Sure the setting is wonderful, like all of the restaurants around the very pretty plazas at the centre of Chora, but the food was very average.

Food was average and the service was sullen and inexperienced. There are far better places to eat so avoid it.

We were so looking forward to eating at this restaurant. We particularly love charr-grilled food. We ordered the chicken and mixed lamb and pork and unfortunately they were drier and under. The tzatziki was very good. The service was great and they brought us complimentary dessert which was kind of them and it was tasty

The food was very nice with fresh and tasty ingredients. But what's really great about this restaurant, is its location. You feel as if you are part of a romantic movie, the surroundings are simply beautiful!

We approached the taverna staff, who were sitting at a table outside, and asked what was fresh that evening as has been the custom all over Greece during my 35 years of living and visiting there. They motioned toward a large whiteboard on the wall with dozens and dozens of dishes listed, so we sat down and tried to order... More

You may hear some people disparaging O Kritikos as a "grilled meat place" and it is true that this is what they specialise in. However, we found their Fava, Taroma, Horiatiki with local cheese, Tzatziki and Yemistes top notch as well. We ate here on 2 of the 7 nights we stayed and found it excellent both times. The souvlaki... More

Recommended to us by Our new friend Fotis (rumored to be the best jewelry artist on Folegandros)! We had grilled chicken, pork, and lamb. All were very good. The appetizer, mashed eggplant, was only fair at best. Bread was quite difficult to deal with too.

This place is probably the best taverna for grilled meat in Folegandros. Starters and salads are tasty and fresh, even the otherwise ho-hum local bread is improved: slightly toasted, sprinkled with olive oil and oregano. (Folegandros desperately needs a better Greek bakery!) If you like "kondosouvli" pork, definitely try it here. It is crispy and delicious. Fried potatoes were fresh... More

This restuarant is located in the centre of Chora and we ate there twice. On the first ocassion it was very windy but they found us a table which was protected by a wall. On the whole the food wasn't bad but nothing special. Quite a good atmosphere with plenty of cats to eat any scraps! We found the service... More
