“Still one of the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Have been going to Skiathos for the last 8 years and this is still in the top 2 in my opinion! Our other favourite isn't on trip advisor so luckily will remain our secret favourite!!

Can't believe Mesogia is not higher in the rankings- guess that's no bad thing as less people know about this little gem!

We had awesome meatballs, moussaka, beef yiovetsi and soutzoukakia this time and was as lovely as ever. Greek food at its best..

Owner and his wife are fantastic always nice to see that they're still there and this lovely little taverna in the back streets still survives despite its hidden away location!

We look forward to many more return visits in future years!

“Διακοπές”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

Pandeleis, the owner is a mine of information on Skiathos and it's history. We always visit Messogia on our twice yearly holiday in Skiathos and enjoy their excellent food.
Looking forward to next visit in September.

“Love Mesogia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

My husband and I visited this taverna twice last year and made it our first stop this year. We weren't disappointed.
We arrived quite late due (around 11pm) but this was not a problem for the lovely owners; they made us feel very welcome and relaxed.
We had a meze of dishes... a Greek salad, tzatziki, shrimp saganaki and calamari... all washed down with house white. It's true that the food is quite basic but it's good cooked, rustic Greek food served in a lovely side street with a wonderful ambience.
The place was still busy at that time and we were just left to our own devises to enjoy our food at a steady pace so it was a lovely first night on the island.
All for great value with a great ambience.
We love Mesogia and we will return next time we're in Skiathos.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

Well, we are a Greek couple visiting the island for the second time, we were recommended to dine here cause the food is great and it is a traditional Greek restaurant and that we would enjoy it. I have to admit that the only thing I liked was the Greek salad and the atmosphere.. all the others was a huge disappointment. The food, completely tasteless, that is what we call in Greece a restaurant meant for tourists. Why? Because they have never tasted those Greek plates before and do not know if they are good or not...for them it is something new something exotic. For us it is something ordinary.. I didn't expect those plates to be so average.. But the worst thing about this restaurant was in the end when I asked for the check, and there was no ckeck!! Only a paper indicating the amount we had to pay.. when I asked for the receipt the waiter told me that their machine has been broken, out of the blue, and that we should wait for the technician to fix it..my girlfriend insisted on waiting but it was obvious that there was not going to be any technician..lol for that.. after half hour waiting we left...totally disappointed not only for the quality of food but also for this behavior..never visit this restaurant again..
