We have been visiting Skala off and on for fourteen years and have visited this restaurant since our first trip to Skala. At that time it was only the locals who frequented it and the odd tourist. It is a different story now - you need to reserve a table to ensure you get in or wait till later in... More

Friends had spied this place so we came here for gyros for dinner one evening. Yummy! There was a really good choice of gyros as well as many other dishes. You could mix and match smaller dishes or go for just one main meal, no matter as it all tasted very good and other diner's meals looked just as good.... More

Reporting live from Skala. Yet another TA recommendation. This place is just off the main Street and obviously well renowned. It looks a bit like a kebab house, it mainly is. But the food, fabulous. The staff are so friendly, think it's family run. The house wine, excellent, the service, good, the food? I have the mixed grill. Very different... More

We had a couple of evening meals here and both were fantastic! The atmosphere in the restaurant is great, the staff are friendly and attentive and the service is first class. The meals are all home-cooked, the prices are very reasonable and as the portions are huge the value for money is second to none. We noticed quite a lot... More

This is a lovely taverna with amazing food. Afroditi looks after you really well. The portions are big - you will not feel hungry after you have finished IF you can finish it. I recommend the pork or chicken gyros portion and the Meze (either for one or two people).

We came here on the back of a recommendation from my parents and it didn't disappoint. We went for the meze for two, which comes with a range of meats, pitta breads and dips and is well worth the money. Cheap place to eat and it's always busy, for good reason. Very nice.
