Fabulous evening meal

This taverna was recommended and we went there for our last evening meal of our holiday. We stayed in Koukounaries but we got the bus into Skiathos Town, getting off at stop #4 and strolling down to this taverna. We had a lovely meal and really enjoyed it here. Highly recommend it.

This is one of the best tavernas I have ever been into on Skiathos. You are greeted with ouzo, bread and nibbles, and everything goes steadily upwards from then on. The food is excellent, especially the Greek dishes cooked in the pot or in paper. This is a family run taverna and you can be served by the owner, his... More

We had a lovely meal myself and my husband the meal was very enjoyable in a lovely setting, because it was the last week in September it was the very last week of the holiday season and we shared the restaurant with only 5 other couples so the atmosphere was relaxed and quite. We were given a free drink at... More

Dropped in here for dinner and had the aubergine bake and greek mushrooms to start which were very good.For mains ordered meatballs in pot with diced vegetables and lamb strata which was served again in an earthenware pot, thought the meat content was on the stingy side but it did taste good. House rose palatable and free dessert at end.... More

Back again to this lovely restaurant, now a firm favourite. Always a very warm welcome from attentive staff.They have a good menu and portions are generous. My wife is not a big eater and left some of her dish, to the consternation of the head waiter. We did our best to reassure him that the food was fine. We'd had... More

A real hit for me is the complimentary ouzo when you arrive, regardless of what you will be spending. It was one of the worst night's of the bad weather and they did well keeping everyone dry and warm. I enjoyed the garlic bread with cheese and tomato, then a really tasty kleftico. All piping hot and served with a... More

During our recent holiday on Skiathos we ate here four times, each meal was perfect, from stifado, kleftiko, fresh sea bream and on one occasion minestrone soup for me as I had a very sore throat. Each time we visited we were welcomed with a glass of ouzo and a selection of dips prior to ordering. The restaurant is very... More

The food including the cheese pie for starter was beautiful filo pastry, the portions are a good size and we ended up leaving some of ours as we were more than full then... More

We visited Polykratis twice while on holiday. It is a lovely family business, everyone was friendly and welcoming. They do a delicious Lamb Kleftico. We will definitely be returning next year.
