Enjoyable food

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 :)

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 ladies could not decide on the fish so he brought 3 types on a platter... 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
