Beautiful setting. Lovely balcony overlooking the paved courtyard. Attentive staff but not too pushy. Wonderful food and amazing desserts. An overall wonderful dining experience.

The stuffed mushrooms are out of this world. I am dreaming of them right now! We came on a busy night and they were able to accommodate us, which was really appreciated. The service isn't fantastic, but those stuffed mushrooms could make up for anything.

Went to this restaurant on a very quiet night, so we were basically the only customers. The service was accommodating (we asked to change tables because it was a bit chilly). Ordered some bread with dips for starters, which were nice. For mains, a big rocket and fig salad, which tasted good, specially the scattered cheese. Figs could have been... More

Amazing Food and gorgeous surroundings. We enjoyed a fabulous meal on the balcony overlooking the little streets in the main town of Parikia. The atmosphere was fantastic, the service was excellent and the food and wine were to die for !!!

Fancy restaurant in the center of Parikia’s Old Town. It was one of the more expensive restaurants we went to in Greece, but everything was delicious and service was top-notch. It was one of only two places we visited in Greece with linen napkins, which speaks to its quality. Worth a visit if you are looking for a nice and... More

We started with some delicious steamed mussels and a very good grilled squid stuffed with fresh tomatoes, mint and basil, went on with a spectacular grilled sea bream, and finished with one of the best cheescakes I have ever had. The kid had well cooked spaghetti with tomato sauce. The white wine "Franca Scala" was a good deal. The staff... More

Me and my girlfriend were looking for a special place to end up our holiday in Paros and we definetely found it! We tried many restourants in Paros but no one was like Franca Scala! It was just amazing! The location is perfect because the balcony is so romantic and even the inside is very well decorated! Everybody is friendly... More
