Busy but good

We've eaten here before and were trying to find it again when we stumbled across it. It was really busy but we managed to get a table. My husband had fresh swordfish and he got a huge piece which was really nice. I had mussel sagnaki and it was gorgeous. Enjoyed the live music too. Enjoyable... read more

Recently refurbished restaurant, pity there isn't a rating between average and very good because it is better than average, but not what we would call very good. Not easy to find on first visit, it is in the back streets between the main street and the old port, one street over from Restaurant 1901 There seems to be live greek... More

Flour of us were on the way to 1901 but as it was full stumbled on this one around the corner. The restaurant is situated on the cobbled streets and is typically Greek with a lively atmosphere and Greek live music. The food we ordered was served hot (as is not the case in many Greek restaurants) and was full... More

set under Mulberry trees in the heart of the town. Great authentic food and a lovely atmosphere. Went back a couple of times at different times of the day and wasn't disappointed, Food is amazing and very good value.

The restaurant is very nice with fine live Greek music. But the food was really bad, and so was the service. This was the worst restaurant we tried out in the two weeks we were in Skiathos.

We ate there 3 times during our 7 days at skiathos island! Fab Greek food, pretty location in a small square with stone houses and a beautiful tree and very good atmosphere with live Greek music! Service is friendly! You have to go once when you visit skiathos! Go early to find a table or make a reservation is very... More

You might need a map and compass to find this taverna in the myriad of backstreets but it is worth the search. Located in tiny streets there is always a table available as they'll just bring another one out further down the street. Great service, good traditional food and reasonable prices

The place was good enough to make me write my first recommendation in years The fact that a lot of the tables are reserved should tell you something. The best restaurant of the ones we tried in Skiathos. Perfect for couples and families. Not party. They have this really nice, elderly man playing guitar. A mellow, soothing voice. Perfect.
