I love the idea of meze and the concept is clear and popular in Molivos. The quality was quite average though and I feel they could do so much more with this tapas style concept. The restaurant seems a bit caught in their success and maybe afraid to evolve the somewhat mainstream dishes.

We ate here almost by accident having walked to the end of the harbour, and then recognised some people who had been in Molly's bar earlier. The Mezes were brilliant, particularly the Lentils, captains dip and the pitta bread- all absolutely fresh and tasty. The Gilt head bream was perfectly cooked , in fact the best cooked fish I've had... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant and the atmosphere ... The food was great and fresh, the staff very helpful to guide us in our choices (especially on Ouzo, as the list is pretty long!).

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.
