Wow, what a place. The food is really but the service and atmosphere is what makes this place really stand out. Our waiter could not have been more friendly and worked tirelessly all evening. In fact, it was so good that we went back a couple of nights later, the only time we've eaten at the same place twice. We... More

We were recommended this place by a local... service extremely friendly, setting lovely in the cobbled streets of Skiathos town. The food was such a disappointment though... and more expensive than round the corner! Mixed Grill was inedible... such a shame.

We had eaten here before in the lovely bouganvillea lined streets of Skiathos town, so searched for Maggie and her flyers. She was not hard to find near the Open air cinema. She remembered us from last year and we were soon seated with our free carafe of wine. The food was as delicious and plentiful as we had remembered... More

We came upon this restaurant by accident whilst wondering around Skiathos Town. We were given a flyer for free wine. We had tzakiki, cheese pies, stuffed tomatoes & meatballs. The portion sizes were really good & we were given a little heart shaped ice cream at the end of the meal. A lot of the locals eat here and it... More

Our extended family have eaten here over the past 3 years & never had a bad experience. We visited last week & again were not disappointed. Wonderful welcome, speedy service, quality food. Best of all is the bill - for 7 of us, 2 courses, including wine & beers, 80 Euros! Just off the main street in town, whether 7pm... More

This is a street restaurant, located in the alleyways. There was a lady giving out flyers offering a free half litre of wine on Pap Street so we decided to go and see what it was like. We both had papoutsakia (aubergines stuffed with mince/onion/tomato mixture and topped with a Bechamel sauce - known as 'Little Shoes'), this is one... More

We dined here a day before we went home and wish we had found it sooner. The Greek Salad was fantastic and the mixed grill my wife had was enormous and my fish was perfectly cooked and very well priced.The tapenad with the bread was a nice touch. Service was excellent and we couldnt have been made more welcome, a... More

This is a difficult review to write. Very friendly and helpful owner and my Greek Salad was fresh and crisp. The main courses though, well, I truly wish I had taken a photograph of Dave's mixed grill. For a start you get extremely small oval plates and on this were some truly horrible burnt offerings, the lamb chop was merely... More
