Even though I went to a science and math high school, I don't consider myself a mathematical expert. But I do know that 4 into 17 is more than 4 and not 3. Tripadvisor made a mistake on my last review and gave this restaurant an average rating despite all of my higher marks. That is an injustice to the restaurant, to you and to me. Tripadvisor also makes it virtually impossible to make a correction or even have a dialogue with them once something is on the site. I value the Tripadvisor community, and generally believe they provide a good service-but not acknowledging your mistakes is a bad character trait.

We went to this restaurant twice during a 4 day stay on Hydra. It was clearly the best restaurant we enjoyed on the island. I am also puzzled as to why they don't include it in Hydra town when it is just a few meters away from the harbor.

Since they won't correct their mistake, perhaps a new review will partially compensate for their inaccuracy. For their sake and ours, they should have a means of correcting an error-especially theirs.

The location is great but the restaurant tries to pretend to be the high class "club" that it isn't!
Ends up to be a tourist trap with bad value for money and untypical uncaring service.

Visited on May 2014. Best to visit before sunset, so around 20:00. The dishes were tasty but overpriced. There is an option for a menu which is (at least for 2 people) better value for money.

A lovely perch on the rocks around the corner from Hydra port. They could just rake in the euros from the vantage point, as many establishnents do in this town. Instead, there is some able cooking going on; a fairly extensive wine list; friendly and capable service and, of course the lovely water's edge setting.

You will pay a slight premium for the real estate, but most likely you will find if a worthy expense. Pasta dishes and desserts very satisfying. A nice respite from the typical Greek repertoire.

The chef likes to venture with established dishes (even simple ones like carbonara) and he somehow manages to come up with a surprisingly tasty outcome. A lot of Cretan influence with original flavours and a marvelous panacota (best ever...)

As I already said, better for the heavier wallets...
