We had our accomodation in Vlichos while in Hydra and tried various restaurants in the area and in the port, but this one made us want to try everything on the menu! We ended up coming back every day,either for lunch or dinner. The restaurant is just at Vlichos beach, definetly worth coming here even if you stay in the port, just take the beautiful coastline path. From the menu our favorites were: the zucchini and tomato croquettes, tarama, cheese donuts, ground salat and the fresh fish!!! Apart from the quality food, at very good prices for Hydra, big portions on each plate, the waiter-Evaghelio- made us feel at home. So joyfull, helpful and fun! He become our friend. Of course, you will always get something on the house: be it desert, a raki or a coffee. Eat here when you come to Hydra!

There are 2 restaurants at Vlychos Beach that were open during our stay. But we tried only one, Enalion, and kept returning to it--some days even when we weren't going to the beach as each meal was better than the previous, as we got to know the menu and determined favorites. The menu had a strong Cretan influence: fennel leaf pie, fried zucchini strips, Cretan salad, whole grilled calamari, each a treat. All in all we went back for lunch 6 times and were never disappointed. We cannot go without mentioning that of all the wonderful servers we experienced in our month on Hydra, Evangelos was worth the visit just for his charm, sense of humor and command of English. And on many occasions, lunch was initiated by Evangelos providing us a free shot of Ouzo to toast our return. Go to Vylchos for the beach, but don't miss out on a great dining experience by visiting Enalion.

Our favorite restaurant on the island. We spent 6 days on the island of Hydra, and for us a perfect day meant Vlichos beach and lunch at Enalion (ate here 4x in 6 days). Five stars for the menu (variety, choices, yumminess), price (normal to lower end given Hydra prices), setting (open-air, beach view, airy, no foot traffic), and service (lovely staff and particular shout out to the energetic and ever-welcoming and engaging Evangelos). We particularly enjoyed the red mullet, taramasalata (best ever), seafood spring rolls, fried baby squid, grilled sardines, and the grilled squid.

I have been visiting the Enalion every other year for about ten years. If you are on the island of Hydra, you should definitely make a trip to Vlychos and pay a visit to Enalion. Vlychos is a small village about 30 minutes walk or 7 minutes by boat from Hydra port. The beach offers the best swimming in and sunbathing on the island. Up the hill from the beach is the Enalion... an open-air greek taverna that is welcoming, friendly, laid-back and entirely unpretentious. But don't let the relaxed atmosphere fool you: this is one of the best restaurants on the island. The menu of Greek classics is the best of what mediterranean cuisine offers: simple, flavorful, fresh, light, and always satisfying. One of the nicest features of Enalion is that because it is so close to the beach, they will serve your meal directly to your beach chair. As I wrap up this review, I would like to give a special mention to the owner, Yanni (who is usually there and making guests feel at home), and long-time waiter Evangelos, whose charm and friendliness is one of the reasons we keep coming back. So, if you are spending time on Hydra, do yourself a favor: head to Vlychos for a bit of beach time, and stop by the Enalion. You'll be glad you did.

Wonderful experience!!!! The location is beautiful, all the servers are excellent! Evangelos is warm and joyful - every time I came in he greeted me personally and made sure my meal was perfect. I have been many times and it has always been excellent!!!!

Ordered appetizers and a drink before getting on a boat back to the port. Had to ask the waiter twice for my drink. My drink was warm and the appetizers were cold. He rang us up then chased us down before we got on the boat saying he made a mistake and we owed more for the check. Gave him cash without going back to the restaurant to confirm pricing because we did not want to miss the boat. Probably overpaid but we had no time. He was rude on top of everything. There are better places to eat on Hydra

Ate breakfast, lunch, siesta and dinner here with a study abroad group. The staff was always beyond kind and loving. Food was incredible and well-worth the price. Atmosphere is beautiful and serene, and you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Highly recommended!

Great spot, wonderful food and service, perfect for a day in the beach… excellent kitchen, tarama, red mullets perfectly cooked, delicious mussels. The kind boss in charge at the restaurant and Ronaldo at the sun beds will take good care of you.

Hello Something on tripadvisor is not working. There have been no reviews of this beautiful restaurant since August 2019 but it’s been open 2020 , I’m sitting here right now enjoying the beautifully prepared food they serve. This is the best restaurant on this island of Hydra , I’ve tested all the top rated restaurants on Hydra so I know for sure ENALION is the best. It’s accessed either by getting the boat from hydra port to “Vlychos beach” starting at 10am each day just look for the billboard on the boat. You could walk it along the coast but it’s hot and a good 30 minute walk so I’d say go by boat it’s a lovely trip . They do salads to die for here at ENALION and they have traditional Greek dishes too , if you want fish they have beautifully prepared fresh fish too. The wine is superb too. The Vlychos beach looks a bit dark and uninviting as you pass it ,I thought so too when I regularly passed bye to go to the four seasons but believe me give Vlychos beach a try the sea is pristine wonderfully clean and clear it’s a bay so children supervised by adults of course can safely use it. ENALION will serve you food and drinks at your subbed too if you want. ENALION has a little bamboo roof covered area with tables or right next to it you can sit at tables beneath the trees. This place s heaven if you want a safe clean haven with wonderful fresh clean food prepared with attention to detail. I’ve been here a lot during the four holidays I have had on Hydra over the last four or five years. The last boat from Vlychos beach back to hydra port is 8pm it’s a 10 min trip. So this review is a daytime reviewers opinion

Lovely taverna by the beach with very friendly staff. We ate lunch here twice during our 2 week holiday. Delicious traditional local Greek food and they also make the best Strawberry daiquiris - we stopped by a few times for those! They also serve food & drinks on the beach if you rent sunbeds from them on one side of the beach.

We stopped here for a spontaneous lunch snack. We were served quickly and the food was decent but nothing special. The frappe was a bit too thick for my liking. The setting overlooking the beach is nice.
