“Classic food, wonderful atmosphere”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Wonderful and simple little taverna tucked away up from Kamini harbour in Hydra, made special by the friendly and attentive owner Theo. Classic Greek dishes, sometimes with a twist and the best wine we've had on the island. This is what you imagine eating out in the Greek islands is going to be like...

“Gourmet dinning in Hydra”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Thodoris, the restaurant owner, is a very open and polite person, passionate with top-quality quisine.
You will not taste touristic dishes here, but real gourmet kitchen, with incredients of the finest quality at reasonable prices.
Thodoris loves his (summer) job and this is evident.
Pirofani is only open during summertime, as Thodoris is half-Greek resident (rest in Switzerland and everywhere in the world).
Limited number of tables, so booking is advised.
Located on a quit pictoresque street of Kamini.
If you go to Hydra, don't miss it!

“I got the feel'in that tonight gone be a good night!”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

pirofani's restaurant aka as Theo's, is best described as " the place where the elite meets to eat" on Hydra.The elite consist of a variety of people IE locals who know, foreigners who discover but mainly word of mouth.
Theo is the main ( fatal for some) attraction because we all know his food is always consitant (IE very good ).
The food is more a mix of Greek / Oriental and Euopean, so handy when you're tired of the run of the mill Greek taverna food.Prices are OK taking the quality in consideration.
A great recommendation, don't leave Hydra without an evening at Theo's.

A place not to be missed. The food is amazing. The place is charming. The owner, Theo, is witty and wonderful and makes everyone feel like a guest in his home. Beautiful, beautiful Hydra.
