“Seductive food in a charming environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

No visit to Skopelos is complete without a trip to Gorgones.

Gorgones is the best restaurant/ouzerie on the island, and nothing is too much for the owner/staff. The restaurant is warm and cozy during the winter and light and airy in the summer, with tables set up outside in a cute cobbled alley. The food is delicious; home-cooked with traditional passion, but elegant, plentiful and excellent value. What more could you ask for.

“Beautifully home-cooked food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

This restaurant was definately one of our best finds in skopelos town. The food here is delicious and very traditional. The owner is very friendly and the setting is very quaint. This was the only restaurant that we visited more than once during our week here in late September. No menus, but just a small kitchen with lots of lovely food for you to choose from.

“charming setting, tasty food, friendly people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We ate at Gorgones in the first week of October. The menu was limited as it was the end of the season but it was good simple food, hot and tasty and very cheap. The courtyard garden setting is characterful and different from the other restaurants in town.

“A good value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

I had the opportunity to have dinner at Gorgones twice this summer and both times was agreably surprised. The setting in what appears to be an old courtyard is nice and the dishes I ordered quite tasty and expertly cooked. A good value.
