Multiple choices from the big menu.

The menu includes most of the typical greek dishes, also deserts and ice cream. In my opinion the quality was average if i have to compare with the price. The typical liquor 'Rakomelo' was strong but good after the meal. The waitress with black hair seems to be a serious person but it is really... read more

Eccentric entertainment and honest home cooking is the reason for coming here. I've seen that others criticise the abruptness of one of the waiters, but this is just his manner at first encounter. Perhaps he could try harder, but he certainly remembers likes and disliked and anticipates on subsequent visits. Nicholas has excellent guides to Folegandros that give his own... More

Nice looking restaurant in chora with in a good location. Happy with the location, the restaurant is nice and really islandy... But the waiter is very abrupt. Doesn't even acknowledge you when you speak with him. I wont go again.

This place is really nicely located and looks like a nice cosy place at first. However it is Quite overpriced and full of flies that make the experience quite disappointing. The breakfast we had was nothing special and probably the highest we paid so far for the same things pretty much we take every day.

For two years this little place was our favourite hangout in the daytime, playing back gammon, chess etc. The food is as good as any of the restaurants here and the menu is endless! They have a huge selection of fresh juices, milkshakes, snacks, omelets, crepes and full dinner menu with lots and lots to choose from. And the guys... More

This place is a treasure. When we first arrived on the island, as it is in the first main square, we just walked by it the first night or two. But I kept smelling this amazing scent of wood fire and coals, and it quickly dawned on me that while many places on the island were cooking on an open... More

My family discovered Folegandros 8 years ago and have returned 5 times because of the simple, incredible beauty and light of the island, the kindness and warmth of the people and the safety for our children...and the food of Nico's Taverna! The best breakfasts, cappuccinos, pastas and salads and the best of all Greek fare! Nico and Vassilis are the... More

Have been coming to this same Taverna since 1988. I believe it's been here since 1986. Trust me there was zero tourist infrastructure back then and he's been here serving up great food and fun for all these many years. We return year after year as do many people we've met here from different countries (France, Italy, Netherlands, Germany and... More

If you want a colourful blend of good service, an overwhelming menu, great drinks, misogynistic banter and a guide to the parts of Folegandros that you don't see on the postcards then this is the place for you. The best part of this restaurant is that Nicolas (the friendly owner), has literally thought of everything to avoid the usual pitfalls... More
