“A must visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We took a two day trip from Kusadasi, Turkey by ferry and happened upon this hidden gem after visiting the Potami Falls just opposite the beach. What a perfect ending to a perfect day! The service was great and the drinks were incredible! The beach and music added to the aura. Can't wait to share this place with family. Will definitely visit again next year!

“Life's a beach at Hippy's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

Beautifully located and decorated, Hippy's is unassuming and makes the day at Potami beach even better.
Potami beach in itself is beautiful with crystal clear turquoise sea. The loungers on the beach were perfect to enjoy Hippy's great cocktails.
In the early afternoon the shade around the restaurant and the vegetable garden provide respite from the sun. The laid back atmosphere and genuinely friendly service made me feel at home.
The food is simple yet creatively chosen from Greek and international receipes. The fresh ingredients and correct preparation resulted in incredibly tasty dishes.
I will go back.

“impolite unfriendly”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2011

Such a nice place in such a good area but thats all it is we visited today the restaurant hippy's and we were really disappointed by the behavior and unfriendliness no welcoming no smiles . we thought ok .... maybe they are tired lets sit down ... the blond guy asked how many we were and pointed a table we didn't have the choice to choose our table then asked "what do you want " pressing his hands over the table ( which was un comfortable _short_) when he brought the forks he dropped them hard but then ok he arranged them food came fast it was ok a bit expensive though never came to ask if we need something . at the end wile i was still eating came and started collecting empty plates with out asking and also took my knife he delivered as the bill without asking it and after five minutes demanded to pay him .. he counted the coins one by one in front of as took them no thank you said at any time by them.... and of course no goodbyes ..... terrible they should be ashamed treating they clients like that.... we gave them money after all...snobbish arrogant b... s

“If you are looking for a perfect place ................”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2011

Hippy's is a splendid place where to spend the day @ sea.
Whenever you pop up there's always a quiet place on the beach where to lay on a beach-bed and enjoy the refreshing gentle breeze.
If contrarily you wish to enjoy the "Chill" music @ the bar, just make your own choice ...... and ask for one of friut based Eli's cocktails.
But the real reason to pass by, is the restaurant where you ask for both traditional Greek cusine & Intl food. Peter (the Chef) will satisfy even the more demanding personal taste.
I have had such a good time that cannot refrain from suggesting "Hippy's" to my good Tripadvisor followers.
