Lovely Setting

On the beach dining with a great selection of Greek/Turkish food, all tasting amazing. The Ephessus is a highlight to accompany many of the dishes. The restaurant was slightly busy so we didn't get that warm welcome we've experienced elsewhere, and prepare yourself for the mosquito onslaught if... read more

If you are looking for a view this is one of the best, however the service could have been much better, and order everything at once if not you will wait for an Eternity for it to arrive.

The food was great, but the hospitality was what was really special- it felt like we had enjoyed dinner in someones home. Such a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and great service. We made the mistake of going to another restaurant for dinner the... More

This restaurant has used the trees on the beach to form a quirky oasis to shade from the sun, watch the sunset and hang out. Its a shame the service or the food doesn't live up to the setting. Luckily we started our meal before it got busy but then as it filled up the staff team fell apart and... More

Paros has so many places in delightful settings with good food that it is difficult to experience them all. Ephessus is one that we keep going back to. Well trained, friendly staff and a relatively unique menu due to its Anatolian roots give it a leg up on its neighbors. Their manti are especially notable.

Couldn't fault this place. Freshly baked warm bread to dip in the freshly made hummus. Best lamb chops of a 2 week holiday. Lovely setting on the beach. Very reasonable. Perhaps the local wine was nothing more than the standard quaffable variety, but nothing wrong with it, just unremarkable.
