“Excellent ! ”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is owned by an English lady. But the staff and chef are Greek. Lovely staff and amazing Greek food. The menu has a wider range of choices than you get from all the other restaurants in Skala.
Set in a side street by Zeus souvenir shop it's an absolute gem of a find. We are back next year for our honeymoon and we will be returning to the excellent Galerea.

“TAKE A DIVERVION,FROM SKALA HIGH ST.! SIDE ST, REWARD!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

GALERA, [Annie place]Located off the High St, in Skala Village. Great Greek Cuisine with a British touch.Has a selection of good meals, from a wide choice on the menu I recommend the lamb shank with vegatables, We have tried most of the meal ,Greek and English style type vegatables with your meal ,, or what ever you request.,Annie and her friendly staff,every step of the way,I choose the ros"e house wine, one of the various mezzes ,[cant manage the sweet]you sometimes wait a little while ,for a freshly cooked dish. [its not the cheapest,just one of the best] Have been coming to Skala for 14 yrs, and now we are retired,the past 5yrs we take 6 wks at a time ,Giving us plenty of opportunity to try out lots of restaurants as we do ,eat out every night, Only found one poor restaurant,the Chinese and that gone now .Enjoy the GALERA .

“Skala Dinner”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Restaurant on the back streets and needs to be found, well worth the search.
Excellent Greek food and a very varied menu.
We had four meals here and tried various dishes and not one was a disappointment.
One of the few Greek restaurants we found that knew how to cook vegatables !!
I must admit I had the Pork chops twice and they were so tasty and the beer was also something to die for.
The staff were very friendly and nothing too much trouble.

“Very good”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

It is on a side street but obvious enough particularly if you are walking from the accommodation on that side of Skala. The raised seating area affords a pleasing view in the daytime. The food is always good and this year was no exception. Try the lamb kleftiko.
