Great starters and good service

The starters were among some of the best on the island, and it had a good selection of wine (can be hard to come by good wine in Greece). I found some of the main courses not quite as good as other restaurants in Chora of a similar standard, but this is definitely among the top 3 places on the... read more

One of the highlights of our great stay in Folegandros. Absolutely delicious fresh food served by a team led by a couple of lovely Danish women one of whom is a great ceramicist. We hardly ate anywhere else so good was the quality of the dishes and so beautiful the quite sizeable garden full of indigenous plants. Made a great... More

While staying in a nearby hotel we visited Pounda (in Greek, H Pounta) both mornings for breakfast. The locale was the garden, which protected us from the unseasonable chilly wind. Our Danish host had designed the crockery (cups, saucers, etc) herself, and it was all lovely. The food was fantastic as well: crepes, omelettes, bowls of Greek yoghurt with honey,... More

Stopped by for lunch, the owner is very friendly and the service excellent. Wine was refreshing and served in pottery jug and small pottery cups made by the owners wife, we had to buy some. I opted for rabbit stifado which was delicious and my partner had goat in lemon which he loved. Shame we are not here longer or... More

Highly recommend Pounda restaurant for anyone visiting Folegandros... It was honestly the best experience we had during our week long stay! You must try the zucchini and/or tomatoe balls.... the rabbit dish also was brilliant. Authentic home cooked food from a lovely family. Locally made dinnerware created by the wife of the family herself really topped it off.

Best breakfast so far in Greece. We sat in a very lovely and romantic garden. Very generous portion and omelette was absolutely gorgeous. Will definitely go back again!

Our friends had a wedding in their garden. It was lovely. The owners are very nice. I don't eat here often but when I have I have always enjoyed it. I often see people in the AM taking their coffee/breakfast here. You can sit in the garden out back or at a small table out front and watch the world... More

We ate here repeatedly because of the perfect mix of great food (thx Eleni), great service (thx Giorgiou), lovely decor and art throughout (thx Lizbet) and sympa, well-balanced management (thx Tarkis). Add in the world's most adorable tiny white kitten and what's not to like? The folks here have created a special place, one that beckons for all 3 meals.... More

This is a delightful place to eat - a lovely garden setting - nice lighting - attentive waiters. Unfortunately the standard of the food has declined since our earlier visits. A fish soup consisted of a bowl of murky water with a few unidentifiable fishy bits in it - tasted like fishy dishwater. A Rabbit Stifado consisted of a single... More

We've been many times at this place and the food is consistently good. You can sit under a roof or in the garden. A good choice of local food/products and tasty wines.
