The best restaurant on Mylopotas Beach! Traditional food served in a sea-breeze-maximising first floor level restaurant. You won't be disappointed.

We went in for dinner because our hotel next door doesnt do meals other than breakfast. The appetizer of fried zucchini was excellent my wife does not like zucchini but she loved the balls.We both had the seafood risotto which was apart from the seafood being a little overcooked. The service is typical Ios and the veiw and experience relaxing

came back to Plaka in Aug/Sep 2014, after hearing El Pis had new chefs, we thought we would give it another try. It was so much better, No microwaves involved this time. all the food was cooked from fresh and really nice, So I would highly recommend going for an evening meal

If you want excellent reasonably priced authentic Greek food in Mylopotas look no further. We stayed in Ios for 10 nights and eat here 3 times as we wanted to eat typically Greek which isn't easy to find on Ios. The staff were so friendly and made sure we had a prime table on our last night with superb views... More
