Excellent food every time!

This is our second visit to the island. We always eat at Thalassa, as the food is consistently excellent. Stuffed tomatoes and courgette flowers are two of my favourite dishes. Great value for money too and the owners are lovely people. Highly recommended!

Popular restaurant on the sea front so you may have to wait for a table in high season but the food is worth it. Great service from Nikos and Maria.

We had a really lovely evening here. There was a big group at the same time, but the waiter found us some room, eventually right at the front, overlooking the beach, and fortunately out of the way of smokers. The fish we had was really well done and very fresh. The staff were very friendly, and even the ubiquitous cats... More

Eleni, Maria and Nikos with their staff provided us with a warm welcome, a big smile and the best fresh food you can find. My personal favorite is the octopus in red wine, but most of the dishes we tried (all of the fish, the moussaka, the side dishes, even a "simple" Greek Salad) provide this extra flavor, attention and...

Right on the beach, with fresh white and turquoise decorations this family-owned restaurant serves authentic, tasty Greek food. Try for instance their mixed plate which will give you an excellent taste of all the 'good stuff'. We loved it!

Owned by a Greek family, Thalassa stands out from the rest of the taverns on the beach with its clean and crisp look. The food was great, traditional Greek dishes with a modern update. The owners were very helpful and generous about sharing tips about the island. Thank you.
