I visited this restaurant with friends the first day we arrived in Ios and I must say it was a pretty good choice considering most of the island's restaurant's are the tourist-y kind...expensive and without the best quality in offer. It wasn't a cheap find, but not too pricey either..it was so and so. Right at the start of Mylopotas... More

We ate here once and the reason we didn't go back was a total lack of atmosphere.The food was OK compared to other tavernas but we just wanted to eat and leave for somewhere with a bit of life, and we are in our 60's and don't want loud music or noisy places but it was like a morgue.

We have visited the restaurant on a weekday early evening. We ordered a "village" salad, common salad for the Greek islands which was really good, two starters which were nothing more to OK and two main courses, the one was a chicken risotto and seasoned pork fillet with fries. The main courses were pretty good. The waiting staff was polite... More

We were staying in a villa on the hill of Plaka-hadn't thought of going further up the hill until two days before departure. What a find when we happened across Elpis. The staff was very friendly, helped us with our pronunciations of the language and brought us food that was exceptional in flavor as well as quantity (Mojitos were great... More

This taverna has an excellent sea view from an elevated site.It is located on the approach to Mylopotas beach. The menu is typically Greek. It is inexpensive at around €30 for two people having a starter(to share) and two mains,large water and a bottle of ouzo. The moussaka was probably the best we have had for a long time. We... More

This is a family owned and operated restaurant combining the best elements of the taverna with the best elements of a lesurely social event in simple but elegant surroundings. We ate here on several occasions and found the variety, quality and presentation of dishes consistently excellent. The view out across the bay at night when dining gave real atmosphere and... More

The best restaurant on Mylopotas Beach! Traditional food served in a sea-breeze-maximising first floor level restaurant. You won't be disappointed.
