Great place to go . Captains freindly welcome as always.

Went here nearly every day for drink or food was always welcomed. And had some banter with Kostas the bar man from Brazil. This was a normal Greek taverna Food was always ok and got good service on every visit.

On our first visit we had a fantastic welcome with good food and great service, so we have returned a few times during our stay in Skiathos/Troulos. Captain Nikos is a real character, welcoming and full of fun. His son is also working with him. The taverna had a real Greek atmosphere. They were always glad to welcome you back... More

We called in one morning and thought I would try ' boiled eggs and toast' that's what I got. 2 medium boiled eggs and a piece of toast. To be honest it was fun and reminded me of my childhood, just sat there peeling my eggs. There were a few elderly chaps sat in the corner smiling and smoking and... More

Captain Pugwash strikes again. I came here to shelter from the storms last week and thought I may as well have something to eat, opting for the "full English." Okay. The tea, was, as usual served with that hideous container of cream. Don't the Greeks realise by NOW that we drink milk with our tea? The breakfast arrived with bread,... More

What ever you do avoid this place. You can access this by both roads in Troulos. The Captain -we called his Captain Pugwash, wears a mock captains hat, he is so over the top its ridiculous. The local red wine on offer would probably be good for paint stripper. The white was really rough too..some of the worst I have... More

This harks back to the 80's! The proprietor sports a Captains hat and a white t-shirt every night. He is very welcoming and the food was good but the place could do with a makeover. There are lots of overhanging flowers and plants and this creates a great atmosphere for the mosquitoes and other insects. They are very hospitable with... More

We tried this Taverna as whenever we passed it, it always seemed popular & full. Loved the traditional Greek atmosphere & the greeting from Captain Nicos together with a welcome drink. However once seated we did have to wait a while for our drinks & then our food order to be taken. We were looking forward to the meal as... More
