Description: This gastronomic journey began in 1953 in the picturesque amphitheatrical village of Glossa, on Skopelos. That year, grandmother Aglaia Stamataki and her son Nikos (grandfather of the present owner) set up a tavern that they named "Gallia" (France), to appeal to the few French tourists who visited the island at that time. In 1985, the little taverna changed its name and was rebaptized "Agnanti" (meaning "view"), to reflect its beautiful aspect over the Aegean. It was around that time that Agnanti passed into the hands of the children of grandfather Nikos: Stamatis and Mahoula Stamatakis. With their wonderful, well-prepared recipes, Agnanti immediately made an impression and gained a great reputation on the island. Their son, Nikos, knew no other life when growing up, other than Agnanti. He helped out doing little chores and entered at a very young age into the world of the magical flavors his parents created. From an early age Nikos decided that he, too, wanted to devote himself to Agnanti. The dream became a reality and Nikos has now taken on the running of Agnanti. Handed from generation to generation, Nikos feels that Agnanti is a wonderful inheritance. Honoring family tradition, he has further developed Agnanti, putting his own gastronomical stamp on today's restaurant. And so it is that little tavern that opened in 1953 has today become a great modern restaurant without losing any of its atmosphere and originality. Everyone who visits Agnanti today becomes a faithful friend. And it is these friends who, with their love and patronage, continue to write Agnanti's history.

“Agnanti - Glossa was my favourite restaurant!”
Reviewed June 27, 2010

The view was stunning from the back of the restaurant, overlooking Glossa and down towards the sea. Food was the best Ive had in Skopelos - I had fritters to starts with a Tzatziki garlic dip, they were gorgeous and very light. My main dish was stuffed chicken wrapped in vine leaves which came with the most delicious mash and a lemony sauce. My partner had the slow-cooked pork with plums, this came with rice and veg and a tomatoey sauce and that was cooked to perfection. We got a free drink of schnapps afterwards and a free toasted bread with onions and tomatoes which was lovely. My chocolate mousse pudding was devine!

We were with a group of 7 and visited the restaurant on a nice sunny evening. After looking at the menu we could simply not choose ... too many nice options! So we asked the waitor to bring us a selection of specialties. And that is exactly what he did. We were amazed by the excellent food we got presented. First a round of starters and after that a mixture of the mains. Each and every one of them being amazing.

Unfortunately we were quite full so could not do a full round of starters, but the 3 we had were again of exceptional quality.

Besides the great food and service, the location of the restaurant is also amazing. Great views over the hills, the harbor, the sea and it's Islands.
