Last year we visited here as the food has always been very good and the place does look a cut above the majority for a special night out. However it has always been a little too posh for the average holiday maker and the singer and white piano were always a little off putting. However they now have a smaller... More

Used to stop here for a drink on the way back to our hotel from the village. Beer was cold and the wine was nicely chilled. The seating was very comfortable with a great view to the beach. Prices on a par with most every other bar in village. Well worth a visit

This restaurant is in one of the best locations in Skala and portrays 5 star dining. Whilst the food isn't awful it wasn't 5 star quality and definitely not traditional Greek food . The bar area is quite nice and drinks are reasonably priced. Recommend after dinner or before dinner drinks

Ordered 4 drinks. 1 good, 3 not. Blue lagoon was green and a totally different mix. Two Malibu and pineapple only thing missing was the Malibu. We complained, very aggressive manager said he would call the police, which we readily invited. Then he backed down, horrible aggressive man. Who is clearly ripping people off. So watch them make your drinks... More

Had a lovely evening for my mother-in-law's birthday. The staff made such an effort to celebrate the occasion with table decorations and a complimentary bottle of bubbly, but we're also very conscious of my mother-in-law's coeliac disease and made sure her needs were accommodated. The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. Can't wait to revisit!

This is a pretty and smart looking place from the outside - and it is very clean and well presented. However, it has delusions of grandeur!! I am a single traveller - yes, a lady travelling all by herself - and I also have over 20 years experience in the restaurant trade. The waiter who showed me to my table... More

We stopped here for coffee and drinks whilst visiting Skala. The staff were very pleasant and attentive. The restaurant and facilities were spotlessly clean. Excellent quality coffee in a very relaxing environment, we returned later in the day and had drinks again we were greeted warmly. Would most certainly return and next time in Skala would book to have dinner.

We have had 2 meals here, the first was tasteless, so we thought it might have been an off night, so we tried again and it was worse, so don't go here if you want good food, nice location, that's about it, owner is always scowling at everybody, and you always see him on his motorcycle looking at other restaurants...
