Quaint courtyard restaurant away from the main roads

Attended a wedding reception here and loooved the atmosphere of this traditional taverna. The food was tasty and the courtyard is lovely! It also feels a little more private than the other open restaurants in town if you're wanting a bit of privacy.

Very good cook and nice dishes such as veal steak with Roquefort sauce, great salads and a beautiful garden. Good choice of wines at reasonable prices. Went there twice and would like to come back; Great place!

We had the best breakfast here as it offers a wonderful selection of options as well as fresh juices. All freshly made and staff very polite. You can sit in the front and watch people walk by or better visit the yard in the back which is super cosy and full of flowers!

Lovely traditional food - none of the touristy type menus here, try baked artichokes, fish soup etc. All recipes from a lovely Greek lady who runs the taverna with her son and daughter in law.

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... 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.
