“Wonderful food, great service and amazing views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

After a week and a half of eating at some of Athens and Greece's finest restaurants, I'm finally reviewing what I feel is the best. Set alongside the port, amazing views inside and out, it's a wonderful place for lunch or dinner. The chef sat along side us to see what we would enjoy eating and told us what he would recommend that day. One of us being Celiac, he was very accommodating and even offered to make a soup the next day sans flour. Our meals were incredible and what stood out was his attention to sauces. The man knows how to prepare some different takes on food and it was a delight to eat there. We loved it so much, we came back for a second meal and it was just as good, if not better.

Our only wish is that it wasn't so cold out, so we had to eat inside. (we were here in winter) But the decor and ambiance of the place is so amazing, eating inside was still a treat.

“Good restaurat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

A wonderful restaurant located exactly on the rocks, overlooking the sea, just outside the harbor. The food is good, a bit to classy for my stiles, but that's just me. The location is very nice, very romantic, the prices are not that cheap, but the atmosphere is good and relaxing.

“Nicest restaurant with a view on Hydra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

the food here is really quite good...and a notch or two above the usual (but delicious) Greek taverna fare at most other Hydra island eateries. A more filled-out and foodie style menu, with interesting salads, starters, pastas, etc. Contemporary (white, clean, hip) design is the only thing of its kind on the island. This is the only place on Hydra that one would feel the slightest inclination to "dress up," so if you have a special occasion to celebrate on Hydra, this is the spot. The view is unmatched by any other island restaurant. It commands the westernmost tip of the harbor, with a lovely patio and sea views.

“This is what people come to Greece for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Omilos is a restaurant located right between the harbor and the well-known rocks where people dive off of Hydra. It's setting is, in a few words, breathtaking. It is basically a "balcony" that cantilevers over the water. As you sit, sipping your wine, and eating your meal, the waves splash below you just 30' away. We have been here three times (3 years in a row) and the food and service have never let us down. We would, without a doubt, recommend it as probably one of the best examples of what people come to Greece for.

“best restaurant in Hydra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

contrary to too many critics here, we just loved the place, yes it's more expensive than the tavernas, but it offers a great view on the side of the ocean, music lounge-classic perfect for the ambiance, the meals were very good (A1 quality), the server new his menu and the components and even could describe every single bottle of wine (what is so rare even at 5stars hotel) ... it cost us 100euros for almost 3 hrs of delightful pleasures (for the eye, the ears and of course the mouth) .. will definitively go there again... I recommend it for people whom are food lovers and romantic. if you are looking for a 20 euros meal and fast greek service, avoid that restaurant, but if like us you enjoy pleasure, go there, much better than the sunset one...
