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!

We were recommended to this restaurant by some other holidaymakers. Quirky little place, off the main harbour, in one of the side streets. Tables inside and outside on the steps. Small menu but quite a variety of food. Need to let them know one day before if you want any specific fish dishes. My husband loved the beef in tomato... More

We were a week in Skopelos and this was our favorite restaurant. It is up the main street. It is a pittoresque place with a tree in the inside. They have a small menu and in order to serve fresh products they have a lot of dishes that are not on the menu. There are no prices but it is... More

We were in Skopelos for a two week stay and in that time we tried a fair few restaurants. Gorgones was our favourite restaurant for a number of reasons - great location (up a little cobbled back street and off the main strip where the restaurants tended to be identikit), great food (the menu isn't extensive but they do the...

The food was very good and fairly priced. As greeks we enjoyed the atmosphere and service, we recommend it to anyone looking for a place less touristic than other places in Skopelos.

The location is the best thing about this tavern. The food was average, the service ok. (The moussaka was ok everything else so and so.) The toilet was a nightmare, very dirty! I really hope they clean the kitchen better as the toilet!
