We have been here for lunch and dinner. Perfectly located right on the beach, serving excellent quality seafood. The portion sizes are generous - good value for money. It’s so nice and easy to move from beach to restaurant you could easily spend all day...& night there. Definitely worth a visit.More

We actually had a late lunch here last September 2019, after a chilled beach day. Everything was absolutely perfect-the food, just delicious, the service, so friendly ,the ambience amazing, & those sea views-dreamy. Believe me, I'm a discerning,seasoned traveller & normally super critical-this place was...faultless.We & are hoping to fly out again next week, 20th September 2020 for a late summer sojourn in Ios,as many people from Europe probably are after a miserable year of Covid uncertainty .I need a break & I need the spirit of Ios.I really hope this gorgeous gem of a find stays open until at least the end of September,as it will be my first restaurant visit on Ios-simply delightful!..Thank you Koumpara for such a great experience! xxxMore

The place is really nice, the service to us was very very nice even if we didn't book a table we were sat by the beach, they welcomed us with water, bread and some spreadable, at the end we had a complimentary shot of Ouzo...and a desert... so why one "star" only? Well, to make the story short we ordered (later I got why the waiter insisted) 1 fish on the grill, 1 plate of steamed veg and one beer. I told you they really treat you good but the bill arrived on a post-it... yes a yellow squared piece of paper saying 85... no idea of the price neither the weight for that fish (but sure not more than 2kg), no idea if they charged us with the deserts and breads or starters.(I don't think so anyway).. nothing... no receipt either... In conclusion, nice place, we had good food but make sure they don't rip you off just because you are a tourist and they live on their summer season. Get the fresh seafood (they are famous for) but make sure they weight it in front of you and ask how much is for Kg.More

You must go here! This place is just amazing. We ate dinner here on our first night, it was great value for money and the service was very friendly. The location is beautiful right on the beach. The decor is lovely too and very romantic....The split pea starter was a taste sensation! We enjoyed it so much we came back for lunch and we were only on the island for three days. The complimentary ouzo at the end of the meal was very nice too! We will be back for sure in our next visit.More

The minute you arrive you you feel the love and care that was given in this place!!! Wide smiles and warm welcome, makes you feel immediately a friend not only a guest! The food comes to complete the experience, fresh salads, fresh fish, octopus, shrimps/mussels...and special Greek dishes cooked in perfection!! Don't miss it!!More

Great for friends, families and couples who are looking for a scenic, laid back yet romantic place. Unobstructed view of the sea, no road or traffic in front. They also have some umbrellas and serve snacks and drinks to the beach.

I love this Taverna. One of the best on Ios. The location is perfect as you get a slight breeze and the best views. The food here is incredible...everything there I recommend but favourites are, greek salad, shrimp/mussels, fish of the day, the chips& meatballs,...the octopus... I never visit Ios without a trip to this taverna. It's amazing!More

We just returned from our trip to Ios and this establishment stands out. Amazing service, wonderful food. The location is fantastic. Right on the beach with the sound of the waves crashing while you are dining. There's a large outdoor, covered dining area that is...ideal for anyone who loves the wonderful climate of Ios. Highly recommended.More

Visited this restaurant on a recent trip to Ios. Has a fantastic choice of the freshest fish you will find on Ios. Stunning location to watch the sun set. Very friendly staff. Very reasonable. Well worth a visit if you are on Ios. Extremely busy...in the high season so advisable to prebook a table.More

We stopped on our quad bike to see the beach and it was so nice we stayed for drinks and octopus. Sort of place which is what we all look for on holiday. Friendly good food and a view to die for. I'd go back...anytime.More
