This restaurant is one we have visited on a number of occasions with friends and it is one of the best in the area. Located on the quayside it has glorious views of the bay and loads of seating. They offer a range of meal choices from what they are cooking - usually lamb, pork, chicken and seafood - all... More

We came to the fishing village of Mochlos for a lunch. We had no problems with parking the car in the village. Out of maybe be five tavernas located at the seafront facing Ag.Nikolaos islet we chose Ta Kochilia and were quiet satisfied with our choice: decent well cooked Greek food, good service and nice setting. Good value for money.

This is a truly delightful Taverna...it is also fair to say it is one of a number of lovely Taverna's in this delightful fishing village. You can simply relax and have a highly unstructured but excellent (fish) meal as the sun drenches the pretty view and you ponder the beauty of Greece! I could have very happily had a snooze... More

Had read all the reviews and were looking forward to a good meal at Ta Kochilia, unfortunately they did not deliver: my wife had an awful, sweet, slimy cuttlefish stifado (with very little actual cuttlefish!) and I had tough-as-old-boots "octopus in a red wine sauce" served...without any sauce whatsoever, dry, chewy, probably the worst meal we have ever had in...

We left 10 minutes ago with family and liked it very much. Only problem is that they bring too much, so order carefully

Ate there with friend as family. The location is amazing, on the beach front with view across to St. Nicolas island. The good is simply top Greek cuisine, we ate sea food mostly (shrimp, calamari, salads, octopus, etc). Also the people are very friendly and the prices are fair. Definite recommendation!!

Good food and very pleasant owner and waitress. The small fresh squid was excellent but only available on one night we were there.
