My wife and I have always said this is our favourite restaurant in Skiathos and that is high praise as there are so many good ones . This visit the food was still good as was the service . However my lamb kleftico was a little over cooked and the oven potatoes not as tasty as previous visits . Also... More

We'd walked past this courtyard a number of times and each time I'd been drawn to its tranquility. After a recommendation from a fellow holidaymaker we attempted to find the restaurant (after a helpful Greek biker guided us there) we realised that it was this beautiful place! Setting was like an oasis just off a busy skiathos town street. The... More

Very nice food and wine, great menu choice and friendly staff. I highly recommend the lamb Kleftiko and stuffed vine leaves plus a really good wine list to choose from.

One of our favourite restaurants with two visits in our 2016 two week stay. Setting is lovely and staff are very friendly and usually very efficient although on our second visit we did notice one or two waiting for food - that said we usually eat 7.30 - 8 so I suppose as it reaches peak time 8,30-ish it is...

We were tempted into the restaurant by its beautiful atmosphere and layout and didn't even bother looking at the menu before we went in because it was so perfect. The food was even better! I had fish with a spinach and cream sauce which was delicious and the rest of the family also had lovely dishes such as a chicken... More

Visited this lovely courtyard style restaurant twice, the food was brilliant and the staff were great to. The only thing I can't understand is why they don't charge more for the food!!

I review this restaurant every year & it never disappoints! Last reviewed in May and have been back again in June/July. If you've never tried it, please do, it's absolutely still my favourite restaurant on the Island! Wonderful food, lovely staff and a gorgeous courtyard setting right in the middle of town!

We initially stumbled across this lovely restaurant whilst looking for somewhere else which is all part of the Skiathos mystery tour. Glad we did though since the food was great and authentic plus excellent service. We have been back a few times since and it was consistently excellent.

Thank Clive B
