Very nice local restaurant

We ate here twice as the welcome was very good as was the food. The second night we skipped the starters as the portions are large. Traditional Greek fayre and welcome creates a nice atmosphere for a family meal.

We tried the restaurant as it seemed welcoming. It was rather busy but yet the service didn't take long and it was friendly professional service. The food from the family run restaurant was delicious (my wife is Greek and knows her Greek cuisine) with good recommendations from the waiters. The price was good too. We highly recommend this restaurant!!

Loved the free dessert! And the fried eggplant and veal dish. Salad was OK but too much mayonnaise for my liking.

Another restaurant we were eager to visit in Tinos. I can say straight away that this was one of the poorest restaurants we visited in Tinos. This restaurant caters mainly for large groups of pilgrims. The food they serve is uninspiring and lacks refinement and taste. The best part of our visit was observing the large groups of (mainly female)... More

Visit this lovely restaurant with an authentic Greek-island cuisine. It's in a little square just along the port with a Dolphin statue. The owner and the staff are extremely friendly and English spoken and the hospitality is great. You have to try the typical Cyclades island dishes : tomato balls and zucchini ( or courgette) balls. They are excellent as... More

We have been in Tinos for 4 days and will stay 8 more. Because of tripadvisor we decided to go to Epineio. Total disapointment! Food was heavy and salty! The worst restaurant 'til today. Best was Nautilus in ormo Isterrnia (fisher place) and 2nd Porto Raphael (hotel) in Iuoannis, with true family Greek healthy food.

A very good Taverna-like restaurant within Tinos. Highly recommended for very good traditional/island Greek cuisine. One can visit it on an everyday basis. Outside sitting area is very pleasant both for lunch and for dinner. All plates are very good (try for example barbecued octapus or aubergine salad), and the service is first class. One can have a very rich... More

We found this gem by accident and couldn’t have been more pleased. The food was of the freshest quality. We had several appetisers and two main courses and there was nothing we did not like and was good value for money. The menu was in a few languages however not really a tourist restaurant as mainly Greek patrons, with enough... More
