The taverna is in a lovely setting overlooking one end of the beach where you can sit and watch the world go by whilst eating some really good greek food. Highly recommend!

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.

The main courses were pretty good. The waiting staff was polite... More

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
