Very good souvlaki

Tasty souvlaki with very good ingredients. We only tried souvlaki - tilihta - but fromwhat I saw around us everzthing looked good. Also the french fries were excellent.

A good option for souvlaki. Good prices and nice tastes! It is also located in a nice point at the chora!

We ate at this place twice and I would have given it higher marks if not for the second time. I will make this clearer in a bit just bear with me. To start with this is a souvlaki place with a "richer menu" than a common one, serving some decent starters and a having a bit more refined service.... More

I meant on my previous review of Taverna Basilikos Amorgos another one which is located on Crete Georgioupolis. I am so sorry about this misunderstanding. I have never visited in Amorgos. But i hope maybe some day.

dont mess this up, this is not a traditional restaurant rather than a place to eat souvlaki. its huge and really nice (gyros) but i would rather take it away rather than sit there and eat. during rush hours-high season, you will find a line waiting to eat!

It's a souvlaki tavern (steak house) in Chora, and not a restaurant as it is called. The menu dissapointed us: Gyros, souvlaki, salads and starters are the main menu. Seats were very jammed so if someone wanted to leave should tell the near table's customers to get up first. There is a bench on the wall that was very narrow... More

During our 4 night stay, we went eating 3 times at Basilikos, first time mezze and a pitta plate, very nice stuffed mushrooms, second time just a pitta bread and the third time some mezze + a pitta. They are always friendly, whatever you order, also the locals come here and take out their pitta. The food is good and... More

One can hardly miss the lovely and always bustling Basilikos when strolling the tiny Chora of Armogos. The pistachio colored setting is light as a Summer breeze and the scent of Basil wafts through the air. We squeeze into a tiny corner table, protected from tonight's howling winds and study the excitingly different menu. I must admit that after traveling... More

Please ignore the two previous reviews from Petter(who can't even spell his name properly) and Kapavou who says that this is just another souvlaki place which serves mushroom pie! I would seriously rate both these reviews as dodgy probably written by "jealous" neighbours. We had pork loin which juicy and tender, lovely locally sourced mushrooms stuffed with spicy cheese, pork... More
