Description: Lo & La is a genuine Italian Restaurant located on the steps in Skiathos Old Port facing Bourtzi with a breathtaking view over the Old Harbour. In few years Lorentzo and Anastasia made Lo & La one of the most popular dinner place in Skiathos Town thanks to the high quality of the cuisine along with a friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices. Is not a case that Lo&La reached in few years the top position in Tripadvisor reviews, thanks to all their customers

“Wonderful dinner and views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

We ate here on the second night of our holiday - we'd been recommended it by friends and as it was quite early at 7pm it was fairly quiet so we got a great table with lovely views across the port.

The service was friendly and attentive and the manager checked that we were enjoying our meals. Definitely - I had the swordfish which was excellent and the free mini dessert and limoncello at the end of the meal was a lovely touch.

Would definitely recommend.

“Beautiful view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

This restaurant looks over the old harbour and has spectacular views. Food and service is good, but booking essential to get a decent table

“Cracking Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

Booked a table and just as well as it was a night when there was rain so the covers were down on the side of the restaurant. We got a nice table and the service was attentive and just the right speed (not too rushed and not making you wait ages). We had deep fried feta and tomato/mozzarella starters which was the Mrs fave starter all holiday. We then had sole fillets and chicken/mushroom pasta and both were presented well and tasted superb. The service was very good and it was also memorable as there was a storm so we had to hit a few bars! Give it a go, I'm sure you'll love it!

“Don't know what all the fuss is about!!?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

With the benefit of Trip Advisor we had pretty much chosen the restaurants we wanted to visit, before we even landed in Skiathos- Lo and La seemed a top choice and we ate their our first night. I'm afraid, we were underwhelmed, food quite average, the tables were shabby, obviously weathered from the relentless sun, but no table cloths to cover the ragged edges. The husband and wife team who run the restaurant were very pleasant, welcoming and eager to please but did not make up for our below par experience which did not get our holiday off to a good start. For the hour and a half we sat at our table we were bothered by 4 beggars- a fella playing an accordion by the tables and asking for money, 2 people selling flowers and a disabled man selling bracelets, it was awkward and embarrassing, the staff saw these people enter the tables and did not request they leave in order not to bother their clients which I would expect when dining.

“Clumsy waiters ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

We went to Lo&La a few days into our holiday and we had absolutely amazing service, food was gorgeous. However the second visit I had wine thrown all over me by the waiter which wasn't the best thing to happen, I had red wine all over my skirt. The waiter actually threw the bottle off wine in the air as some sort of trick but obviously failed and dropped it everywhere. The wine went absolutely everywhere. I mean don't get me wrong this was an easy mistake to make, but the waiter was so clumsy. In a busy restaurant you don't go making silly tricks like this. On the whole the first visit was impeccable, second visit was let down by clumsy staff. My food each time was out standing, worth a visit 100%, I just hope you don't get wine thrown over you...
