One of our favourite restaurants on Paros

As very regular visitors to Paros, the Balcony is one of our favourite lunch venues. The breeze is refresting, the view fantastic and the food tops off the experience. Lovely squid, generous Chefs Salad, tasty grilled octopus and mussels. All served by nice staff. Visit Aliki and eat here!

We came here a couple of times on our stay in Alyki, once for lunch, once for dinner. Both times we were well fed. The grilled sardines were excellent, plenty of them if on the small side. Chicken souvlaki was succulent. The service was excellent and we loved the free desserts.

Alyki is a picturesque little fishing village by the sea with taverns at the edge with the water. As we were at the beginning of October was not very busy, service was quick and efficient. We had boiled octopus, sardines grilled hallumi cheese and a salad, fish was fresh, well cooked and nicely presented. Recommended!

The staff is super friendly and accommodating, also very attentive and easy to make eye contact with. Dinner: We ordered a bunch of... More

We stumbled upon this place while attempting to make our way all the way around the island one day looking for a place to buy or rent snorkel gear. Alyki Beach is just sooooo beautiful and clear! We got hungry while wandering around and found this amazing spot on a pier! The view was just perfection! What every vacation dream... More

It is a nice traditional Greek tavern with friendly staff. The location is perfect and the food is good. I propose the huge and delicious pork stake and the grilled squid. Do not take mussels

After a lovely morning at Aliki beach we wondered over to a clutch of port side tavernas. This one looked nice and boy did it deliver on the food. Wonderful sardines - best we had in two weeks and excellent calamari but the stand out was the zucchini fritti. Wafer thin crisps of courgette without a hint of grease. Some... More
