Nice garden but a bit let down

Nice garden and overall environment. Service was quick. We order a salad which was ok, eggplant as a side order which was very bad and as a main dish chicken fillet and mixed souvlaki which were very mediocre. Maybe ordering meat instead of pasta was not a good choice.

I visited this restaurant 4 times in July 2015 I love the setting,food and service hence why I returned so many times. Very good value especially the "Specials" on offer each day.

This restaurant is part of an old olive factory and the tables are tucked away in a secluded garden, it is peaceful and picturesque. The service was a little slow when we were there but this may just be the Skopelos way! The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

We were seated and then left for at least 20 minutes, we ordered drinks and 2 courses, we were asked if we wanted bread - we said yes please. We then sat for a further 20 minutes ( that's 40 minutes without so much as a drink yet !! ), when finally our starter arrived .... still no drinks so... More

I visited the restaurant for a second time this year ..last year was my first visit ..i ordered risotto being an italian cook from an italian family I found it not very good ..it was more like soup with rice than risotto. I felt like asking to see the chef to teach him the lasagna leaves much to the imagination... More

Everything about this restaurant ticks all the boxes. The fantastic gracious service, stylish surrounds and delicious Mediterranean food.Prices are not high at all. Food lovers will adore this place. By far the best meal we had on Skopelos Island . We were having dinner there everyday and the only thing that i must say is that if you come to... More

We loved this restaurant and visited on three separate occasions during our recent visit to Skopelos. Our favourite dishes from the visits were the fish in paper, the halloumi starter and the chicken risotto, but all meals were excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the setting in the gardens of the old olive factory was very special.... More

Lovely setting. Looks nothing from the outside but has a very nice secluded courtyard. If you come in from the road in front of the port under the sign saying Zoura (written Zoupa) ignore that one and head for Olivo. Interesting and well-cooked food and a bit of a change from the dolmades/greek salad/stifado type menu. I had the cod... More

Sitting in the little garden at the rear this was a lovely spot. Service was a bit slow as they had a big group but the food was excellent. Made a welcome change from all the usual tavernas.
