Arrived late Friday evening ,had not booked and they were busy,however they said table would be available in about half an hour or so. We sat in pleasant bar area, don't know what it is,but sometimes you can instantly get a good feeling for a place by attitude of staff, this is such a place. As promised table was ready... More

We enjoyed our delicious and well prepared food in this beautiful restaurant. It's worth to visit and prices are not high. It just feels so local when you sit there and you smell the sea near to those local houses with olive and pomegranate trees. The roosters in a backyard of a local houses makes the atmosphere more enjoyable.

The restaurant has lovely, quirky decor with the most friendly staff and owner. We loved the food and really thought it stood out among other places in the area, even telling you on the menu which dishes are frozen (marked with 'fr'). Prices quite reasonable, too. The only thing is that during our dinner there was the occasional smell of... More

Excellent restaurant with superb food delivered by friendly staff. Visited here whilst staying at the shocking awful Kanapitsa Mare Hotel, which should be avoided! I throroughly recommend a visit if passing.

Lovely atmosphere and great friendly staff. Seated straight away and given complimentary bread and olives. Food didn't take too long to arrive and was very fresh and tasty. Great selection of sea food, salads etc. After our food arrived some wasps were flying around our food, probably due to the dining area being partially outside. However the staff sorted it... More

Came across this restaurant whilst out walking. It's very close to where we are staying (Hermes apartments) - just behind bus stop 12. It looks very unassuming from the front. Don't let this fool you though. We've only been in Skiathos for a few days but we already know we'll be back here. You get a very warm, genuine, family... More

We ate in 10 or so restaurants during our stay in Skiathos and we liked this one the best. Lovely spacious outdoor eating area where use of lighting, artefacts and the greenery around the restaurant create a really nice ambience (it doesn't look much from the road, which almost put us off). Nice family run taverna with a relatively small... More
