We holidayed in molyvos in July this year and found this wonderful restaurant. This restaurant serves a wide range of food from traditional Greek to steak and salads. We ate here on several occasions and were never disappointed with the food or service. A bit of the main track but definitely worth seeking out. Lovely view of bay and harbour.... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Molyvos. The food and service are excellent and the view over the sea is awesome, especially at sunset.

I have been in this restaurant october 2014. The service was quick and all the food was fresh and delicious. We liked the Ouzo named Barbayanni with blue label during our lunch there. Nice Greek restaurant for daily visitors. The view of Molivos from the restaurant is great. Staff was very friendly. Prices were cheaper than Turkey. Thanks a lot.

Delicious cheesecakes and tramisu with a fantastic service in a cup. You must try homemade icecreams especially mastic one.

O Gatos is situated at the top of Molyvos which gives the most amazing view across the whole bay and harbour. Sunsets are pretty awesome in Molyvos and you can see the sun go down in lovely surroundings, eating fabulous food. The menu is comprehensive with lots of choice and it is very well cooked and served. I recommend the... More

The view from the balcony as the sun sets is spectacular. The food, no less impressive. Friendly staff and an unforgettable experience. Try the saganaki, you will not be disappointed!

We've just returned to Molyvos after 2 years and Gatos continues to impress. It's position high above the road gives the most wonderful views of the bay. They have recently extended the menu to include fish and vegetarian options. Last night we tried the feta cheese in pastry and honey followed by souvlaki and garlic mushrooms washed down with excellent... More

Gatos has Great location fantastic view. Staff is friendly but food is Preety touristic; classics like moussaka - lamb tagine were ok but not the best.
