This restaurant is lovely and worth visiting.
The staff are prompt and very friendly. We were instantly shown to a table and made to feel welcome.
The atmosphere is warm and romantic.
We had a Greek salad, cheese saganaki and tzatziki to start and moussaka for main. I have to say that we were both a little disappointed with the moussaka because it was very bland. That said it has not put me off going again because everything else was perfect; I would just have something else.

A very nice location off the main street with a sophisticated atmosphere, without being pretentious.
Good menu selection and very fair prices. went for the first time this year ( don't know why because we have visited Skiathos since 1993 ! ) but will certainl be back next year.

We found Restaurant Paraxenos on our last visit to Skiathos back in 2011 and ate there twice. We went back again this year and found it again. We were not disappointed.
This is a fabulous restaurant serving quality food in quality surroundings just of Papadiamantis street which is the main street in the town. It is more classy than most tavernas on the island and the dining courtyard is a joy to eat in. It's a little more expensive that some restaurants but for a special occasion it id ideal.

There are many places to eat in Skiathos town...for every one we dined in there are 5 that we didn't get around to trying...but of all the ones we ate in this was by far the one we liked the best....you have to search this one out... or.. follow my idiots guide to locating.....start at the bottom of the main street ....walk up the street until you get to portobelos (the English pubbie looking one ) on the right......stop.... turn around walk back down and take first right ....restaurant is on your left in an almost courtyard type setting....kitchen is across the road....a little more sophisticated than some of the others...tables are nicely spaced...staff are excellent...polite , on the ball , professional..smart ..the food is of a very high standard...we returned to eat there again and recommended it to others who totally agreed with our opinion and returned there too....if you are looking for a few beers and a giros give this place a miss...if you are looking for a little more intimate dining with a bit of class you have hit the jackpot.....and in addition..(and most important to my wife.). the toilets...spotless...loo rolls,no need to take your own....locks on doors ,,all the lights work !!!!...hand cleaners towels and empty bins....we ate late and so wasn't just how things were at start of the night....cleanliness was paramount....house wines are very very good and the bill was about average compared with other places we ate in .....
i would highly recommend this restaurant !!!!
