Good Food in a Typical Family Run Taverna

Visited 3 times during our 2 week holiday and had wonderful food with daily specials supporting the menu. Free wine, metaxa or coffee to thank diners for their custom. Always busy when other tavernas were struggling for customers at this time in the season. I recommend a visit.

Very friendly, fast, fast, service - you could be in and out here in less than an hour! Have to say the meals we both had were ordinary and we had better on every trip to Skiathos Town. The Kanapitsa Taverna further down the road is different class.

We went to Johnny's because we had heard lots of good things about this place. When we arrived it wasnt over busy so we could chose where we wanted to sit which was at the back so we could enjoy the scenery. The staff were very pleasant and it had a nice feel to the place. I ordered maria's garlic... More

We went to johnny's twice in one week it was that good. The setting,service,food and value for money was fantastic. We were made to feel most welcome. This family Run restaurant was extremely busy but they were fantastic in coping with everyone's demands. Would highly recommend visiting this restaurant and we all can't wait to go back again next year.

When a restaurant is run by a Greek family in the land where the great-grand father of the owner was growing tomatoes 100 years ago there is little left to be said. Great greek tastes that keep getting modernized every year and people who give their warmth in their food and service. A no miss.

Only went once, wish we had found this place in our first week so we could have gone again. Lovely home cooked food and good service. Wasn't sure at first just because of the name... But I was wrong, very Greek. Highly recommended.

Great food with a fantastic atmosphere and great service. Furthermore, the staff are very friendly and professional while prices are only slightly higher than other tavernas.

You are given a warm welcome by Yannis (Johnny) and his staff on arrival and throughout your meal. All the food is freshly cooked by his wife and on the three occasions we ate there, we were not disappointed. From Calamari and fresh anchovies to the kleftico or creamy chicken souvlaki, we were never disappointed. The portions are generous and... More
