The real deal

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... read 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

We passed the restaurant and thought its busy it's got to be good and we were misled. I choose the house special klefitiko which was poor whilst my wife went for the sardines which were presented messy. Sorry didn't get this place.

You cannot miss this restaurant! It has amazing food. I am including pictures with my review to show you how beautiful it was. Very delicious. Plus the service was friendly and nice. We had the chicken souvlaki, sardines, pork chops and fried cheese. We were so sad we came here on the last day of our trip, had we found... More

We have always made a point of eating here ever since it opened a few years ago.Litsa the owner is a lovely friendly lady and will think nothing of sitting down at your table for a chat when she is not too busy at the end of the night. This year I had my favourite chicken in yoghurt & cumin... More

I can only agree with all the other good reviews on here. There is a wide range of traditional food on the menu and it all looks amazing! My husband said it was one of the best Klefikos he had ever had. When I asked what food they had for vegetarians, the lady spent time going through my options with... More
