We had couple of hours until the ferry boat, decided to have a lunch there - great choice. Owner was very friendly, made some good jokes and finally treated us with extra wine on the house. Spaghetti with shrimps was the winner. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed zucchini balls to start, then pastitsio (very good) and pork chop (soft and full of flavour). Staff were friendly. We stayed in Loutra and came back to the port (Merichas) and enjoyed this restaurant.

Dined here with a group. The waiter was friendly and insisted that we share a collection of starters as a group. We did and they were great! I had cod for my main but didn't enjoy it as much as the starters. Definitely go and order a few starters and you won't even need a main. Also great setting on... More

We went there twice during our first stay on Kythnos and highly recommend it to anyone. The owner is, to quote him, "the best boy, but no playboy" and makes you feel like you are family. The prices are very reasonable and the food is just delicious. I can't think of anything i wouldn't recommend, but just as the waiter... More

We spent few days in Knythos and finally went to Byzantio. The location of the Restaurant is excellent (especially in the evening when the Sun goes down). You can choose any kind of seafood but highly recommend to ask the owner to offer something special. He is really good guy. I'll be back :)
