Having noted the reviews and its proximity to our apartment, we decided to give the Lyhnari a visit. Not having booked,we managed to get the last available table - the one by the entrance & not very well lit - half-hidden by vegetation! However, we were greeted warmly and enjoyed the glass of ouzo "on the house" as we made... More

An always popular restaurant close to the centre of Skiathos Town. A good idea to book if you intend eating after 8pm as it fills up very quickly. They have a wide selection of dishes that will suit most tastes. The staff are attentive without being in your face and the food is very good. It is not the cheapest... More

We only ate here the once during our week in Skiathos as we wanted to try different restaurants. The food was very good, and was enjoyed by all. The owner/chef was really nice, and explained each dish that we had chosen from the menu, and the flavours each one had in them, and how it was cooked. Would recommend.

Loved this restaurant so much we ate there a few times. From what we heard we were not the only ones with many people booking tables in advance and returning year after year. The food was excellent, good value for money and we always got a warm welcome

We visited the Lyhnari Taverna in June 2014. It was near our hotel and one of our family members insisted we should eat there. Since it was late in the evening, the owner/chef came to our table to describe what he had left. We asked him to serve us a variety of dishes that he recommends. On leaving, one in... More

Another one on my wife’s ‘hit-list’ off Tripadvisor. In the back streets near to Post Office and high school. It is worth getting away from the harbour front to find some nice and more authentic Greek tavernas. We tried this one without a reservation. Not a chance as fully booked which is a good sign. Booked for 8pm the following... More

We've visited a couple of year ago and I was slightly disappointed this year... The food was really nice however the lack of staff made it really hard to even order a drink. When eventually catching someone who worked there he wasn't actually allowed to take an order as there was only the one man and a lady taking orders.... More

Both my wife and myself were so impressed with the quality of the food and the service that during our 5 nights stay in Skiathos we went twice to this Restaurant. All the dishes are cooked with fresh ingredients and with authentic style. The owner is taking the orders and always available to give recos. As a matter of fact,... More

We've several times to Lyhnari and enjoyed the food, but on the last 2 occasions we've been let down with the service and the food (or lack of it as they had ran out of a couple of fish dishes). Won't go back next year as it's not as good as the hype!
