Can't believe we've not tried Polykratis before!

Situated at the top of Papadiamantis Street, we've walked by this restaurant many times. A sudden thunderstorm meant we sheltered here this year and we're so glad we did!

Food here is a definite cut above; the bread was warm and served with dips, our shared starter and main courses authentic and delicious. We won't pass by again!

On a cloudy night, the tables overlooking the Main Street were out of action so we missed the chance to people watch, but it didn't spoil our enjoyment. The waiting staff were really friendly and we were treated to ouzo on arrival and coffee when asking for the bill. We shared a starter of asparagus wrapped in bacon. This was... More

It was quite late by the time we got to the restaurant, around 9.30pm so we were hungry! We ordered tzatziki, stuffed vine leaves, Greek salad and two mains and bread and it was like a mountain! We made a serious dent in it all, loathe to leave anything behind. I was grateful of a little help from the cutest... More

Maureen has been going to this restaurant for 15 years, it was our 1st and absolute favourite. Excellent food, service and value. Something for everyone and if you want to change a dish they will do anything for you. A lovely family restaurant with excellent standards, wish we could bring The Polykratis to England. xxx

Good choice of food with good service at a reasonable cost (as was most of Skiathos). At the end of the main street without the hustle and bustle of the main street. Only found it with three nights to go, and returned for our last night only to find it closed for a wedding, which is probable another good recommendation.

Hadn't eaten here for a few years but the staff are still as friendly & the food still as good. The baked hard cheese in honey & sesame seeds was my highlight!

After several years away from Skiathos it was nice to see that several restaurants were still in business, Polykratis is one of them. The service is very good and the food lovely and tasty. Prices were very resonable and I would urge anyone going to Skiathos town to try this restaurant. I don't think you will be disappointed.

went twice during our stay, you get ouzo when you get a table, the food is great ,the staff are most welcoming, you get a free dessert and on our last night we got a free bottle of greek wine which was a lovely surprise.although we never got chance to taste it as airport security confiscated it .
