Delicious taverna, some 15mins walk from Hydra on the way to Kamini, just over a small fishing port. Traditional Greek food with a nice although barely perceptible twist, putting it well above other places on the island. Unsurprisingly, fresh local produce is the best, with delicious grilled calamari and octopus and nice spreads. Beautiful sea view.

I won't remember this place NOT only for having forgot my sunglasses. We decided a romantic dinner based on 2 guys met in the island that told us about it...and i think worthy won't be enough to describe it. My girlfriend(moussaka addicted) told me the best ever she tried. The grill fishes that we picked were absolutely perfect. The wine... More

My wife and I went here for dinner on my birthday and got a great table on the balcony overlooking Kamini. Fabulous view of the small working harbour and passing boats and pedestrians and we watched the sun set as we ate our meal. 10/10 for location. The owner spoke almost no English which was fine as he took us... More

This tavern has a reputation for two things. The scenic view and the grilled fresh squid. I have to admit that the scenery is perfect. In fact, you can easily sit there and enjoy your drink or food all day, just by looking at the sea, the small island in front and Peloponnese in the background, the colorful harbor below... More

Kodylenia's taverna is hidden away in the small harbor of Kaminia. It has a captivating terrace with a lovely view of small fishing boats and fishermen. It is accessible on foot (15 minutes' pleasant walk from the main port and through the narrow streets of hydra). On the way back we got a traditional boat from the small harbour right... More

Seafood was absolutely fresh and delicious! Friendly service. If you time it for sunset the views are spectacular.

This taverna has a wonderful position to watch the sun set but the attitude of the waiter detracts from the experience. Everyone I met felt the same. I chose not to eat there because of the attitude of this person - I had a drink there on three different occasions and he was offputting on each.

Ten minute walk from Hydra town. overlooks small port of bobbing boats. Pick out your own fish and accompany with Greek dishes. Please try this one for lunch after swimming in in close by beaches or for dinner
