Very good!

A lovely taverna situated in the old town just past the old port. Serviced by a lovely waiter we enjoyed our time at this taverna. The food was good and service excellent. The main attraction though was the view. Simply stunning.

I just read older reviews, I guess things got better in 2014. We saw the Taverna from the near cliff and decide to give it a try. Very polite waiter, food came quick enough. We had fish as starter, steak, they were OK. The view is excellent, and the place is calm and quiet.

Ate here last night, been a few times before and enjoyed it. Huge portions, but very tasty food, and a bonus it has to have one of the best positions in Skiathos the views are amazing.

The Plakes tavern is at so great place, with so nice sea view to small Bourtzi peninsula and old port, that you will be quite happy just to seat there. Anyway, it seems that people enjoyed their meals, because we have ordered only cakes and wine. Place you must visit again, even it is not easy to find it through... More

The centre of Skiathos town is always heaving and so this lovely little spot in the back streets is a welcome respite. We ate on the lower terrace and had a nice fresh salad to share as starter followed by chicken and calamari. Both were simple and perfectly cooked. The house white wine was very nice. Give it a try,... More

Better that the restaurant had stayed closed! We had waited for months for this Taverna to open it's doors and finally on Sat 10 August they once again re-opened (same owner, new licence). We waited 30 mins before we could order a drink. A further 15 mins for the drinks to arrive, 30 mins before the simple mezze arrived which... More

We were disappointed to find this restaurant wasn't open this year. As we were a big group we had hoped to book this restaurant as we have always had good food and service here. The views are the icing on the cake
