One of the best seafood restaurants in town. Cozy-Family environment will make u feel comfortable. Most important the always fresh fish, the rare sea deliquinces the good wine and the amazing grill work that Dimitris doing on his handmade grill.

“Five-star sea food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Though there is a temptation to sit at the adjacent Nireas which is larger, Sea Star is of higher quality. Better service and fresher food. Fantastic recommendations too, from the friendly staff. Make sure you try the octopus (no lemon, it is sun-dried) and of course the Symi shrimps! Enjoy!

“Authentic Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

The octopus is sun-dried for a day and a half on the roof and cooked in front of you, the eggplant salad is homemade and absolutely delicious, the 'fries' are hand cut potatoes from Rhodes and the fish is super-fresh and cooked by the owner before your eyes. To top it off, the house wine matches the cuisine perfectly. An absolute authentic experience. Go past the touts and find this gem for yourself.

“Expected better...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Very pleasant welcome and nice setting under a large pergola outdoors.
First I had a fine giant bean purée, then a too cold and too oily marinated fish.
Then I had the baby stuffed squids, speciality of the house, I expected better, they were deep fried, just OK (the cats nearby helped me...)
As a dessert I had yoghurt with candied lemon : delicious !

“Great Greek!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Other restaurants have fairy lights and a well placed person, tempting you inside. None of this needed here. It is just a fabulous place to eat, with the freshest of food, served by a man with a huge personality and charm which feels entirely genuine.

He'll show you his selection of fresh fish in the chiller, and then you see it come out, seasoned and ready to go on the barbecue. A few minutes later, you are eating beautifully, simply cooked food in a lovely setting. It feels authentic, proper and not touristy.

Worth looking for, although it is not so hard to find.
