The views are spectacular however the food is badly cooked - lukewarm not hot and overpriced. Left this restaurant hungry. Every other restaurant we have visited in the last 14 days gas delivered well cooked food. Tonight our food was like warm and the customer service was non existent!

The location of this taverna is stunning, you do need to go while there is still some light otherwise you would miss the beauty of the setting. The prices reflect the setting,being rather higher than else where.The food however was good when it arrived.

We discovered this restaurant while on a walking tour. It is set up high on the south side of the Old Town. The garden and views are wonderful, as was the warm welcome we received. We arrived late but when I asked if they were open, the owner simply smiled and said: 'Of course, we are Greeks!' We shared a... More

This little taverna is tucked away on the south side of the old town away from all the other restaurants with gorgeous views out to the offshore islands. Not the easiest place to find but well worth the effort. The menu is typically Greek. I had the best Lamb Kleftiko ever and my partners pork souvlaki was also pretty good,... More

If you are looking for something delicious, away from the hustle of the tourist traps, come to Plakes! We wandered away a bit from the touristy restaurants and found this gem. It has a spacious terrace with a wonderful view of the sea and a fantastic environment. We ordered the sea food platter, which was absolutely delicious. The service was... More

This restaurant's u.s.p. is its amazing position on the corner of the headland to the south of the town, affording a wonderful prospect, particularly as the sun sets and the moon rises. The service is friendly and efficient; the food is rather average, however, and on the expensive side by Greek standards, no doubt reflecting the premium location. Worth a... More

A very welcoming host with great views of the sea and very good Greek food, a little off the beaten track which was a bonus. Excellent fresh fish of the day. Would recommend seeking out this taverna.

I keep coming back to this restaurant "hidden" in the old town of Skiathos. Here is peace and quite and the most stunning view. The food is very good.
