We have visited this restaurant on numerous occasions on our visits to Molyvos over the years. We've always enjoyed the ambience, service and food. This year they have excelled themselves and, in particular, the special pork loin I ate there was, without doubt, the best meat dish I have eaten ANYWHERE in Greece. My husband's steak was also superbly cooked... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant a couple of nights ago and felt we must write a good review after a lovely meal. One other reviewer has said that the food is "just" typically Greek food well we agree but it was the best Greek food we've had in Molyvos for a week!! Simple food very well cooked and... More

Stop here for a cold cappachino Freddo or a fairly good meal accompanied by a restful, nice view of the city below ( see photos) from the covered balcony. Above average food. Not the best but definitely in the top 10 inside the city along the Main Street.

There should be a "good" rating on T/A - because this is better than average but not " very good "!! What is very good is the setting - awesome views over the bay and stunning sunsets . Friendly staff but the food is normal traditional fayre served almost everywhere on the island. Worth going for the views but average... More

We loved our visit to Gatos situated next to the more crowded Molyvos Star. The waiter at Gatos was friendly and had great recommendations on what to choose from the menu. The different dishes we ordered was packed with flavor and depth. So, if you want some great Greek Food I would highly recommend it.

Microwaved filo pastry on the spinach pie; prawn saganaki over spiced to the point of being uneatable; prediluted ouzo. A truly awful attempt at cooking. The view from the O Gatos is remarkable, but best seen from another taverna.

As a group of friends travelling through the island we spent a day in Molyvos. We enjoyed a fantastic lunch overlooking the sea from 400feet up on the terrace. We were greeted by friendly service, delicious Spinach Pie and Mythos beer and hummus, tazaki, fresh bread made for a wonderful atmosphere. Surrounded by a stunning view and people certainly made...

For my 40th birthday, there was no better place to celebrate it than being on the balcony of O Gatos. Simply stunning views of Molyvos and the bay. Go at sunset, you will not be disappointed! The food was delicious (kudos to the chef) and the wait staff were friendly and attentive.
