I am writing this belatedly while preparing our summer 2013 vacations - and while reconsidering a visit at the island of Milos. Last summer we did an 8-islands marathon all around Cyclades. Milos was the first island we did and Gialos finally came to be the best restaurant not just of Milos but of all Cyclades.If I bother to write this now it is because we had a most excellent experience. Location great, food just excellent - what we loved at Gialos is how carefully cooked were all dishes away from your average touristic restaurants, with a finesse you would expect in the more expensive restaurants of main cities rather than in a small touristic village like Pollonia! In our first dinner there, we had ordered only a simple dish ordering a particular wine. The table next to us ordered right after us the same one, amingst a huge order of lots of expensive dishes. I then accidentally overheard that this was the last one so I thought the waiter would give the bottle to them but the bottle came to us, served by a guy whom we later recognised as the owner. Later when we got to talk with him, I could not resist but ask him on this - he explained to us that our order came before so it had to be to us - he would not differentiate clients on how much they ordered! That kind of respect towards clients is not present even in Michellin-starred restaurants. Gialos is a must in Milos!

“The Best Restaurant in Milos”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

To be fair, we have been spoilt with excellent fresh food wherever we have eaten on the island. Special mention to Christos and his wonderful restaurant. My Dad and I are staying for a week and it is our last night tonight and we plan on going back to Gialos for the third time, a clear winner for both delicious and fresh food, delicious and dangerously moorish wine (red in particular) and superb, proffessional service that wouldn't be out of place in a top class London restaurant, although far more charming and friendly! If you're going to Milos, then do go and if you are staying in Pollonia then lucky you!

I had read a recent review of this restaurant on trip advisor and we decided to try it, mainly for the Black Angus Top Sirloin (American). the restaurant is called Gialos and is on the harbour in
Pollonia, Milos, Greece, It is on the harbour and the sign may differ from the above spelling, but it is decorated in shades of light green and tables outside facing the harbour and tables inside as well. The service was excellent, and the food was above reproach. We had the fried cheese and onion pies as a starter and the steak. It was ever so tasty and one of the best steaks I have had in a long time. Our waiter was exceptionally kind and we were treated with a great deal of attention. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“The best restaurant in the island”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Achilleas and Christos, the owners of the restaurant are waiting at the entrance of Gialos to welcome you. Achilleas is also the chef and everything you will order has gone through his attention and final touch. It's a value for money restaurant with Greek food, pure Greek ingredients and excellent atmosphere and view. If you visit Milos Gialos is a MUST to have dinner at.
