“Favourite Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

In 15 yrs of visiting Skiathos Polycratis has never let us down - delicious. On most recent visit my husband asked about a meal that was no longer on the menu, it was recreated for him as was every bit as good as the first time we tried it

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

I had some superb food during my two weeks in Skiathos but the lamb kleftiko I had in here was the best main dish I had, it was absolutely delicious!!! The lady whose in the photo is very friendly and attentive, even shaking your hands as you leave which I thought was a very nice touch. Very reasonably priced as well and I would highly recommend paying a visit.

“You must visit this one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

This was the first restaurant we found on our Tripadvisor list when visiting Skiathos. Set at the end of Papadiamanti street the tables are in a semi secluded garden setting but you can still watch some of the world go by. On our first visit we were not hassled at the entrance to "come on in" but once over the threshold we we given a typical warm Greek welcome by a lovely female waitress who genuinely enjoyed her work. Food quality here and value for money was absolutely spot on as we discovered when visiting other places during the week. If you visit you really must try the Lamb Gastra in a clay pot, it is quite simply the best tasting lamb based Greek meal I have ever had over many years. The service was faultless and totally genuine. How do they remember your faces when you return a week later? but they did! There are many good restaurants in the town and this was in our top 3. Highly recommend you visit.

Went to this restaurant twice on our recent holiday, really friendly, helpful staff, great Kleftiko and stifado, surprisingly good house wine and a free Ouzo all made it a great part of our holiday, well recommended

“Friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Our first night's meal was here - and enjoyed. The lady waitress (all the others were male) was particularly nice.
