Sorry we didn't get it. Start with the positives, the food was overall good, the service excellent (beautifully laid out tables with candles and flowers, thanks to our waitress who meticulously works on setting these out so well each day, we know as we watched from our room each day)

But, it's a row of tables by a poolside. No feeling of any atmosphere apart from as we had the owner sitting virtually at the end of our table yammering away very loud on his mobile. We did notice on other evenings he even brings his mates along to all have a good smoke as well at various tables that adjoin the dining tables. There's no need to sit where he does and spoilt what was our most expensive eating experience of the holiday. There's so many really good eateries with a lot better view, sorry, we just didn't get it!!

I went here with my wife and daughter for what we hoped would be a special meal. We sat in a lovely setting, outside by the swimming pool. The restaurant wasn't very busy, the service was quite attentive to begin with. We ordered our drinks, the wine we chose was very nice and then we ordered our food. We then waited and waited nearly 30 minutes for our starters. Food presentation was good, tasted ok, but all 3 starters we agreed were not very hot. I can only assume they had been left standing before being served. I had ordered fillet steak with pepper sauce for main course, I must say I have had better supermarket steak! Not sure it was even fillet steak as it was quite tough to chew. Unfortunately during our main course it started raining, so we moved ourselves to an indoor table, no waiters to be seen to give a hand with moving our plates and drinks! We were all disappointed with our meals and so didn't bother with desserts. I would not recommend this restaurant at all, there are many, many better ones in the town.

We ate at this restaurant on our last night in Skiathos and our only regret was that we hadn't discovered it earlier! It was definitely the most enjoyable meal we had during the week, and was in a beautiful setting and with excellent service by lovely friendly staff. We would reiterate all the positive comments from previous reviewers and would 100% recommend to anyone dining out in Skiathos town. Overall excellent value for money, high quality food and excellent wines.

The dining at this restaurant is 5 star in terms of the food, service and ambience. The menu is varied and provides real choice with freshness of product, cooked to perfection and presented beautifully on the plate. The wine list is also very impressive and if your wine knowledge is basic be guided by the restaurant staff, their recommendations are very good. What better place to dine than next to a swimming pool in the warm air of a mellow Greek evening.
