Having been recommended to try this restaurant, we climbed the steps from town. We were shown to our table by very friendly staff, enjoying a fantastic view with a full moon to boot.!!The food was excellent, very tasty indeed. Well worth the climb....

“Why isn't this restaurant number one?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014 via mobile

This took a bit of finding the first time we we tried it, but absolutely well worth it. It's a bit of a climb up from the port area but wait til you see the views!

Its run by Pam from England, but, i'm sure she'll agree it's the chef who is the star here.

We had two meals and both were amazing. For the first we had baked goats cheese and the salsa prawns for starters and then a couple of steaks, all really tasty, cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. The steak deserves particular praise, perfect medium rare, both of them.

My wife actually wanted the duck dish, however they were out of duck that day, hence the steaks. Hence the second visit! This time we went for the chicken goujons and the blue cheese and chill jelly tart. The goujons were great but the tart? Wow!

The duck was on, much to my wife's delight, and was as amazing as anticipated. I had the squid as an experiment, i.e. let's see what a real chef does with some elastic bands. Talk about tender? Huge and not a hint of rubber!

Needless to say the creme brulee we shared for desert was also perfect.

Although you probably don't need to book, if you want one of the front tables upstairs you might need to. Plus, if you want to get some photos/selfies of the views, try and get there while it's still light.

P.S. This is the number 1 in Skiathos Town!

“Worth the ascent!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

Spectacular views of the port and Skiathos town from the tables on the top terrace adjacent to the railings - recommend you request/book a table in advance as several disappointed ,potential customers turned away due to the restaurant being full. Situated very close to the Clock Tower church -be prepared for a number of steps to negotiate on the way up !!!
A varied, interesting menu - professionally presented food and very well cooked. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and wouldn't hesitate to re- visit . In regards to the staff I cannot understand the negative criticisms in some reviews directed towards the ' blond' waitress - on both occasions we visited she was charming, friendly and only to happy to chat ,very knowledgeably , about the menu and Skiathos itself. The full menu of starters/ main / dessert tray/ wine/water was a little more expensive when compared to our normal evening meal bill but , in our opinion , very much worth the extra expense for a wonderful evening meal.

“Great place once you find it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

Saw the reviews online and fancied coming, the streets are so winding and all over the place that it yo ok a while to find it. Once we found it it looked really beautiful, over looking skiathos town. Food was reasonably priced and a good choice. People that own the restaurant were friendly. Would recommend it to any one- family, couples, groups. Only down fall no signs to say where they are so you could end up walking around in circles.

“So good you'd be mad to miss it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

Our third visit to the restaurant over two holidays, our first being in 2013 and it never fails to be good. The view over the port from its hilltop location is great......there are endless steps to get there but it's definitely worth it. The food and service is exceptional and we thoroughly recommend this restaurant, a must if you are in Skiathos.
So good we are going back on our last night.
