Great location. Beautiful place. Food is something for everyone. I enjoyed eating close to the sea looking fishermans boats coming and going.

A must for visitors to Molyvos. The food is excellent and the choice is impressive. The owner makes you welcome and provides some interesting information about village life. It can get busy so book a table or eat early.

At The Captain’s table I’ve eaten the best greek food, that I’ve tasted in my life! Everything I ordered was excellent and freshly prepared in the kitchen. For vegetarians and fishlovers this is heaven. I love salads and there is a lot to choose from, and they each have their own lovely taste. My personal favorite was the courgette salad... More

The food, the place, the hospitality, everyting was OK here. Of course the weather made it possible to dine on the qaui of the harbor with view on the greek little fisherboats (no fakes !) and the drying octopus legs.

Stopped here for some tasty tapas . Our selection included octopus salad , mince pies , sardines and seafood pasta . All delicious . It turned out that the owners daughter was also the bar maid at our hotel in Petra ! We were given some sweet red wine and some lovely peanut brittle .

The location is lovely, day or night. The food is good especially the roasted potatoes; but the portions are very small so make sure you order a few things otherwise you will be hungry. Prices are quite reasonable.

Dear Ykhabal, Glad you liked our food. Yes our portions are small as are the prices. We serve traditional greek mezedes. Sorry you thought our place was not good enough as you only gave us only 3 stars but your words that you wrote said something different. Do please come and enjoy our restaurant again Melinda More

We had a couple of Greek dishes at dinner, but none of the food was particularly good. It was OK, plain and eatable. Service was not the best considering we were the only persons dining there.

Greetings from Lesvos, Dear Mikael we are experiencing Bayram the Turkish holiday and all our restaurants in Molyvos have been very full for over a week and more. We have been very happy to be so busy so we find it strange that you came and ate here and we were empty when we are serving so many per night.... More

As regular visitors to Lesvos, we have long wanted to visit The Captain's Table, but, I have been reluctant to drive, in the evening, from nearby Petra. This time, we used the Land Train from Petra. The 'Captain's Table' is located on the quayside on the inner harbour. The lighting, and the nearby restaurants, create a pleasant atmosphere. I had... More

This restaurant can be found in the harbour of Molyvos and you sit at the docks. On the menu you can find several small dishes local from Lesvos. When choosing you dishes, ask for recommendations. The tzaziki and the marinated chicken are great. Also if you like fish there is the catch of the day, which is not on the... More
