“Old style Greek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

From the moment you enter the restaurant it's like Greece was years ago. The enthusiasm of the staff is fantastic. The setting, food and surroundings are great. All four of us really enjoyed our meals and the Kleftiko was superb, I would recommend it to anyone. If you remember old style Greek hospitality or want to sample it for the first time then this place is not to be missed

“Local restaurant with good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

We always visit this local taverna on our visits to Skiathos. The food is Greek, usual with a special on the front page, and is nicely cooked. The service is friendly and welcoming with a free ouzo and pudding. It is very good value but unlike some of the more touristy places on the island it is good authentic food with no pretensions. Good value. Safer to book especially in busy periods.

“Super place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

We visited on the recommendation of others in our hotel and were not disappointed. In fact we returned again on our last night. The food is great value and the service excellent. Give it a go, you won't regret it.

“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

I was really looking forward to eating here after reading all the reviews. The staff were very pleasant but the food was just average - nothing better than anywhere else we tried.

“Superb food and hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

We visited Taverna Lyhnari twice in the opening week of this year's summer season, mainly on the back of reviews from tripadvisor. I'm glad to say we weren't disappointed and it served up the best food and hospitality we encountered in Skiathos. The owner / chef is genuinely passionate about food and will let you know how he cooks all his fabulous dishes. We visited with our 2 year old who was always made a fuss of (he was given a lovely keyring and an ice cream with a sparkler in the top) and he also loved the food. All in all, great authentic food, hospitality and cheap prices, will hopefully visit this beautiful island again.
