“Back after 17 years and its still there”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We went into Skiathos town for an evening and revisited this restaurant after 17 years. We used this place a lot back then when staying in the town as it was the only place in Skiathos town that offered a proper rustic Greek taverna experience. All the others were harbouside ripoffs serving poor quality food.

Has it changed, well a little but not vastly. Still worth seeking this one out (just up the road behind the school) if you want a nice outside setting in a garden with good Greek food. The Kleftico was lovely, loads of lamb and very very tender. Stiffado was good and tasty as well.

It has got a little more 'organised' than before which means it has lost a little of its charm but its still a lovely restaurant doing good Greek food. Little more expensive than we would have hoped as well but that's progress for you.

“Greek food at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Lovely Greek cuisine served at its best a warm welcome always and lovely atmosphere. Been here on every visit to Skiathos and have never been disappointed especially like the lynhari salad as recommended by Dimitri and Ann and of course the traditional kleftiko, stifado and the best moussaka delicious, a great family run restaurant well worth a visit.

We went twice to this restaurant, and we would have gone more, but there are so many to visit.
Try the Lamb Kleftico " YUM YUM ?
