“authentic venue and food”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We spent a thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours sat at a table in the small, cobbled square outside ‘Alexandros’ which is situated in the heart of the town and away from the waterfront. The venue quickly became full with both fellow tourists and locals and the atmosphere bustled even before the guitar playing and singing commenced!
The food is basic but fresh and authentic. The stuffed vegetables were delicious with bread and dipping oil and a dish of warm butter beans with olive oil, garlic and spinach was really excellent. With a small jug of house white, a simple but delightful supper for two was less than 25 Euros and the bill came with complimentary ouzo.
The service was a little on the surly side but, nonetheless, I would highly recommend ‘Alexandros’ over the homogenous, waterfront restaurants in Skiathos town.
Venue opens from 6:30pm only and booking recommended.

“Authentic Greek taverna”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We wanted to try this restaurant having read many good reveiews, and was not disappointed.
The restaurant is set in a lovely little cobbled street square, very Greek and the atmosphere is very
laid back, with the musicians playing and singing.
The service was very good. All in all a very pleasant evening.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

My husband and I had a fantastic night at this taverna; we loved every minute!
We enjoyed a meze of Greek salad, tzatziki, cheese saganaki, mussel saganaki and dolmades... all washed down with house white.
The food was perhaps a little basic compared to other tavernas but it was still delicious. I did keep spotting the chicken souvlaki which looked really nice so I'm determined to have that next time!
What makes this taverna so special though is the atmosphere. The old guy and the male owner sit playing Greek music throughout the night and it was just amazing, we loved sat listening to it, just letting the night roll on and clapping along every now and then.
The way they played zorba the Greek was brilliant and you can tell they're very talented.
At one point a guy from one of the tables got up and did some Greek dancing, clearly obstructing the waiters service but they didn't mind at all and it was all in good fun!!
We just had a fantastic night and when my husband asked for the bill in Greek, the old guy patted him on the shoulder and smiled at him!
Just a fantastic taverna and we had planned to go on our last night but it was extremely busy and there were 8 people waiting before us so we ended up going somewhere else. We should have booked really but we will definitely be going back next time, I can't wait already!
