely delicious! and the food wasn't bad too :D
