Yes, Taverna Selini involves a tough climb up many steps. I can assure you, the hike is worth it. Wonderful food, cooked to perfection and such a wonderful view from the terrace.

Our fourth year in Skiathos and gutted we hadn't visited before!
We visited on 26th July as we had chosen it as the venue for our wedding meal two days later.
It was the perfect choice as the owner decorated our table with flowers and the tree with ribbons and provided the best table in the house.
The food and location were perfect too with stunning views over our wedding venue (The Bourtzi) and Skiathos Town.
Absolutely certain to go back again.
Thank you all.

We read reviews on Selini before we left home and made a point of finding it and booking a table. We booked a week ahead, top terrace, corner table overlooking the harbour. The food, service and ambience was just lovely. Don't know if we were just lucky, but it wasn't very busy, only one other table taken on the terrace with us. We arrived at 8.30pm so still light and got some nice pics with port in the background. We both had the usual Greek starters and then had pork for our mains - they were really lovely, so tender with just the right amount of spices. If you have the time, climb the steps and keep going, Taverna Selini is the last one, it's worth it!

I visited this taverna on the recommendation of a friend who had visited earlier in the year and i have to say it was well worth the short trek up the hill from the old port.
The views are amazing as you overlook the old and new ports of skiathos town as well as looking out over the aegean and you can watch the sun set and the moon rise too.
The taverna itself is very clean and there is grape vines growing all around above your heads and i found the service to be excellent and the staff to be very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The bonus was the food and choice was excellent and no more expensive than anywhere else in the town which i personally thought was great considering the views and the setting and i thoroughly enjoyed my visit to this taverna.
My one bit of advice would be to book in advance as it is not a huge place but it can get very busy, we did not book but i guess we were just very lucky as it filled up very quickly after we arrived and there was tables reserved when we got there.
directions to this taverna are as follows
walk down to the old port and when you get to where the torpedo is behind that you will see the cocktail bars with the cushions and the hill ,walk up the hill and you will go past a couiple of cocktail bars and you will come to lola,s italian restaurant on the left walk past there and continue up the hill for about another 50m and selini is on the left.
So if you find yourself in skiathos town give this palce a try it is well worth it

Go up the steps from the Old Port, run the gaunlet of the front of house people at the places you pass, resist them and keep going up and this is the last restaurant. Your reward is a fantastic view over the old port and islands from their balconies. Also you get a great view of the aircfraft as they drop below you on their approach to land, cameras at the ready!
And the food is superb! the king prawns were big, meaty and delicious, the Stifado was the best I've ever, ever had! 5*
They also do a good house wine and all at an affordable price, the best meal of our week!
