Once seated in this roof top location we were all very content looking down onto the port of Hydra. It was tranquil and very relaxed. The service started slowly and never really picked up all evening, not necessarily inattentive but disjointed and inexperienced. I would say the chef was fairly inexperienced too. I ordered spicy octopus with a diavola sauce... More

We had a wedding dinner and the place was amazing. The next night we saw another but their budget was way over the top! I would have loved to have gone to that one too!

We will gush about this restaurant for the rest of our lives. Found by wandering the side streets of Hydra, located up a set of small, uninvitng old stairs, we almost dismissed this place. I walked up to take a look, immediately brought my wife up, and we fell in love., A small open air restaurant with a magnificent view... More

We discovered Veranda a bit by accident -- not far from the port but still a couple of twisty, windy paths were needed to reach it -- then followed by a long staircase (reminding us of Amsterdam). Sat outside and watched the sunset over Hydra town... listened to the quiet and had v. nice meal -- more Italian than anything... More

Finding out that the restaurant we where aiming for was closed for the season (03. October), we went looking by random. This one looked good and delivered. Nice view, good food and good service. Al tables are outdoor, so it got a little chilly. But the staff did what they could to get us blankets. And they where out on... More

Tasty, well cooked food and imaginative menu, excellent and very friendly service, intimate restaurant, dining under the stars with the twinkling lights of Hydra Harbour to look at. Two courses with wine and drinks: €120 for 4 to eat. What's not to like!

Veranda (βεράντα) is up, up, up steps off Lignou on a rooftop terrace with views over Hydra town. You get a small glimpse of the harbor, but it’s mostly towers and rooftops and hills. Veranda serves good Italian food. I had penne with mushrooms and roasted vegetables and Husband had chicken filet with Mediterranean accents (olives, capers, etc). The bread... More

Hydra itself is magical - pretty quayside, winding streets and alleys, donkeys and mules the sole means of transport, enormous super-yachts trying to squeeze into the small harbour. Add to this a superb restaurant in a stunning location producing first rate food. The staff are terrific - competent and friendly, keen to make sure that you enjoy their restaurant. Its... More

We had a wonderful meal at this restaurant. It was our last night after a great trip to Hydra and wanted something special. We certainly got it. The food was lovely, the view was magnificent and best by far was the lovely waitress we had. She couldn't have been nicer and made our night. Thanks .
