This is a truly delightful Taverna...it is also fair to say it is one of a number of lovely Taverna's in this delightful fishing village. You can simply relax and have a highly unstructured but excellent (fish) meal as the sun drenches the pretty view and you ponder the beauty of Greece! I could... read more

Had read all the reviews and were looking forward to a good meal at Ta Kochilia, unfortunately they did not deliver: my wife had an awful, sweet, slimy cuttlefish stifado (with very little actual cuttlefish!) and I had tough-as-old-boots "octopus in a red wine sauce" served...without any sauce whatsoever, dry, chewy, probably the worst meal we have ever had in...

We left 10 minutes ago with family and liked it very much. Only problem is that they bring too much, so order carefully

Ate there with friend as family. The location is amazing, on the beach front with view across to St. Nicolas island. The good is simply top Greek cuisine, we ate sea food mostly (shrimp, calamari, salads, octopus, etc). Also the people are very friendly and the prices are fair. Definite recommendation!!

Good food and very pleasant owner and waitress. The small fresh squid was excellent but only available on one night we were there.

Romantic and scenic location - one of those places where you can just sit and look out at the sea and Mochlos island all day long. Food and service are excellent too. A very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. One of our favourite places in Mochlos.
