Simplistic dishes, presented as something extraordinary while being quite overpriced.nice view from the balcony, but this is not enough.

I find this establishment somewhat overrated. It is true that the restaurant offers dishes that are its own specialty (e.g., the chicken breasts à la Jimmy), however in large part the variety and quality offered is no different from the island's average. By contrast, I found service, kindness and availability of the personnel below average. The only really outstanding asset of the restaurant is its position, with a breathtaking view over the harbour of Skala. This, however, is also one of its weakest points: Patmos is a very windy island, particularly with the summer meltemi, and the restaurant's balcony is pitilessly exposed to it.

Had lunch here a couple of times after our walks up to Chora from Skala and decided to go back for dinner and sunset. What an amazing view of Skala, the bay, the rest of Patmos and the surrounding islands! You could easily sit here for hours with a drink and just enjoy the scenery. And all day long there are swallows flying past the terrace. Among the food we tried was lovely pasta pesto, great taramasalata, lentils, kolokythokeftedes (courgette fritters), veggie omelet and tender steak with a smooth garlic & wine sauce. All home made, fresh and very tasty. And I loved the sweet and sticky desserts. Service is very friendly and they're justly proud of what they do. In other places with a major tourist attraction like the monastery or the view prices would be through the roof and the food unappetizing, but not here!

Nine of us went to Jimmy's in time for a stunning sunset that beats Santorini (and yes I have been there many times). Food was great and Jimmy so friendly we felt like family. Wonderful evening.

We went into his shop to buys few things and ended up having some ouzo on the balcony with Jimmy. Great character, lots of good stories. Watch for his underwear protest down by the bus stop if he doesn't get the building permit the officials have promised him. Great time!
