Eaten here a couple of times recently and both times the food has been excellent. The menu is not overly large but you should be able to find something. Service can be slow at times as they seem to have limited staff

Such a shame to have a poor meal here as the staff were nice and friendly and the decor was new and modern. Maybe best for drinks but not food.

Hi there, we are exactly 3,235.3km to Skiathos town. Or so google tells me. I've never been, but I bet Greece is lovely this time of year.
