Catch a water taxi to this spot from the Port at Ydra - €10 for for us. Takes about 10mins Just a fantastic setting. Get there to experience the sunset. It is truly a magical setting. And the food? That was great as well. Lots of fantastic variety. And really tasty. Complimented w a great Greek Cab Sav as well.... More

If you pass all the hustle and bustle of hydra and walk 10 minutes along the beautiful coast you will find this restaurant. Apart from the large portions, happy vibe and good service, the view is just great. It is placed above a small port for fishing boats, opposite an old mansion which has been converted to accommodate the filming... More

Delicious food and family size servings. Fishermans salad with fresh sea food and black caviar was out of this world and very healthy. One salad was enough for two as well as the baked wish we ordered, which we selected ourselves and was cooked just right. The view was gorgeous and the atmosphere in the restaurant was very serene.

It's a good 20 minute walk from the centre of Hydra to get here but scenic all the way. If you are coming at night bring a small torch as stretches of the path are lumpy and street lighting is poor. Food was not exceptional but its best feature is its elevated location overlooking a small secluded harbour. It is... More

Dimitrious, the owner of the Kodylenia's, runs a fantastic family run restaurant overlooking the water in Kameni harbour. The food, the staff, the views, the ambiance, the friendliness of Dimitrious were all factors that led me to eat there every night. I was recommended to eat there by friends, and I have subsequently sent people to eat there. Everyone loved... More

We came to Hydra with a school trip, so we didn't have any information about good restaurants in the island. Luckily, we ended up in Kodylenia's! As it wasn't summer yet we were the only ones there, and the owner treated as good as he could. At first he was confused because he doesn't speak English, but he ended up... More

This treasure on Hydra in Kamini at the old port is beyond words! Beautiful setting and excellent food! When you arrive on a boat in Hydra, walk to your right and around the point about 10 minutes and follow the signs up to Kodylenia's. No regrets and I cannot wait to travel back there for lunch or dinner!

Rick Steves had recommended this as a high end dinner spot, but we arrived here at noon, the first customers in the place. We want to get a light meal as we had a large breakfast. We tried some zucchini balls which were fine, and the waiter recommended eggplant stuffed with tomato chopped, with herbs, and topped with cheese, which... More

During my morning run I passed this place; made a note to come back for at least a drink. Later, as we walked through an afternoon downpour along the coastal path, I kept assuring my wife that the walk and the wet would be worth it. It was. The place must be magical in good weather; in a driving rain,... More
