Great location, excellent food

This is the best restaurant in the town. We are on sailboat with owner-captains (Bluewater Sailing).and this is the restaurant they always visit. The tirokroketes (fried cheese balls) were excellent. I had fisherman's spaghetti that came loaded with seafood (prawns, squid, mussels). Two of the... read more

Delicious Greek food right on the beach, the fried eggplant was delicious. Mia was briefly alarmed of the decorative octopus hanging at the entry which was simply hilarious.

Spent a few nights in Kithnos in the second week of July. Picked the Byzanto Restaurant from the many on offer. We were not disappointed. Very friendly staff, excellent food, right on the beach, and draught beer! (maybe it was me but struggled to find draught beer, so extra tick in the box) Been to Greece many times but had... More

One of the most delicious cuisines you've ever tasted . . Try from the appetizers fava and feta cheese with honey. You may also taste the local meat from the island a fabulous variety of the fresh fishes. Ask the manager and friendly staff for the specials of the day !!!

Visited on five occassions as the food was very good. The mixed grill for two at just 27 euros was excellent value. And of course there is always the complimentary drink at... More

That latter part was unexpected from a nicer, sit-down restaurant. Sure, we expect to pay cash at a gyro stand, but a larger cash bill was just inconvenient for travelers in a foreign country. The service was friendly, but slow. My wife had moussaka, which was not bad, though not great. They were out of two lamb dishes I wanted... More

Fabulous food, all freshly prepared, decent prices, friendly atmosphere, again nothing was too much trouble. Compare that to some of the other restaurants, which employ "high pressure" salesmen.

This place is easily overlooked as it is surrounded by bigger restaurants with pushy PR people trying to hustle you into their establishments. However, i would suggest you ignore all these places and head into Byzantio. It was recomended to us by fellow guests and staff at our hotel. You can stop outside the restaurant and take your time looking... More
