Found this little gem near the Totem bar after walking down from the square, liked the look of the menu and decided to stay. We both tried chef specialities and we were not disappointed each meal is individual cooked with great home made sauces. We had to agree that this was probably the best Greek food we had eaten in...

We had a lovely meal here in the back streets of Skiathos.I recommend the grilled vegetables and the specials are always god value. This is family run and very friendly.There are some seats opposite the restaurant in a little area.Good value wine and excellent baklava.

Another nice little courtyard restaurant just up a cobbled side street off Papadiamanti Street. All very picturesque under a large tree with the spotless kitchen over the narrow lane. The chef wore the proper cheffy gear and the ladies wore hair nets and everything looked the business. They risked their lives bringing the food to the tables due to the... More

But I wouldn't say I was impressed. Especially as a Greek, I found the Greek salad to be terrible, and a rip-off. Pastitsio was ok, and so was my pasta (even though it should be mentioned in the menu that the shrimp is frozen).

The food here was one of the best meals we've had in skiathos! A lovely, ramshackle family run restaurant with fantastic authentic food. We had the mixed hot starter to begin with which was excellent, followed by chicken souvlaki and the moussaka. The moussaka mince was some of the best I've ever tasted with a beautiful creamy topping, but not... More

We were really impressed with the food, service and setting at this restaurant. Everything was beautifully prepared and with lovely ingredients, from the basics like the bread, to the cooked meals like the pastitsio. We came back twice because we felt it was the best Greek food we'd had on Skiathos Island. The setting is lovely, down a little side... More
