Stopped by this restaurant for lunch whilst visiting Manolates. It is right near the top of the village with great views out to the sea. The food was very fresh and could not be faulted. We were also served sweet wine compliments of the house.

Arrived after tough climb at 19 to empty restaurant. A little difficult to get proper attention from waiter. Food was ok but no more. Very atmospheric family run place. The view alone makes it worth going I think.

Manolates is one of the most beautifull village in Samos.When you visit it follow the sighns to Loukas Tavern. Its a bit further from the main square but the view, the great food and the service worth it.
