We hired a private yacht for the day and stopped into Pantelis on he recommendation of our captain. This was the best meal of my entire trip to Greece! Dishes are ENORMOUS so consider sharing. For our group of 4 adults and 3 children, we ordered the shrimp pasta for 2 (which could have easily fed 4), lobster pasta (which... More

This place is a very famous restaurant in Symi. The dishes are very delicious both seafood and meat. You must try Symi shrimps and squid. If you like meat try dish of bulgur with lamp. Do not forget to make reservation.

Excellent food! There were 10 of us and we tried each other's dishes. Delicious! We ate outside. The servers were fun-loving and the owner was very attentive to the customers. As the night wore on, several servers and the owner began dancing a traditional Greek dance in the street to music playing. After a while, some of our party joined... More

We had a dinner at Pantelis on our first night in Symi based on Tripadvisor reviews; but we somehow did not like Pantelis. I cannot say the meals are not good at all; but I think that everything was average. Symi shrimp was OK. The grilled calamari was so thick. Symi salad was so sweet to eat.

The staff was very kind and helpful. The bread with olive oil was very delicious (the olive oil was perfect in general). I highly recommend you to try baby shrimp and grilled octopus. Making a reservation will help you to get a better table. For the prices, although I have only visited northern greece before I came to Symi island,... More

We look forward to our next visit after each dinner at Pantellis. The owner/chef is in the kitchen and makes sure everything is cooked to perfection. Sometimes his mother comes in with homemade dolmades. Fresh seabass cooked in salt is amazing. We also love the raw sea urchin meze. Once all the tables have had their main courses, Pantellis walks... More

This restaurant was really nice, food was amazing (mixed seafood meze was awesome) and the service was pretty good too, only downside was that quite a few cars / bikes drive past regularly.

It is no surprise that Pantelis is always busy. The food, wine and service is consistently good and although the roadside location can be a bit noisy, it has lots of atmosphere. Definitely one to include during your stay on Symi.
