“Ruined last night of our holiday”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2011

We decided to go to this restaurant for the last night of our holiday as it looked so gorgeous overlooking the harbour. We endured terrible service and the only bad food of our week spent in Skiathos. Please spend your money elsewhere as the only reason this restaurant is packed every night is the location and the really pretty touches.

“Beautiful restaurant but horrible service with an average food.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2011

We were in this place once and would never go back. On arrival we were waiting 30 min to order drinks while other greek guests were seated later and served first. While we were ordering drinks the waiter wasn't friendly at all. We felt like he only wanted to bring us something, get money and get rid of us. Food was delivered after another long wait and wasn't hot. The quality was just ok despite the high price of the meals. At the end we couldn't get our bill so walked to the lady on reception and paid there. She was trying to apologise but seemed like it wasn't the first time. Really stylish place but the service is not what it could be.

“Do not waste your money, average food, nice setting, appalling service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2010

We went here expecting a fantastic meal in a lovely setting with fabulous service. There were 6 of us wanting to experience a treat the night before our return home. How wrong can you be........
Firstly watching the staff delivering food to tables (checking out the dishes) we quickly noticed that the staff were constantly delivering the wrong food to the wrong tables. Staff didn't seem to know if they were coming or going.
We ordered starters and mains. Starters came in about 30 mins, nice but average, nothing special. We then waited over an hour for our main courses. When it came 4 of the 6 dishes were freezing cold. After taking a while to actually attract someones attention we sent the dishes back to be warmed, 3 of them were seafood pasta dishes. There was no apology and 10 minutes later they came back and plonked (literally) the dishes back in front of the 4 that were missing. The dishes were still onloy luke warm but now having waited nearly an our and a half and it being 11pm, we were suppose to be meeting friends an hour before, the dishes were eaten but not fully. However there were 2 dishes (different) with 2 large mussels on only one of the 4 mussels were edible, 3 were still closed. Can't believe they even put them on the plates. By this time we were all rather unhappy, nobody had come over to ask if our dishes were ok, it was near on impossible to get any waiters attention.
I appraoched the front of house lady who had seated us to say we were unhappy with the food and service and would like to talk to the manager, ten minutes past, nobody came over and the dirty dishes remained on the table. She then came over and said we could have free deserts but we didn't want any as we had to go. We asked again to see the manager, another 10-15 minutes and nobody came, dishes still there.
I re approached the girl again and said if nobody came to speak t us then we would not be willing to pay our bill and we would be leaving.
The plates were cleared, after 5 minutes the head waiter appeared with desserts, which we had said we didn't want. He seemed annoyed that we would not accept them and be quiet.
We tried to tell him the issues with our meal, he would not listen to us so things became slightly heated, more so on his part. It got to the point where he was slamming my husbands chair (he had stood due to the agression of the waiter) on the floor repetedly and shiuting at us you eat the food you pay. We had told them we were happy to pay for everything except the 4 main dishes.
The man was being very agressive, it was quite frightening and also very embarrasing in a restaurant full of people and aconstant flow of people walking past.
The waiter was pulled away from us threatening to call the police. At this point it was 12pm and we wanted the whole experience to end.
My husband went over to the bar area and asked for the bill from who we later discovered was the owner who had just stood there abnd watched the whole thing. They did take 30 euro off the bill but we only received a sorry from the owner as we handed over our money and left.
|t ruined our night and we are all still in complete disbelief at the horrendous service we received. Do not be fooled by the look of the place, worst restaurant experience of my life!!!
