This restaurant was the best I visited in Paros! Very cute location in one of those small streets of the old city.The staff was very helpful and recommended an amazing wine for our dinner. Calming and romantic atmosphere!

Stylish establishment on a surprising location in the old town. Nice, quiet background music, good service, and excellent food. Not cheap, but certainly worth it!

Nice spot in old town where you can eat on a deck over looking the shopping activities on the street below. Had the traditional cheese with honey and sesame seeds as an appetizer then had the untraditional mushroom risotto and salmon. All dishes were excellent.

Had a great meal here. Salmon and sautéed veg. My wife's salad was also delicious. Relaxing atmosphere and music. Go if you are in town.

The service was very slow as there was only one waiter to serve 8 tables. We waited for the meal, the dishes to be cleared and never even received our dessert.

Apparently you can get great views in Paros even when you're not by the water. Sitting on the patio of Franca Scala surrounded by the quite, cute little streets and buildings was lovely. I think sitting inside would have also been nice, with clean decor and live piano music. My friends and I shared the bread with dips and grilled... More

We had dinner at Franca Scala in September during our stay in Parikia. We were staying at Hotel Dina right across the street. We also stayed there 6 years ago, and every evening from our balcony, we looked at the terrace at Franca Scala, and vowed that when we returned, we would have dinner there...and we did! You walk up... More

Excellent meal. I had the rabbit and my husband the chicken with pasta. Large portions and good value for money. A real find.
