Grilled and salted sardines from heaven. Delicious walnut dip, lentil salad and feta bake. We had a magnificent meal, enlivened by memorable Molyvos hospitality in the form of Theo and Mixalis. Viva The Captain's Table!

Average quality food served at very competitive prices. However be aware that they only serve mezes . No main dish or great variety of choices. Good location right in the middle of the harbour area.

…this should be the one! Delightful array of delicious small dishes to tempt any palate. We spent a week in this quaint town and had planned as usual to try a different restaurant every night but found ourselves returning here every other night….and did not have the same dish twice, even though we ordered abundantly!

Really recommend this place. Set right on the harbour, food is meze style, a bit like tapas giving the opportunity to try lots of different things. Friendly, helpful staff, excellent service.

Great location on the water......we ordered a variety of mezze and enjoyed them all. We live in Greece most of the time and eat out frequently and found this place to be very pricey. The next day we went to another taverna in the area, had additional guests with us and the bill was at least 1/3 less and the... More

The first few evenings we spent in the old harbour it had just reopened and wasn't very busy...needles to say the... More

Yes we are back. Thank you for coming to our restaurant. Yes our first days were very hectic as we had to cope with opening in high season with a new kitchen that we did not know where anything was and new staff as all our original staff have found other jobs.

It was lovely to see the restaurant open again after the terrible fire. The menu has now changed to serving meze dishes, but nothing has changed in the quality of the food served. The food was excellent & you could have an endless combination of dishes to make a unique meal. We had four types of fish and all were... More

Spend our last evening in Molyvos at this restaurant. Very good service, and tasteful mezes. Menu is different from the more regular Greek restaurants: Try the lentil salad or the smoked mackerel! Despite the high quality and freshness of the food the price is very reasonable. Restaurant is nicely positioned in the small harbor of Molyvos.
