“One of our favorite Greece memories”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

We stumbled upon Skorpios on an afternoon shopping stroll from Monemvasia into Gefyra when we paused to take some photos from their waterfront. The menu looked nice, so we made a reservation for our family that evening and returned to take up our table a mere two feet above the lapping waves with a gorgeous view across the water toward Monemvasia, where the sunset turned the vast rock a delightful array of colors for our evening's entertainment.
The view alone would have been enough to justify the stop, but the food and the service at Skorpios were top notch as well, and when you combine it all you have a lasting memory of all there is to love about Greece.

“A Great Greek Birthday Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

First time we have eaten at this restaurant even though we have been told about it by Greek friends. They were not mistaken. It was a double birthday which was great as people kept turning up with presents as we ate! The vegetarian starter was a meze of everything the restaurant serves and it was simply fantastic - meat eaters and vegetarians loved it. The main course was a variant of 'fish soup' and was two meals in one. Again all of the fish and vegetables were very fresh and delicious.
Special word on the house wine! It is made by the owners father in a nearby village and is a cut above the usual wine that comes out of industrial sized plastic bags and is always served cold. The red was served a the normal temperature and was very good with lots of depth for a country wine. The free cake desserts at the end of the meal were a nice touch.
The price of 53 euro for four adults was very good value for Monemvasia

“nice place on the harbour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

We just went there for a grilled octopus before walking back to the Kastro, so we cannot judge the food of a full meal; friendly service; place is quieter than the ones closer to the bridge. Outstanding view by the sea.
