Is there any restaurants in Greece that serves small portions??? Tzivaeri is a wonderful taberna located on the second floor with wonderful views of the port of Skala. We have learned now to order only 2 mezes and then mre if still hungry. The snails with rosemary must have been a kg of snails. I have never been served so... More

Very nice restaurant, located on a terrace first floor above another taverna. We booked the table we wanted, facing the street and the sea. We really enjoyed the food, the fish soup was outstanding and so was the grilled fish. My wife took a stuffed octopus which was very tender and tasty. Prices in the range of a greek taverna,...

We wandered along from our hotel (the excellent Skala) and saw this restaurant with the balcony looking out over the bay. We arrived fairly early in the evening and got a table at the front of the balcony so a great view up to the Chora and out to sea. Food was really good, very filling and freshly prepared. Drinks...

The restaurant has a nice location and a great view from the balcony, but it is the great food that put it on top ten. The food is excellent and even though its plentiful, you want to eat it all, and full you will be.

Restaurant practises Kouzina politiki, (greek kitchen style of cooking as it was practised, before the greek were expelled from Konstantinopolis, which is now Istanbul/Turkey). Amazing. This restaurant Is worth a trip to patmos. Don't get trapped by entering the restaurant on the ground floor. Tzivaeri is on the floor above.

We had the pork tenderloin, which was cooked to perfection, as was the chicken souvlaki. The tzadziki clearly is homemade as is the spicy cheese dip, both musts with any meal. The dolmades were out of this world and, thankfully, did not come out of a tin. The Bekri Meze has a delightful kick without being overly spicy. The meatballs... More

Great family run first floor restaurant. Great views and great food. Dish of the day was fabulous - eggplant in the oven with feta cheese and onions.
