“Should be in the top 5!”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

I've been going to Skiathos for years now and we return to Alexandros every time, especially when bringing new friends to the island as it really is the perfect introduction to greek cuisine (and music!) Gorgeous setting in a courtyard surrounded by houses with lovely balconies and a fig (I think?) tree in the middle overhanging the tables. The menu is rather large but I've never had anything on it I didn't like. Nevertheless stick to the traditional dishes as it's what they do best, particularly the souvlaki.A small group of locals play traditional music but it's far from cheesy, in fact I got the impression that they actually just eat there every night and at one point decided to bring their bouzoukis along for fun - a very relaxed set up. Alex and his staff are lovely, always making sure that you're happy without being over-attentive. Good value and not to one to be missed.

“Live Greek music in lovely setting”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Excellent food and relaxing atmosphere under large tree. We really enjoyed the deep fried aubergine starter, swordfish and moussaka.

Excellent service too.

“Very Greek”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Lovely surroundings set around the tree - try and get a terrace table if you can. We particularly enjoyed the deep fried courgette started and the lovely juicy swordfish. Pleasant, friendly service - we thought our waiter looked like Simon Pegg! - complimentary ouzo and live guitar music. what's not to like?

“Fantastic Atmosphere and Food”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Had three lovely meals in our two weeks in Skiathos. A very busy restaurant but always made to feel welcome and that your custom is appreciated. A nice glass of ouzo is offered while you wait for a table.
The atmosphere is very Greek with live music and occasional dancing too!
Looking forward to returning again next year.
