“Not as tasty as we had hoped”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We visited this restaurant later in the evening. It was already quite full with other people. We ordered tzatziki and bread as a side dish which came out very thick with little taste to it.

The pizza was a good size with a generous amount of toppings.

We ordered a glass each of red wine, and were offered from a selection. Unfortunately we decided upon the house wine which was very sweet and undrinkable.

Staff were friendly, and did not reflect the quality of the food. The restaurant itself had plenty of outdoor seating which was in a good location on the harbour. It was well set out. We were left feeling upset that the food had not lived up to what we had hoped. It may have been a better experience earlier on in the evening.

There appeared to be a delivery service.

“Great value restaurant in Yialos harbour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

I always visit the Dolphin at least once during my Symi holiday. It's in a good position for people watching and a pleasant stroll round the harbour after dinner. It's also excellent value for money. I ate there in September and my meal of pasta with a ham and tomato sauce, bread and a glass of white wine was 9.5 euros. The wine here is only 1.5 euros a glass and very drinkable IMHO.
