After going again after having the best meal we'd had on the island last year, we came again this year, twice in a weeks holiday. Amazing food, the best lamb dish I have ever tasted. Great hit with the locals which is always a good sign, one of my favourites.

Set in the old quarter, just off the main shopping street. Authentic Greek food and lovely barrelled wine. (why buy bottled stuff from the mainland when this is so good!). Attentive, but never pushy young staff. Certainly a place to return to when next in Skiathos Town. Prices very reasonable too!

We were recommended this restaurant and were not disappointed. Traditional Greek cuisine served in a lovely courtyard with excellent atmosphere. Lovely meal.

Going on a recomendation of friends we were initially impressed by the courtyard location. However we were left 50 Mins. without a starter even arriving. When I asked if we had been forgotten i was greeted with hostility, the waiter even coming back for a second go at us. Pity as the food eventually was very good, but a meal... More

Situated in one of the Skiathos side streets, this is a real hidden treasure that past us by for years. Entering his quaint courtyard it was obvious that the food was going to be of a high standard. The furnishings were comfortable and the service was excellent. The dishes we chose included Mushrooms and stuffed potatoes, both excellent. Main dishes... More

Recommended by another guest at our hotel which proved to be so good we went twice, the last time being for our final meal before leaving Skiathos to fly home. It’s in a side street on the left off Papadiamanti Street (of course). A courtyard setting with the kitchen over the road from it which looked very clean. The restaurant... More

We stumbled upon this place quite by accident while meandering the cobbled streets of Skiathos town. Situated up a vine lined alley with a really nice ambiance. Lovely comfy chairs and well furnished with excellent service. The food was fabulous and we couldnt stop raving about it! Cant wait to visit again on our next holiday. Highly recommended :)

We came across this lovely restaurant when we were walking the lanes and decided to return the following night for a meal. Food was lovely, I had the stuffed mushrooms and the lamb khefliko, beautiful, wish we had found it earlier as would definitely had made a second visit but sadly returning home tomorrow
