“If you love seafood its a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

The owner is so so nice always smiling and very welcoming, we have eaten here a number of times over the last 2 years the fish if stunning some of the best I've had, as others say don't bother with a menu ask what he would recommend. You can look at the fresh fish and pick the one you fancy. Very good value but remember fish isn't the cheapest thing so ask how much in advance of him cooking it, they expect you to. If you like fish there is no place better in Lavadia that I've found..

“Never again!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

Been told that almost all in the menu was not available. Portions weak and average food. Worst service ever in the island. Overpriced.

“the last traditional fish restaurant in Livadia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

Once you have chosen your fish you can sit back and relax and watch your fish being cooked by Ilias the owner - no one can cook fish like him and they are actually caught by him on the day.
One little tip - do ask the price before ordering since some large fish can be expensive.
Delicious home made starters are served by Lisa wife of Ilias.

“Definitely overrated by earlier reviewers !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2011

We visited this place for dinner relying on the ratings we have read on trip advisor.
The owner friendly welcomed us and prepared us a grilled dorade (tsipoura). This was delicious and the price was fair. The starters were rather weak and disappointing.

“A traditional taverna with delicious seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2011

One of our favourite eateries on Tilos. Octopus on the grill is total bliss. Don't look at a menu, just ask what is good today and you will have a choice of traditionally cooked and utterly fresh dishes. A tray of fresh fish by the barbeque and you can choose the one you fancy and it will be cooked and served immediately. You can't get fresher than that.

It would be a mistake to try and find gourmet food on Tilos, but warm hospitality and accomplished traditional cooking is available in most places, of which this is probably the best.

Sitting outside as dusk falls and the candles are alight is very atmospheric. Pity there is no view, but the food and the ambience makes up for this.
