“Fairly disastrous really”
Review of Ta Giannena

Ta Giannena
Ranked #39 of 76 Restaurants in Hermoupolis
Cuisines: Greek
Restaurant details
Reviewed October 3, 2013

A guide book that we use a lot said this restaurant had a 'French bistro feel' and had 'great seafood' . You could have fooled us as there was nothing French about it and no fish either. The meal we had was the really boring sort of inconsequential food trotted out by many Greek restaurants so don't bother going here if you are after a bit of a treat though the location is quite nice.

classic Greek taverna and an old time classic safe choice. its located on the main street in ermoupolis next to the bars and coffee places. great place to go with your family and kids, with friends or even by your self for a quick meal. (although the best soublaki Maroulaki ) great prices!

This very old-style taverna was recommended to us by the owners of our accommodation in Galissas. We weren't disappointed. Right next to the water with an excellent view of the yachts doing their best to find a parking spot, this was the only place in Syros we found using a tablecloth with a map of the island ! We ordered the lamb dish and the waiter did look a little puzzled when we ordered one each. He expertly avoided death crossing the road between our seats and the taverna and promptly delivered two of the largest portions of lamb I've ever received in a restaurant. Not only did the meat fall off the bone but it was accompanied by large amounts of crunchy skin, a huge portion of boiled greens and fried potatoes. Together with half a litre of house red and half a litre of water the bill was 25 euros! Anyone who has spent any time in Mykonos will see the value here!

Ta Yiannena is one of the best grill restaurants along Hermoupolis harbour. Just take a seat across the road facing the yachts and enjoy the view. It is located at the very end of the harbour and the front is painted green.The food is nice and the best way to choose is to walk into the restaurant and look at the dishes yourself since the cooking takes place behind the main counter.
The staff are ok but could be more friendly some evenings and their English could be better if you have no greek yourself. However you won't be disappointed by the quality of the cooking and the generous portions. Worth trying.
