Hydra is a beautiful island with no car, no bike. To go around it is by foot, mulet or boat, all this make a very special place. This taverna is in the next little fisherman port to Hydra, it is very pretty. the people are lovely, they save honest family Greek food. The terrace is above the... read more

We were invited inside to see the food. Good idea. Lots of dishes in a food cabinet that seemed neither refrigerated or heated. Some ordered a cheese dish that required cooking & a simple vegetable salad.

The Taverna is situated over Kamini Bay, less than a mile from Hydra Centre. It offers spectacular sunsets and very good food. It is very popular at weekends and it might be necessary to book. For tourists interested in the preparation of their dishes, access to the kitchen is simple. I would recommend the Calamari - both grilled and fried... More

We walked round the cliff opposite the port and after 15 minutes lovely walk along the sea discovered this attractive restaurant high up overlooking the tiny harbour below. The owner of our hotel was eating here too and recommended us to try the calamari, since it is fished locally and particularly good and sweet. It was delicious and very tender.... More

Every time we visit this magic island we always book a table at Kodylenia: the only tavern where you can find the real recipes that you could eat only if you had your grandmother cooking in a Greek village. The traditional exposition of trays with Greek specialities in the warm showcase of Kodylenia to us is like a “passarella of... More

We were lucky to visit this place not in high season so this offer us good and fresh food. We have been twice for lunch and we were not disappointed. We had the xoriatiki salad, fava, fresh squid and fresh fish. Everything was very tasty and the view is amazing. About the service, the person that serve us was polite... More

No need to repeat all that has been said by previous raters. I agree with most of it. My headline summarises pretty well: enjoyed the view, food & wine, the waitresses were friendly and somewhat more attentive, the waiter (and he is not the owner or head waiter, I asked!) didn't bother smiling or being friendly. But he couldn't spoil... More
