We were advised to go to The Old Times by a hotel barman who goes there for his meals out on occasions and both our meals and she service we got from Giorgios were flawless.

Nice family owned restaurant. Visited outside peak days, so service was quick but with a nice break between the meals. Be prepared to spend some more time on peak days to experience excellent quality. Definitively will visit once more this week.

We decided to visit here based on previous reviews / ratings. Beautiful setting overlooking the sea. Half of our party really enjoyed their food whereas the other half would rate the food as average. Unfortunately, the service was really poor (waited 15 mins to order drinks after sitting down, and gave up waiting for service after our main course...actually felt... More

We popped in to Old Times tonight after walking past it during our holiday. We had their homemade bread and oil for starters which was hot and fresh. For main we shared a mixed grill which was hot, tasty and not too much. I also had the shrimp in a tomato sauce which was very tasty and had a wonderful... More

Eaten here twice since we've been staying between Skala and porous. Couldn't have been nicer to our two yr old and staff were really lovely. There's a grass area with some fruit trees and some toys to keep little ones distracted if they get bored. Whilst I wouldn't say it's 'targeted' at kids market they perfectly cater for them. Halloumi... More

Old Times was our most favourite restaurant on Skala. The food is beautiful. We had the shrimps (which were huge) in a spicy tomato and feta sauce, and the cheese pies (2) which were feta in filo pastry, I have to say to die for. We then had mousaka and lamb souvlaki (lamb on skewers) which was equally delicious. And... More

We had dinner here and the food was good with very attentive service. It is a lovely setting and has great views across to the mainland. Will return if we go back to Skala.

Decided to venture back to what had been one of our favourite restaurants but we were disappointed - not with the food, that was delicious as always, but the place lacked atmosphere. The waiters were efficient but not overly friendly which is what you usually get in Greece. Disappointed.

Went in here for a romantic dinner one evening after hearing about good reviews. We were seated straight away. Waited about 10 mins for a menu, another 10 mins before having our drinks order taken. etc etc Just took forever to get anything. Food came out and was averagely tasty (considering its one of the most expensive places in Skala...pretty... More
