This was our least favourite meal during our stay in Skiathos - we have eaten here previously and that was slightly better. We found it a bit pricier than others in the area but portions were small and my chicken was quite dry and overcooked. We always get a greek salad as part of our starters but even that was... More

Run by George & Rosemary, you will always be created with a smile. The Taverba does look to lack a bit of atmosphere but the food and service along with the prices are good.

We went to Vareli's on the bus from Koukounaries. We have been here every time we go to Skiathos (we usually stay in Troulos but were unable to find accommodation so stayed in Koukounaries) you are made to feel very welcome by Rosemary and George, and are treated more like family than paying customers. The food is excellent, every time.... More

Celebrated birthday with extended family (12 of us). George and Rosemary did us proud ,with balloons,a cake , and even the old Greek custom of plate smashing (had to tell 2 year old grandson it was only allowed on Grandad's birthday !). Food , service all up to the standard we have come to expect and enjoy .

Food was decent enough, just thought the place lacked atmosphere. Staff spent most of time chatting with customers who were return visitors, which is fair enough but really should have paid a bit more attention to people like us who were 'first timers', as nothing about the service inspired us about going back.

We ate here twice during our stay but couldnt really decide on the quality of the meals! The plain grills seemed to be ok but anything with a sauce didnt seem quite right. Instead of chips with the main meals they served flat fried potatos which were nice and everything was hot. Worth a visit but could depend on what... More
