Nice cozy restaurant in an enclosed courtyard. Really nice food and great service from friendly staff. Not been here for a few years but it,s back on the "to do" list for next year.

Got the salad called Afrodite but was missing some cheese to make it more tasty. Our main courses were veal in red tomato sauce and veal with onions in red sauce (called stifado in Greek cuisine ). Both were delicious. Service was very good and there was complementary desert. Nice armospher, nice dinning indeed!

This restaurant is in a lovely location down a little alley which opens up into a large open air court. The waiters were lovely and attentive. It was a particularly warm night on our visit but there was large fans keeping the restaurant cool. We ordered sausage saganaki and prawn saganaki which were both delicious. For our main courses we... More

We stumbled across Paraxenos in Skiathos town, it's set off the main strip and hidden a little in a garden-style courtyard. The staff were smiley and charming and found us a table quickly. We had the tzatziki which was creamy and delicious followed by the the lamb kleftiko and beef stamnas. Both dishes were incredibly well seasoned and the meat... More

We tried this place, because of the lovely courtyard setting. The menu is typical Skiathos, but we all ordered filet mignon and we were not disappointed. Very tender and well cooked with a choice of sauces - very nice indeed!

Besides the setting and the service, which are both great, this restaurant does not really offer much more. Sadly the food is very average and you can find better Greek food, in many other places.

We have visited this restaurant several times with various size groups and have always received a warm welcome, great service and fabulous food. The restaurant is tucked down one of the side streets and feels like sitting in a lovely garden courtyard. Plenty of fans to keep you cool too which is important in August!

We found this restaurant as we were walking down one of the side streets just off the main strip and what a beautiful restaurant it was. The setting is lovely when you walk through the entrance and the chairs were all wicker style which made the setting really lovely set amongst all of the plants. The waiters were all really... More

The restaurant is one of the most attractive in the town. The staff are efficient but not the friendliest we've come across. The food was good but not brilliant but that may be down to our choices that night. A cat under the table eagerly waiting for my fish bones was not particularly appealing. Lots of people in there so... More

We came across this restaurant just off the Main Street. The greeting was warm and friendly and the waiters are all very good at their jobs. The setting is in a vine covered court yard which is very pleasant. The menu is quite extensive and so was the wine list. The food was tasty and also nice and hot. I... More
