Had to eat early one evening and wandered into Marmita - bit worried as we were the only people there - no problem - we had great service and lovely food.

“Top notch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Despite having to queue for a table and waiting 30 minutes to be served our starter (as is the Greek way, so we didn't mind at all!), the Marmita did not fail to deliver. A gorgeous setting in a typical Greek way, big smiles from all the staff, fantastic wine and amazing food. We had the cuttlefish, pork, and chicken and each dish did not disappoint! They even gave us a free chocolate cake dessert which was simply to DIE for! Obviously this place was a little more expensive than the standard taverna, but it was worth every penny!

“Best food we've had in Skiathos. One to watch!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

We'd heard great things about this place and were not disappointed. Wonderful fresh food, great flavours and amazing service. Mussels the best we have tasted anywhere in the world for a long time and that's saying something. Everything looks and tastes really fresh, i had sea bass with some freshly picked samphire, husband had a sea bream that was fresh that day. Prices are very reasonable and they have a fantastic wine list. The owner, Panos really know his stuff, he is passionate about food and very knowledgeable about wine. Very generous with drinks and a pudding on the house. We loved it so much we went back the next night, his last night before closing for the season. Unlike other places you could see the standard of food and service was clearly as good as at the beginning of the season. Ok they didn't have some things on the menu but they were honest and we knew what they did sell was fresh. Lamb chops delicious and a veal stew was tasty. Again we were offered a bottle of (very good) wine on the house to apologise for them not having any fresh fish left. This is one to watch and i reckon it will be no.1 in Skiathos next year. Oh i forgot to add, the garden setting is beautiful, all overhanging trees and twinkling fairy lights. Amazing.

“Great restaurant for an enjoyable evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We were recommended Marmita by one of the waiters at the Skiathos Princess and we are glad he did. Relatively new to Skiathos Town, Marmita has a lot to offer. The menu has traditional Greek food to suit everyone's tastes - fresh fish daily, a great selection of specials and the quality of the produce was excellent. The Greek wine was surprisingly good too! We sat in the courtyard out the back which had a great ambience.
A busy restaurant but the service was still very good, highly recommended.
