“Definitely worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

We both loved this restaurant, the staff were really friendly and attentive and the food was gorgeous! We emailed and booked ahead and it was pretty busy when we visited. The starters were quite large so when it came to our mains we were quite full, the food was really well cooked and authentic. We sat in the courtyard which was just beautiful. I would go back again in a heartbeat!

Good food
Reasonable prices
Wonderful yard
They offered us a little bit of every dessert at the end of the meal. The chocolate one is amazing!

“Not brilliant ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Like other reviews have said, beautiful setting in a pretty courtyard, very tranquil however not enough staff which resulted in bad service and mediocre food. My daughter and I shared lots of appetisers which all seemed very "creamy" and resulted in us not eating much and feeling a bit sickly. Hubby had the sea bream which he said was good although the veg and potatoes were undercooked and cold. Son had a chicken breast, again chicken ok, veg etc hard and cold. Felt like we were mithering when we asked for our drinks order when only 3 out of 4 finally arrived and when they brought the 4th drink it was wrong. We really looked forward to eating here but felt the staffing was all wrong and therefore we suffered. Shame.

Dear Madam,
Thank you very much for taking the time to post your detailed review in TA.

We were very sad to read that you didn't have an enjoyable experience with us.
First of all I have to apologize to you for the mistake we did with your order for drinks and for the fact that the vegetables were not very warm.

Related to your review about not enough staff, you had probably mentioned to your visit, that the restaurant was full and was more people waiting for a table. Our effort is to offer to our guest the best possible service and try to satisfy all of them even though some times this is not enough. Our staff is well trained and high quality persons that they are trying their best to satisfy our guests.

About your appetizers that you had share and you had order, ( tzatziki, fresh goat cheese and broushette) they were all creamy as you have already mention because is the type of the appetizers you had order.

We are trying to cook our vegetables al- dente, to preserve vegetables' nutrients, bring out their color and enhance their flavor, crisp inside and tender outside. I understand that is possible that not everyone likes them cooked like that. And anyway has nothing to do with your point that they were cold. I am apologizing for that and for the fact that we didn’t have the possibility to change that while you had your dinner.

Thank you very much,
With warm regards
Panos Stamoulis

“Lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Went there om our first night in Skiathos. Friendly service in a unique decorated restaurant. I had a chicken-pot in a creamy lemon-sauce which was absolutely fantastic. Good wine and will absolutely return.
