High expectations

On the highest point of the city, offers breathtaking views and a good introduction to Greek in general and local food. We had a choice of starters which was interesting and well grilled meat as mains. A local wine from the region topped the dinner perfectly.

Right on the hill, it's considered as the city's best restaurant. I'm not an expert to agree but the view is excellent and the food is a combination of traditional dishes with a modern touch. The service is very good and quick. Although the atmoshear has nothing to offer, concentrate on its advantages. It's worth a visit.

What a view. We chose this place mainly for its location. The view is truly stunning, gives you a sense of the magnificence of these mountains. The food is mostly traditional Greek with some nice local touches. Nice prices too.

If you want to enjoy a nice view of ioannina, then that's the place to visit. Contrary to what other reviewers mentioned, the way up to the restaurant is not narrow and there is a parking space for visitors. The service is professional and the food is yummy especially their chicken pie that takes some time to be ready.

The view of the cafe is amazing! You have a great view of the city and the lake (when not foggy). You can go to the cafe by car (big parking place) and you should probably visit the area during good weather so that you can enjoy the outside tables!

You should be in here at least once just for the view... It's not at the heart of the city. That's why you should have a car or take a cab to go there. But it is worth doing this.

Frontzou is the only restaurant offering a beautiful panoramic view of the city while it offers well cooked and interesting dishes, in good variety and quality. In ioannina it has been considered for years as the town's best restaurant and I definitely suggest it for visitors and special occasions. Reservations are recommended in busy days.
