If this restaurant ever had good food and quality service it must have been a long time ago! My partner had pork giuvesti for her main course which was a terrible dry splodge of a dish while i had lobster thermidore and they clearly don't know what a thermidore sauce is meant to be. But worst of all was th eservice, they couldn't cope wihtht enumber of people in th erestaurant when we were there and made no apologies for keeping us waiting 20 minutes between courses and then twenty five minutes for th ebill. The worst restaurant we have been to in skala on our holiday this year. Be warned!

We came back from Scala a few weeks ago and my husband and children are still raving about what a lovely week they had; we discovered Aquarius tucked away at the end of the high street on our first night as it was located very conveniently near our hotel and was not caught up in the noise and bustle of the other eateries on the main road.
It is a warm and inviting family owned restaurant which was able to cater for our evening family meals as well as a couple of quiet dinners for two that we managed to arrange; the management were so considerate and gave us an intimate table, scattering it with rose petals!
Over the course of the week we visited a number of times and on each occasion were impressed by the quality of the food, the service and the facilities.My favourites included the home made bread, mezes and aubergine bake; the steaks were particularly good.
Nothing was too much trouble and on our last night, we were even given a free selection of sweets from the desert menu to say good bye.
I would highly recommend thsi restaurant to any one and am planning to go back again next year.

I have spent alot of time in Skala and have eaten in almost every restaurant many times over the years and I have to put Aquarius top of my list of favourites. They do great traditional food aswell as dishes that are a little bit different from the run- of- the- mill menus of some of the other restaurants. I loved the spinach risotto!
It's family run and really friendly, so when you cant decide what to have or which wine to order...just ask!
The setting is great too- being just round the corner from the hustle and bustle of the high street, its peaceful and you can sit and look out to sea through the pine trees. I like that it has an upmarket atmosphere but without the exorbitant prices of some of the competition. Definately one not to be missed but go early in your holiday 'cos it will definately be one you want to return to!

Very nice, good food and the local Merlot here is our choice wine of the hols. Just pipped at the post by' The Flamigo' due to food quality and menu choice.

A must if in Skala!
