“Perfect setting - disappointing food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

What a setting, like a scene from the Shirley Valentine film, with some of the tables set up on the beach at the edge of the sea. Perfect place for a romantic meal. Sadly the setting was the best thing about this place. We were so disappointed by the food. The whitebait was nothing special at all, in fact my partner reckons I cook it better and I am no great chef ! The bread was certainly not fresh, unlike any other place in Greece where the bread is usually to die for. Improve the food and this place could be a real gem.

“Lovely setting and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

This was one of the nicest restaurants we went to on our week's holiday. The food was fresh and cooked beautifully the staff were first class but did not warn us that the seafood platter for two was huge and you probably won't need a starter. Some tables were actually on the beach which made for a lovely setting to enjoy an evening meal listening to the lapping waves as you eat. The platter was 70e for two so not cheap but very nice, just too big.

“The best view ever, amazing seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Set right on the beach between bus stops 11 and 12 Taverna Sklithri is one of a kind. We were looking for somewhere within walking distance to our apartment in Achladies and hit the jack pot with this place. If you want a real Shirley Valentine glass of wine on the beach with delicious seafood to accompany it this place is for you. The staff were not fawning all over you as they can be in some places but they were definitely pleasant and happy to chat and answer questions. We ordered starters and then the mixed seafood for two, however the portion of the seafood platter was immense and even one of the staff members said it was enough for four people! However they offered to box it up for us to take home which we happily took them up on (it was lovely for lunch the next day!) and then brought us fresh fruits and a lovely liquor to cleanse our palates. Overall probably in the top two meals we had in Skiathos (and the other was the balcony table of the Windmill!)

“The Best location and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

The location of this taverna is incredible, right on the beach, you can even dine on the beach!! The selection of fresh fish is amazing and so reasonably priced. We never eat twice in the same restaurant whilst on holiday but we broke the rule and did to this taverna. Once you try the food here you will crave more!!
