We were told to go eat at Arodou since it is one of the best taverna's on the Island
and so we did.
We had dinner and enjoyed the lovely terrace with splendid views.
Unfortunately the food did not match the view. Maybe we were unlucky but
the pikilia we ordered was rather uninspired as it consisted only of a series of balls : tomato, cheese, zucchini and so on. The balls weren't bad but a pikilia should offer a wider range of meze and not just balls.
The calamari was not fresh but frozen, admitted the waiter. He forgot to tell us.
The best dish was the goat stew.
The bill was flawed too : the prices did not match those on the menu. You guessed : they were higher. A new season, new prices, we can understand but please show them on the menu.
To end on a positive note : most people we met who ate there claimed the food was good and last but not least : the frappé they served us on another occasion was excellent.

Best food and best service on the island! The server Mickey speaks perfect english and is incredibly friendly, along with the owners. We have eaten here 3 nights and are likely headed back tomorrow for more. All of the food was incredible and the wine great on ice. Love this place, don't miss out, be sure to stop by.

Open earlier than usual opening hours. Portions are so big. Outside/terrace table gives you an amazing view on the sea.

We came for a family lunch after spending all morning at the sea. The food arrives fast and the service was kind and polite. The waitres were charming and welcoming. We ate the goat, sovlaki and chicken - all were great.

On our round trip around the island of Ikaria we dropped into the Arodou just by accident.
From my point of view this was the best restaurant on the Island we found during our one week stay.
Very delecious and typical greek / Ikarian food with generous portions, very nice service and a nice view, a clean place, too.
If I come back to Ikaria this Tavern will be a must.
