I visited this restaurant several times during my recent stay in Skopelos, as I have done many times over the last 10 years, and have to say that the service was sometimes poor - caused by the restaurant being busy and having insufficient staff, and not by the indifferent attitude of the staff. In previous years there have been more... More

We were in Skopelos in June. We had quick Greek salad (xoriatiki) in Nostros taverna. The place was almost empty (only one man was sitting nearbly). Waiter was indifferent, just asked what we'd like to order and then after 5min he came with xoriatiki. I was in Greece several times, and many times I was eating xoriatiki - this was... More

The taverna was very busy and so I thought it would be very good. However, they clearly didn’t have enough staff, so service was very slow and this contributed to other problems. I ordered gigandes and chicken souvlaki with rice. The gigandes never arrived: apparently they had none left but they never told me so I didn’t have the opportunity... More

This taverna is always busy and is very popular with both locals and visitors . . They have an extensive menu of traditional dishes plus fantastic spit roasts. Service is fast and efficient

We decided to eat there a quick pita gyros. The price was good, the quality of food - also OK, but nothing more. The service was quite slow, we had to wait long, long time to get the bill. However, taverna is situated in the old port in a beautiful surroundibg, so why not to guve it a try:) Oh,... More

Was recommended to go here and was not disappointed. I have been wanting to try Kokkersti(?) for ages but everywhere that advertises it then say not available. Not here! I loved it, not everyone's cup of tea but I love offal and thoroughly enjoyed it. I did share a little with the stray dog that wanders through the waterfront Tavernas... More

Called here on a boat trip to Skopelos. Initial appearance and welcome was okay but went downhill from there. Much of the food advertised was unavailable. Wife asked for some advice to have a chicken skewer type meal with pitta bread or similar and was told this could only be done with pork. Ordered tzatziki starter which never arrived at... More

We've had the mixed grill. A lot of meat, but bit dry. Service is nice, untill you've received the food. It takes long before we received the bill and food was cleared out from our table. Nice for one time but not more.

We've been to Skopelos twice; once for a lengthy stay and then on a day trip in 2013. On our first trip, we learned that most of the harbour restaurants were to be avoided. However, they at least had pleasant service to go along with their fairly average food. In 2013, we decided to try Nostos for dinner. Even though... More
