Restaurant on the waters edge

Lovely to sit by the sea and eat real Greek food. Very friendly service, and complementary desert after the meal. There is a very long menu but many of the dishes were "off", thisn may be because it was late in the season

We have eaten at three restaurants in Alyki and have been disappointed. So we observed that most of the locals seemed to congregate at The Balcony; we also spoke to the owner of the apartment where we are staying and he confirmed that indeed most of the locals ate there. We had dolmades, fried zucchini and cheese-spinach pies for starters,... More

Set in the centre of town, the restaurant occupies a large part of a pier, with one side extending into the sea. Prices are very reasonable, and the food is excellent. We had mussels, Greek salad with local (not fetta) cheese, giant beans, and a bottle of local wine - all for under EUR40. This place shames the restaurants along... More

The location of this restaurant is quite delightful. There is enclosed, waterfront seating but there was also a tiny, curved pier filled with tables. In October, the sun and the slight breeze made it perfect for sitting there. We were however not impressed with the service. The one and only waiter seemed to have little time for his clients and...

We were delighted with our choice. We liked the big Greek salad and chicken souvlaki (which is served with French fries). The bread was the best we'd eaten anywhere in Greece. The setting is lovely. We thought the prices were good. They served complimentary watermelon after our meal. I liked that touch!

With a breathtaking location - literally - on the crystal water of Aliki's harbour - you would expect fresh, tasty food. What we ordered was really not extraordinary. Fava peas were good but fried calamari and grilled ray were way too greasy and so were the fries. Ok it's fried food, but doesn't need to taste like oil. A nice... More

A thoroughly enjoyable Greek island seafront lunch experience! The view is stunning and serene, watching the little fishing boats floating next to us in the sea, while we sipped on our white wine and enjoyed a delicious lunch. The marinated anchovies were really great, as was the Greek salad with the soft local cheese instead of feta. Also try the... More

With tables outside right on the water, it was our favorite local restaurant. The fish was fresh and we'll prepared and the service excellent.
