Got pulled in by Yourges personality and I wasn’t disappointed. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was cooked perfectly... I had the special, chicken souvlaki. The chicken was moist, the vegetables cooked al dente and the portion size was impressive.

I had to laugh when I read other reviewers saying that the owner treated them like long lost cousins at this place tucked away in the old town. We arrived fairly early on our first night in Ios, going by our hotel host's recommendation. It...More

As I remember it, there were lots of vegetarian options available. I certainly had peppers and tomatoes stuffed with rice and herbs, which were delicious.
