“It has been a long time since fish tasted this good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

You can find Scorpios restaurant just outside the new part of town in Monemvasia.
The restaurant is painted light blue and has a very nice sea side terrace right by the sea.

In the town, the waiters of the various restaurants will try to lure you in asap, but after a short stroll you will be given the time to look at the menus of the restaurants. Once we arrived at the one of Skorpios we were told what the fresh fish of the day was. But we were told as well what dishes were made from frozen fish... frozen, because it just wasn't the season to get these fresh.

It came to us as very honest and you can feel all is done with passion.
The service is outstanding and with a smile. Together with great food, this makes this a lovely restaurant experience!

I would for sure recommend the red mullet and the little squids.
It was been already a long time since fish tasted this good! Enjoy!!

“Simple food, well cooked, served with a smile.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

If you're after authentic Greek country food this place is as good a bet as any other in monemvasia. We had a good selection of mainly vegetable based stuff. And a decent chunk of grilled sausage. All good solid stuff. Fresh ingredients well executed. Nothing too exciting but a decent meal at a good price. Charming service too. This review seems a bit downbeat but it's not supposed to be. It's hard to really rave about traditional country cooking but that's what makes Scorpios a lovely place for a relaxed meal. Not somewhere you'd drive for hours to visit but if you happen to be in town you'd be happy to be there.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Tasty choices, fresh ingredients, friendly staff and owner, composes a wonderful restaurant to try the Greek kitchen, and fresh fish. Much better than most of the restaurants inside the Monemvasia rock.

“Lovely spot, decent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Well worth a visit. Good food - the moussaka and the spinach pie and the red peppers stuffed with feta particularly good. And the view is sensational.

“Best fish in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

This restaurant, run by a husband and wife team, is beautifully set seaside in the new part of town, over looking the bay, and the towering rock of Monemvasia. The food is the daily catch, and very fresh. There are village women in the kitchen cooking up regional dishes, all with local ingredients. The wine is from the owner's father's vineyard. Service is of the friendliest.
