“If you don't mind poor service I would reccomend this place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

It is a shame that their service is so poor as the tapas are good and the atmosphere & decor are great! But it appears that the manager and staff are drunk most of the time and try to be friendly but take ten years to get what you ask them for. We dined a second night to see if it was just that night they were having a bad one, but no, the next night they were just as drunk and forgetful! The service is frustrating but the food n atmosphere are good, up to you really, hope this helps.

“Great food, atmosphere and friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

Some of the best food I've come across in Greece! From the eggplant dip to the spiced meatballs it tasted amazing and the portion size was sufficant for a tapas place. Really a must in Ios :) hostess with the mostess.

“Great food, better service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

We chanced across this gem in Ios, by far the best restaurant we visited in the Cyclades.

The chef George delivered plate after plate of delicious mezze, with the pork in jack Daniels sauce and Popeyes salad being the favourites.

But the real stars of the evening were Theodora and her team of gorgeous, charming waitresses. They created a brilliant atmosphere, full of humour, warmth and a personal touch in everything they did. One of the best dining experiences we've ever had, capped with 7 rounds of shots with the team.

Theodora, love from David, Miles and Karl, hopefully see you in London.

“Fairty atmosphere and Good Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

I came here with some friends: we reserved for one night and decided to confirm also for the following night.
Good typical food: well cooked and well calibrated portions.
Personnel is friendly, fun and "bizarre" (in a good way, of course!)
Ok Prices and beautiful atmosphere

“Nice setting, mostly good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Navigate through the alleys of Ios Chora and find this restaurant. It is definitely one of the good ones on Ios, and the setting is very pretty, like a romantic private garden with candles and knick-knacks daintily strewn about.

The service could have been better. They were slow in delivering the menu and the bill, but quick to deliver the food. We were asked three times if we were finished, and we were not there for long.

The food was mostly very good. We ordered tzatziki, green salad, pork in honey, wine and bread, all of which was excellent. We also ordered moussaka croquettes, but they were out, so instead the waitress recommended the tortilla rolls, which neither of us liked, and we sneakily fed to an alleycat when the waitress was not looking, because she tried kicking it out several times.

So, nice setting, mostly very good food, and the service... so-so. We got a shot to finish off our meal, so we think it deserves 4 stars. Book in advance, as it gets crowded after 8 pm.
