Good food, nice location

Sat at a table outside on the port and watched the sailors come and go. Food was fairly typical, rustic Greek fare which did not veer too far from the well trod path of typical, rustic Greek fare served across the Islands. I am writing this some time after the experience and cannot say anything... read more

Nestled in the Wonderful Port of Ios... Just a little away from the bustle.. But close enough to see the action... With amazing local food cooked fresh at very cheap prices... The service is so friendly you feel like one of the family... Amazing place... Gotta try the Grilled Octopus..

Rustic, simple and fantastic food. Tables at the side of the port. The meze is wonderful. I would recommend it.

We loved the food here so much we visited three times in our ten day stay on Ios. The meze portions are hearty and the ingredients all fresh and delicious. There's nothing fancy here, just delicious, well-prepared food. The setting is also lovely - all the tables are outside overlooking the port so there's lots to see while you enjoy... More

We only ate here once while we were on Ios - the season was starting to shut down, but we still had a lovey meal, reasonably priced and right on the waterfront - lovely

We came here several times during our visit to Ios. A family-run restaurant with seemingly many regulars, tourists and locals alike. It felt very authentic, relaxing and comfortable. Could spend lots of time there! Would recommend the stuffed peppers, hummus, spicy local cheese, the calamari and the chicken fillets. Not all together! The portions are large! Good value for money.... More

On our first night on Ios we had dinner at this little restaurant and it was all our host promised it to be. Excellent rosé wine; we shared a lot of meze including the Greek salad with local cheese (so much better than just feta), zucchini balls, wild greens (horta), tzatsiki and small fried fish. We also shared a grilled... More

family run great restaurant. Great for meze the food just kept coming. Set by the port not only is the food good you have a lovely setting as well. The food and alcohol is very cheap for what you get.
