I cant find a single flaw except tha it doesnt have a fireplace for winters cold days. The service is quite fast and potamousiki salad is really sth different so give it a try. Also do mind on ordering wined rooster which takes taste to a whole new level.

Everything is more than delicious at Roussiko, but what stands out and everybody should taste are "melitzanobourakakia" , "mastelo with honey" , and "thimianousiki" salad.

The restaurant has a very extensive menu and they do everything professionally. Everything was fresh and percetly cooked. I went there in October with my family and ordered boiled octopus, calamari, mastello cheese, a fish dish (prefer mezzes / appetizers / side dishes to fish in Chios) I couldn't remember the name and goat with pasta. All were delicious and... More

Roussiko is the best greek tavern in Chios with its atmosphere, surroundings and especially sea food. Try boiled kalamari and octopus if you seek unique taste. If you are lucky enough, you can get the magical drink after your meal :)

We visited Roussiko twice during our stay in Chios. Indeed it is one of the best places to eat in Chios. The food was very good both times but the service was (at its best) average. Obviously the friendly staff is not enough to match the capacity of the restaurant. On another note, a few less tables would add to... More

The restaurant is in a magical yard, the service is impeccable and the food is very good, though I wouldn't call it the best in the island. Might be a bit overpriced compared to others as well. Would recommend it for a nice romantic dinner either way.
