This restaurant is wonderfully located, so we stopped by at the end of an afternoon to book a table with a view.
When we came back, the waiter gave us a random table, so we asked him if we could get a table near the sea, as booked earlier. He replied very drily that it was the only table available, but he would give us another table as soon as possible. So we sat there.
Five minutes later, a table near the sea became available. We thought it would be ours, but he put a new couple that hadn't made any reservation. We ordered two salads. There wasn't much to eat in the plate. Then another table became available. Once again, he gave it to some new people. We decided that the game was over.
We payed 28 € for two ridiculous salads, and went eating somewhere else, hungry and angry.

In hydra for two days sailing round Greek islands and were really looking forward to trying out the but have to say we were disappointed with most dishes and have eaten much better elsewhere at more reasonable prices. However the setting couldn't be bettered and service was good and friendly. Probably wouldn't return unless invited there!

Other reviewers have provided the details of the wonderful setting and easy walk from town. We experienced a wonderful meal in a stunning setting with terrific music piped into the outdoor dinning area as we watched the clear blue-green water lap against the wall of the restaurant.

We are spending 8 days in Hydra, a very touristic and expensive greek destination. And 8 days is too much, but this is a different subject! Not any more the Hydra we knew 10 years ago. We decided to go back for the sake of memories! We were shocked by the touristic trap Hydra has now become. And so disapointed not to find at least a good restaurant till we stopped at Omilos on our 4th night. Goodbye souvlaki, insipid greek salads at 8 Euros+,so called fresh fish brought probably from mailnland, diluted wine,hello cuisine with a fine touch, a cuisine where you feel the chef has made an effort to serve you pleasant and good dishes. The setting is wonderfull as many restaurants in Hydra, just by the ocean at your feet, the service was excellent, and the food was delicious! The house wine by the glass was also surprisingly good. Now this comes with a price,but we were so discouraged at Hydra that we did not mind the 90 Euros we paid. Every good thing has a price and I'd rather pay more and have great food than pay half the price for something I would feed the local cats with!!! In all, delicious food, great service,magnificent view....At last, a good resto in Hydra, even if we had to pay the price! ....but it is Hydra after all! And instead of the traditional glass of ouzo the owner offered us a very good, cool and delicious lemoncello as a digestive after diner drink.... Epharisto poli!
