It's a bit hidden above the port of Pera Gialos behind the hotels and the Police Station, but close enough to get there easily. Our host suggested to come here for a lunch and she was right. There were only local people sitting in the taverna and it usually is a good sign. The food was excellent, the service was... More

Food was OK but the staff weren't really paying attention even though the restaurant wasn't busy. I ordered Fix but was brought Mythos. I ordered chicken rigonato with oven potatoes but was brought chicken in mustard sauce with the worst chips ever. I should have sent it back but didn't bother. I had been looking forward to eating there as... More

This restaurant is located in a quiet spot just above the harbor and on the other side of the police station. We ate at around 15:00 and it was rather quiet with few people. It is very nice decorated but the tables are quite dense (if you go there when it's full, you might feel a bit crowded). The menu... More

this Place Is Great. If you Don't Stop Here for a meal While You're In Astypalaia You Are Missing OUT. THE Food IS Much Better Than Any Restaurant On The Island. Dimitris & His Wife Froso Really Know How To Cook And Manage A Restaurant. I am from The US And I Have Been To A Million restaurants but nothing... More

Another year on the island and the Maistrali remains one of the best places we have visited !! Good prices, perfect food and service! Prefer fresh fish and deliciously cooked food. Do not forget to taste the amazing lobster spaghetti!

Visited the place twice and had excellent Imam. Otherwise it was just basic good taverna food. Friendly atmosphere. The only negative side is its touristiko orientation.

Read about this place via lonely planet and it turned out to be a decent option in the port. Environment is friendly and warm, as are the staff, and the prices were reasonable. We found that the menu however was rather hit and miss as we loved the chick peas that were the days special, but suffered with the proteins... More

Three dinners over the course of ten days, all of them solidly good. The owners and staff are both very efficient and friendly. This place is popular with yachties as well as locals and visitors to the island. Salads are good, chickpeas are wonderful, so is goat whilst everything else is honest.

Delicious fresh seafood! I particularly enjoyed roasted shrimps and fried squid. The restaurant is beautifully located at the corner of the old harbour and is decorated with traditional items. Stuff was really polite and friendly which made the experience even more great!
