We ate here on our second to last night because the setting is just lovely up the alleyways of Skopelos Town. It all started well with a friendly waiter and great table. Then the food arrived and it went downhill. I had the daily special of Swordfish. At 15 euros it was the most expensive item and I expected a... More

Very cute quaint little restaurant you can sit either inside or out as we did as we like to people watch. As the other reviews state the food was spot on and the guy serving on his own by the looks if it was quick serving and even got carried away with the shots of honey ouzo which he gave... More

A little bit different from the tavernas in the port. This place is up in the town, in a doorway. I had the lamb souvlaki, and it was excellent! Friendly service.

Indoor garden and small piece overlooking shops. You can walk in and see the kitchen. Small choice but delicious and cooked fresh. Very... More

This is a lovely looking restaurant, its arty style fits in beautifully with the narrow winding alleys in this, the most interesting part of Skopelos town. Food is great, washed ours down with their very reasonable Rose`.Staff friendly. It can be busy but worth checking even if you don't have a reservation. We were lucky both times we visited. Take...

The food was very good in this small restaurant. We ate twice here during our week's stay and the food and service was excellent.

We ate here in mid-August 2014 and I'm still puzzling over exactly how to sum it up. It's possibly a one-off in location terms as half the seating is for couples and set either side of a set of tumbling steps in an alley - it's far more fun and pretty than that description allows by the way. The remaining... More

Food was very good. I asked for my swordfish not to be too dry and it was excellent. If only they could make the passage way a bit less warm - maybe bigger fans? It would be excellent.

Gorgones is different and full of greek charm. A small, but wonderful restaurant. If you seek something different, Gorgones is the answer. Try it! :)

Authentic Greek food in a cute setting! Really quaint restaurant with lovely food. Delicious salad and tzatziki starters followed by spit roasted lamb and moussaka . Simply superb. Well worth seeking out.
