Our fourth trip to Skiathos and a definite on our list was the VARTHALAMIS! Being late September, we were slightly worried that the restaurant would be closed but, no, there was Nikos ready to welcome us. It is so lovely to be remembered every time you visit. The food was excellent, as always. I had the stuffed aubergines and my... More

Me and my wife always make a point to eat here a couple of times during our stay in Skiathos. This is a very typically run family Greek restaurant. Nikos is always very pleased to see us and welcomes us with a big smile as soon as he sees us walking up the cobbled street! Yes he truly remembers you!... More

Previously been to Varthalamis with my parents and my children. This time there were just the two us. It was the sweetest thing that the waiting staff remembered us and made a great fuss over us. We had pretty much the same food as last time - a great plate of fish which despite not being a menu item, they... More

My wife and I stumbled across this restaurant having been to the old port house for a few drinks. We were planning on going somewhere else but the tables on the cobbled street were very quaint and the menu looked good. The waiter who served us was probably the best we encountered on our whole holiday. He was so friendly... More

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
