“Atmosphere and everything else”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Great little place tucked somewhere behind the old harbour. Live music in an open elevated corner plot. Waiting staff immaculate. Food superb, go for the fresh fish or kleftico. Went here on last night wanting an evening to remember and we were not disappointed. Free wine apperativ was a nice touch.

“Lovely authentic Greek food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We (mom, dad and 2 grown up children) loved this place so much we visited 4 times during our holiday and we thoroughly enjoyed every meal. Both children thought the moussaka was the best they had ever eaten! Every dish was delicious and when we complimented them on the home made dips for the bread we were given extra for free. On 2 other visits we were given free desserts one night and a complimentary drink of possibly ouzo on another. The staff here are so attentive and friendly even remembering our drinks order from previous visits. The live Greek music adds to the lovely atmosphere. Excellent value for money given the quality of the food. Will be our first restaurant visit on our return to Skiathos in the future.

“Excellent back street taverna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We had spotted this taverna a few nights earlier as we explored the maze of streets at the back of the old port. service and quality were excellent. My wife is vegetarian but was well catered for.Complimentary half carafe of wine whilst we studied menu.
Overall ambiance was excellent....visiting cats were amusing.

“Good Find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Found this by chance looking for one of the higher ranked restaurants on TA. Liked the live Greek music and the atmosphere and decided to give it a go. Pleasantly surprised. There was a special fish platter dish for 2 people but as I don't like fish when we asked if it could be done for one they were more than happy to oblige. I had the beef in a clay pot. Both meals were lovely and very filling. Judging from our meals and the food on other tables I would have said this was more like authentic Greek food than some of the meals served in other tavernas. Good service and all round good experience.
