We selected this restaurant based on the reviews on TripAdvisor for my daughters 18 birthday dinner party. Made a reservation for 7 people. The location of the estaurant is unique in the middel of the old toen of Parikia. The menu is good and 5 of us wanted the lamb. The waiter told us they only had lamb for 4,... More

read a lot about this restaurant and was prepared for more but in the end thought it was too expensive for what it provided and would not go back. In a neoclassical building in the town with an interesting view of market street. Nice setting and the chairs are very comfortable but the tables are very tightly packed on the... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal beautifully served. We had a mixture of local fish and meat at very reasonable price. The setting is ideal as you are above the lanes and can watch passers by and local life. The table settings are particularly attractive and would appeal in any good quality restaurant.

We found this restaurant on Tripadvsior and we had a great time there. It's a Mediterranean restaurant with only a small variety of dishes, but all of them are delicious. We went there twice in 8 days. Try the steamed mussels, best ever!

The small restaurant in a long row of port restaurants, but with pleasant personnel, plain but delicious homemade seafood dishes. Highly recommended

We went to this restaurant after it was recommended by the owner of our apartment, we were not disappointed, the setting on a balcony overlooking the old town is perfect, romantic but interesting as well. The food did the position justice, starters of mussels and smoked salmon salad were delicious and almost big enough for a main course. The main... More

As far as I understood this restaurant is one of the few gourmet options in Parikia. I liked the decent not that long menu with clear fancy flavours.

We went to Franca Scala twice for dinner during our 4 days stay in Paros (it tells you how much we enjoyed the food and setting there!) We were in Paros at the end of the low season, which means a lot of restaurant in town were closed and most places were fighting for tourists in the evening. When we... More

Franca Scala is located in old town, and has a great terrace where you can sit and view people passing by below while you enjoy your food. The food is the Greek staples, and is delicious and well prepared from quality ingredients. Service is major European city standard, not slow Greek island standard. A very well managed restaurant, and we... More
