Idyllic setting, super-friendly service by the charming hosts, honest and fresh food cooked to perfection, budget-friendly,.... it's simply the best restaurant on the whole island, and a breath of fresh air when compared to the many overcrowded bayside restaurants with annoying "proppers" by the door, trying to lure you in for often just mediocre food.

When going to Stella's, just ask them to surprise you, and enjoy the little marvels that will appear on your table! Grilled Halloumi cheese with a fresh salad, oven potatoes with feta melted on top, tender lamb freshly cooked in the stone oven.... You will not be disappointed !

Kyriakos is as friendly as his mother Stella Always has been. He tries new combinations with traditional Greek ingredients. Superb food and a wonderful location! Don't leave Samos before you tried this restaurant

We saw this ón Tripadvisor, and planned our trip to Stella When we rented 4 wheels. Drove The Way from Pythagorien to Balos and Stella for lunch.
At 14:30 we and another couple were The only guests in the garden. The son (waiter and Cook) with experience from etc. Germany, introduced us and asked what we would like today, NO MENUCARD. We had a Nice tzatiki with the mothers (cook) homemade bread from 5:00 in The morning, and grilled Shrimps for me, and a chicken salad with feta for my partner.
Perfectly cooked and combined with an excellent choice of vegetables and salad, lemon and balsamico and more.
Not difficult food, but good quality and a taste of great cooking skills.
To finish with, we had some sweet grapes in a sirup.
Had a glass of local White vine, and finally served in a REAL Wine glas. Not like other places where they fill the small thick glasses to the Edge. (YES!)

We have tried the other good recommended restaurants at Samos, by using tripadvisor, but this was DEFINATELY the Best place at Samos.

Excellent service, great food and a charming little place close to Balos Beach.

If you stay in Balos,you really must try Stellas.We have holidayed in Greece for many years,& this is the best food & service we have ever experienced.There is no menu here,Stellas son Kyriakos spends time with you discussing what is available,& finding out what your tastes are.He then produces an amazing standard of food,that you would not expect in a small taverna.
