Good starters, rest of meal was average.

The starters and bread are good here. Besides this, the mains are pretty average and service is nothing special. Nice location in the square, but there are plenty of better restaurants to visit in Chora.

You go here to get the grilled meats. It is a charming place, and has one of the best dakos salads on the island (Cretan salad, with bread rusks and fresh cheese). They messed up my order a bit, and had to wait a while for it to be done right - but who cares? The food is simple, delicious,... More

We had a mixed meal at this restaurant. The salad and dip was very good but the souvlaki was lacking that hit of flavour and the chicken breast was dry (I forgot to tell them I was a leg man). The potatoes were great. So, good start, missed the finish. The staff were very good and the lemon mousse at... More

O Kritikos is on a pretty little square in the Chora and is a great place for a lazy Folegandros lunch. The food is simple but good, with a nice grill. Service is genuinely friendly. Loved it!

Spacious taverna centrally located in one of Chora's squares. Food is great especially the many grilled options grilled over charcoal - mixed grill on the rotating spit and served from early evening is a speciality. Family taverna for generations - welcoming, friendly, relaxing and great value.

This taverna is a fairy tale setting...looks like a movie set with and old church as the backdrop. The owners Christos and Electra are lovely people. She is a teacher on the island and arranges races and tournaments on the island. We have known them for years. Christos makes good, honest home made Greek cuisine. It is a great place... More

You couldn't find a prettier setting than this plaza at night - a church overlooking a tree-shaded area with tables, with lots of pretty lights hanging in the branches. The grilled chicken was excellent. The baklava was outstanding - the best we had in our 2 weeks in Greece. The milk shakes were also good. Our biggest complaint was the... More

We know O Kritikos for many years. The quality of the food hasn't changed, still good. They know how to grill meat, it's one of the best places to eat kontosouvli (a greek meat speciality) and chicken. And nice service.

In general, Folegandros restaurants are just great, but O Kritikos was the first we visited and we really enjoyed it. We both had roasted meat (chicken and pork) and it was so tender and flavorful with a very generous portion of fried potatoes on the side. It's in a beautiful square, we had really good service and very much enjoyed... More
