We had a lovely lunch here, we got a variety of dishes - fried calamari (a bit chewy but tasty), seafood risotto which was delicious, mixed grill plate (a very big portion) and lamb kleftiko (traditional greece dish). We even got some bread & butter...for a start and to finish off we got some desserts and greek raki (greek alcoholic drink) to finish off - these things were given to us for free. The view on the sea adds a nice touch and the staff are very friendly and funny. Would recommend!More

I had the chicken Fiorentina which was so tasty and fresh. Be aware the childrens meals are large. Two toddlers/4yr olds could share one. Kids food was tasty too! Service was fantastic, very freindly. Setting was beautiful overlooking the water.

This restaurant is a victim of the hype on Tripadvisor and a very slick website! After reading the reviews and perusing the website, I was all fired up for a visit; I actually went as far as reserving a table as I did not want...to miss out (my last evening on the Island). After walking past many other establishments, I arrived at the restaurant. First impressions were not great as there is a very busy walkway separating the main restaurant from the outdoor sitting; you have to dodge people before being able to be seated and it just feels that there is no border between pedestrians and the sitting area. My table was not cleaned before I was seated but gave them the benefit of the doubt. My waiter was good with an easy going manner and was friendly (I think he was the highlight of the visit). I ordered garlic prawns with pita bread but when served, it was 5 miserable-looking prawns in a skillet with dry bread! My main was also disappointing with the fish very chewy and the mushrooms burnt. Left very disappointed but maybe I was expecting too much…..?More

We've been coming to Veranda for over 9 years as it's part of the Glaros hotel where we always stay. The service, food and staff are truly amazing. We always enjoy eating here or having a drink in the evening with amazing sunset views 👌🏼...10/10More
