Came here by chance, and were enthustiastic about the view, we decided to sit and have a cocktail each. First of all I recommend to have a drink here only in order to properly enjoy the view. If you are looking for good cocktails, don...t. We ordered a margarita which was waterish and tasteless and a fresh fruit daiquiri which was in my opinion very good, so go for that one. It s a cash only place and it s pricey. Each cocktail costs 9€ (it s the kind of price we have in Belgium), but ok, I know greeks are not huge drinkers and all drinks taken in any bar costs quite a lot. Regarding the staff, well, it s a family business, but we felt as we were actually bothering them with our presence, as this is already our 7th year in a row we spend our holidays in greece, it is not something ever happened to us.More

The view and atmosphere are amazing. Unfortunately getting up there in the morning or afternoon is a torture. There is little to no shade on the way up there and the heat on the terrace is too high. I guess later afternoon or early evening...is the best time to go there, before the sunset. The juices are ok, quite watery though. The prices are too high, be careful what you're ordering, check the pricelist first. I felt sorry for the old couple working there, they were struggling to cope with the heat... All in all, a great place to relax if you are alone or a couple before your dinner.More

Came to this small cafe bar after a very hot walk uphill in the old town (trying to find the castle ruins!) We asked for water but were told we could not be served just water, at €1. We then ordered a fresh orange juice,...which was lovely but were shocked at the price of €7 for one juice and one bottle of water! Yes, the view was wonderful but left with an unpleasant impression at the rip-off price!More

We stumbled upon this little gem in the midst of the midday sun while trekking around the old port. With two sun weary children in tow we thought we’d stop for a quick drink here. The children both had the banoffee milkshake and we had...the fresh lemonade and they were all delicious (especially the milkshakes! ) I would recommend this place especially if it is quiet as it was lovely just sat looking at the fabulous view. It is a tad more expensive than other places (€22 for the 4 drinks) but the drinks are fresh and the view is to die for!More

We had coffee at this place, great view however no freddo coffees (the owner told us straight away) and the frappe we had was full of water and milk and the least coffee possible, we couldn't drink it! The Greek coffee was OK but very...expensive, the most expensive Greek coffee and Frappe we ever had in Greece (3.5 euros each).More

Delightful place outside the crowd with a peaceful point of view, well-prepared cocktails and welcoming owners. A time outside the time where olders come to seat on the bench.

As a location this place is hard to beat in Skopelos town: a terrace under two mulberry trees overlooking the sea. There are several potted plants around and one sits in folding chairs. When we arrived, there was first classical music in the background, which...later changed to international pop. A pretty old looking man took our orders. My wife's fresh orange juice was okay, my glass of white wine not of the best quality and not really cold. When asking to pay (no regular bill, just a round amount of 10 €) the man in charge saw my German guidebook on the Northern Sporades and then showed me a picture inside of his terrace without the place's name being mentioned.More

We visited here for a light lunch after a strenuous walk to the top of Skopelos Town. The views over the town and sea are wonderful and the setting is magical. It's a small courtyard with tables and chairs set out under trees. We had...a couple of Mythos beers (a bowl of nuts came with this) and ordered some sparkling water (Sauroti which came in a tin - quite pricey but a good flavour). We then shared a Greek salad which came with rusks rather than bread and contained herbs from the owners' garden including some delicious capers. It wasn't overly big but was a bit different, in a good way, from the usual Greek salad. Classical music was playing quietly. We didn't have anything else but there were several interesting-sounding fresh juices on the small menu. Nice loos are downstairs from the small inside area. Definitely worth going if you make it up the hills.More

Went here twice. Enjoyed a glass of wine as the sun set the first time, then a revitalising smoothie on a sunny morning. The place is charming and off the beaten tourist track due to the stairs to get here but it’s relaxing and peaceful...and definitely worth a visitMore

This is one of those places where you feel like in a dream. Quiet, poetic terrace overlooking the sea,with a stunning view, incredible cocktails and fresh fruit smoothies. A very kind and sweet owner. Out of the crowd, non touristy spot perfect for an aperitivo...before the sunset.More
