Once again during another two week stay in Skiathos we ate on most occasions at the Lyhnari. Having returned on now nine times to this lovely island and tried many restaurants we have found it difficult to find one that meets our expectations like the Lyhnari. It provides excellent food, reasonable prices and always a warm welcome. We look forward... More

Lyhnari serves excellent and very tasty local food. Beef, lamb and fish dishes were all very good. Staff is friendly and caring, and Ouzo is on the house.

Don't get me wrong, there was nothing wrong with the food, but it was no better than many other places we've been to in Skiathos, and certainly quite expensive - €11 for Moussaka, €8 for a Greek salad. We were a party of 5 hungry walkers, and the bill here was at least 25% more than anywhere else.

My sister and brother in law booked this venue for a wedding rehearsal dinner for a large group of people. Tables looked lovely, great ambiance. Demitri his wife and staff did well getting the food out for a large group - and it was hot. We had a range of traditional dishes, all full of flavour. Everything worked like clockwork.... More

We booked through the hotel and were met by the owner who took us through the menu and we were really happy with his recommendations of Moussaka and Beef Stifado we will be back😊

If this Taverna was in a better location you would never get a table, as it is tucked away in a back street just off the ring road you may just get one. This is a popular, authentic Greek taverna serving excellent food! You will not be disappointed so try and find it.

We wanted authentic Greek food and this restaurant /taverna did not disappoint. I starred with the Tomato Croquettes and followed with Moussaka. My husband had Beef Stifado, we were given a complementary dessert and ouzo on arrival. For quality homemade food this could not be beaten.

Lovely garden setting just outside the town centre. We visited the restaurant following reviews and recommendations and weren't disappointed. We were in the company of our grown up children and each of us had a different traditional dish which was cooked to an excellent standard. Slightly pricerier than Main Street restaurants but well worth it from the complimentary ouzo at... More

Although Lyhnari is not in a very good location it is certainly worth looking out for as it's one of our favourite tavernas in Skiathos - the food and service is great and you get a free ouzo to start and a lovely free dessert to finish - would definitely recommend booking as it is very popular.

If it's a traditional Greek restaurant you are looking for then don't miss out on eating at Lynhari. The owner and his wife run a very nice restaurant with excellent service and probably the best traditional Greek food on the island. Worth booking
