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

I see that O Kritikos gets very mixed reviews, which surprises me: though it bills itself as a Cretan restaurant, I didn't notice much on the menu that struck me as that different from what was on offer elsewhere. However, what we did choose was well-executed and above the average island standard (in fact, I have to say that the... More

Excellent value for money. We believe that it was the best "food on fire" (Excellent mixed prok-lamp konstosouvli and roasted chicken) to find at Chora of Folegandros. We would definitely visit again to try more roasted stuff.

Central position in Folegandros Hora with trees offering shade for lunch. Typical greek food with good products and moderated prices. In July it was fully booked for the dinner. Accept Visa card

The atmosphere was excellent. However, this is typical for all Chora restaurants. The horiatiki salad (Greek salad) and the starters were good. The horiatiko sausage from Naxos was tasty. The moussaka dish was definitely warmed with its plate in a microwave oven as the plate itself was really hot. This is unacceptable. Maybe this restaurant specializes in grilled meat. However,...

We were impressed by the looks of the grilled meat and expected it to be tasty. I have to admit that the food and service were below our expectations unfortunately....
