This gastronomic journey began in 1953 in the picturesque amphitheatrical village of Glossa, on Skopelos. That year, grandmother Aglaia Stamataki and her son Nikos (grandfather of the present owner) set up a tavern that they named "Gallia" (France), to appeal to the few French tourists who visited the island at that time. In 1985, the little taverna changed its name and was rebaptized "Agnanti" (meaning "view"), to reflect its beautiful aspect over the Aegean. It was around that time that Agnanti passed into the hands of the children of grandfather Nikos: Stamatis and Mahoula Stamatakis. With their wonderful, well-prepared recipes, Agnanti immediately made an impression and gained a great reputation on the island. Their son, Nikos, knew no other life when growing up, other than Agnanti. He helped out doing little chores and entered at a very young age into the world of the magical flavours his parents created. From an early age Nikos decided that he, too, wanted to devote himself to Agnanti. The dream became a reality and Nikos has now taken on the running of Agnanti. Handed from generation to generation, Nikos feels that Agnanti is a wonderful inheritance. Honouring family tradition, he has further developed Agnanti, putting his own gastronomical stamp on today's restaurant. And so it is that little tavern that opened in 1953 has today become a great modern restaurant without losing any of its atmosphere and originality. Everyone who visits Agnanti today becomes a faithful friend. And it is these friends who, with their love and patronage, continue to write Agnanti's history.

Good food, stunning view

We loved our lunch at Agnanti. Good food with a modern touch, excellent wine, friendly service. Yes, it's a little expensive but it's worth it. The location is just perfect with stunning view over the Aegean. If you're in Glossa you should consider lunch/dinner at Agnanti.

like any other tourist, we wanted to check out this place due to its notoriety. overall, the experience was disappointing. we booked the place. at arrival, half of the menu was not available, we ate some sorts of starters and drank some wine, street food level. nothing outstanding except the bill.

Our experience of Agnanti this past year was even more pleasant than our original visit two years ago. Firstly, they do Greek food a little differently, giving it a modern bent whilst retaining traditional values and flavour. And this does put the price at overs to what you will find in a traditional Taverna. But we find it is well... More

I really enjoy eating at nice restaurants, but this was a very pretentious one. The prices were extremely expensive (at least for us Greeks) . The view is good, but very few tables can have it. The food was good, but the portions and the prices were not, so I would never visit this place again. There are lots of... More

We visited Agnanti twice in the space of a week. The first time we stumbled upon it at lunch time, and were attracted by its fabulous views. The salad with oven roasted plums was to do for!

The commanding views offered by Agnanti of Glossa Bay is a sufficient reason to eat there, so the fantastic food and friendly service is just a huge bonus. Although it was a rainy day when we had our lunch there with friends, I thought it was one of the best views on the island. Everything we ate there was very... More
