This Taverna is situated a fair way up the Mian street where the road left and right. We came here for lunch a walked a fair way because everywhere was really busy as we had just had a thunderstorm. There was only one waiter who was struggling by himself and the service slow and somewhat chaotic. His motivation was not... More

Very enjoyable meal. Good value for money as well. Wine was very drinkable which in Greece is a plus. Tzaki was very good. Great texture. Service was very friendly. My souvlaki was very good and moist. It came with flat bread and onion salad. My wife's chicken dish was also very good. 2 large beers also. All for 40 euros.

ELLADOS GEFSIS (TASTES OF GREECE) Planning a vacation around a restaurant sounds weird, but this is exactly what we’ve done (sort of) for the past eight years, and obviously never been disappointed. Ellados Gefsis is a restaurant/Taverna near the Port of Skiathos, the “Mamma Mia” island in the Northwestern Sporades Island chain. The restaurant has been open for about ten... More

If you think that a typical greek taverna serves you the typical home made food of the greek "jaja" (grandmother), think again. But if you visit Ellados Gefsis, you'll find out how it's supposed to taste. Great service and knowledge from the waiters underlines the total experience. The charismatic owner of the restaurant often has time to chat with the... More

We visited on a windy evening and were grateful for the sheltered rear section of the taverna. Down one wall is an interesting map showing Greece as it was two thousand years ago. What is different about this taverna compared with the others on the island is its many "different" types of recipes from other islands. They are all different... More

This restaurant is a gem among so many all nearly identical restaurants in Skiathos Town. An exquisite menu with only specialties from all over Greece, with a fine (photo) menu to clarify that. The owner takes all the time to help you with the choice. In addition, the kitchen is fantastic, the food is of an excellent taste. Okay, the... More

During the week we spent at Skiathos, I made it sort of a goal to try the moussaka at every restaurant and taverna where we had dinner. This one was definitely my favourite! A bit too cheesy and salty for my friend, but I loved it. In addition, they had a book with pictures of all the dishes they served... More

We ate there last night and were not disappointed. There were lots of dishes I would have happily chosen but I selected the local meatballs which were served with tsatsike, pitta bread and slices of baked potatoes. My wife was equally undecided but selected the briam. Both were excellent choices. We were not rushed and enjoyed a leisurely meal. One... More
