This is the restaurant of aghios nikolaos, a tiny beach accessible only via boat. This means that if you want to dine here, they will bring you back on their boat after dinner! The papalagi octopus is mouth watering, the fish of the day, grilled and served with lemon, is incredible. Compared to other restaurants is somewhat pricey. Ok, it's... More

Lunch was tasty, well-cooked and furthermore there's an amazing variety of choices . I recommend skordalia(zucchini cream with garlic) and octopus! The restaurant is located over agios nicolaos beach; the view is breathtaking and it's worth it .

We walked from Agali, but that is not reccomneded if you are scared of heights or have trouble with narrow paths. Great food (try the Mahi Mahi and the Octopus salad), but somewhat expensive. I guess you pay for the view and getting the groceries up there... Call and reserve a table, to sit close to the fantastic view.

Fresh tasty seafood... quite busy when we went and took about 20 mins to get our order taken but after a swim you don't really mind relaxing and waiting. Food was super fresh and simply flavoured. Must visit. Breathtaking views.

Papalagi is by far the best food experience you can get in Folegandros! It combines a fantastic beach (where you can swim even when it is really windy on the rest of the island), an unbeatable view (make sure you stay past sunset to understand why) and a very tasty cuisine (focusing on fresh fish which in combination with the...

Ridiculously small portions of seafood and salads. Too expensive for its quality and quantity. The first amount of money I regretted spending in Folegandros.

This is the best food experience in Folegandros. You can stay at the nice beach and watch today's catch being transported by wire up to the restaurant just before lunch. This is the forth year on the beautiful island. Tuna is great . They cook everything themselves with success. The restaurant is busy so expect no fast service. If you... More

This restaurant has a stunning location. We came to it after a cliff-side walk, and it was a very welcome sight. It's busy, and we were lucky to get a table. The food was a really high standard - we enjoyed the grilled squid.
