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.

First visited this quaint and quirky little restaurant (a compliment, not a criticism) while exploring Skopelos town, after our first and hopefully worst culinary experience on the island. Invited in by the owner, we were immediately struck by the warmth and sincerity of the welcome and the sight and smell of good food, which was enthusiastically confirmed by a table... More

Truly worthy of visiting! Its not too touristic and its so unlike all cafes in the harbour. Hidden in the streets of old town Gorgones catches your eye with an interesting design. Very cosy place with very friendly guys. Great sophisticated food, some dishes are purely local, some are more international. Been there several times and everything we tried there... More

Gorgones is a lovely little restaurant, don't miss out by thinking it's just a small street taverna! There are three areas, the small dining room that fronts onto the street, the steep side-road where tables are on platforms or the beautiful garden room. It is clean, tidy, airy well-decorated and each area of the restaurant is quirky and fun. The... More

Being on Skopelos the 2nd time, we are so happy that Eleftherios is still running Gorgones. He makes such good authentic Greek food. It is not such a touristic place and you feel welcome like being at friends immediately. Recommendation: don't look into the menu - directly go inside and look what he has available in his kitchen!
