“Good food but poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Situated around a square and got very busy. Main course was good and decided to have a desert but after waiting over half an hour for it we gave up.

“A Real Greek Taverna”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Have eaten here many times over the years, the food is good but not outstanding, what makes it a great place is the location, musicians and atmosphere.
This is our 'first night' tavern every time we visit Skiathos because, being so traditionally greek, it really sets the tone for the rest of a holiday.

“True Greece at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Taverna Alexandros is absolutely amazing - its a true gem hidden in the back streets of skiathos town but you must find it because you will have an amazing night there.

while you eat a fantasic greek meal you will be entertained by traditional greek music including bouzouki music and guitar music.

we went 3 times on our two week holiday and had to spend our last night there as we loved it so much.

its a must when visiting skiathos

“Traditional food accompanied by traditional music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

This was another visit which was inspired by Trip Advisor research before our holiday. The seating was a little precarious but the food and atmosphere were great. As the evening darkened the string of lights twinkled away making the setting even more romantic. We chose Greek salad,Stuffed tomatoes and Meat balls. All were wholesome and tasty. The service was friendly and efficient and were were given complimentary desserts at the end (described as semolina it was a cold set pudding sprinkled with cinnamon). The music definitely made the meal and enhanced the evening's experience. I would recommend to any visitor to Skiathos Town.
