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.

Excellent Greek cuisine, wonderful staff, THE place to go to for lunch or dinner when you visit this lovely island. But: don't tell anybody and let's keep it a secret, ok?

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

Two years on since our last visit to Tinos, would this Taverna be any different to last time? Certainlythe staff hadn't changed, we recognised most of the faces, but then it's probably a family concern anyway. The menues had been given a facelift but still included all the great (vegetarian) dishes that we we loved last time. We ate here... More
