We were recommended this place by a local... service extremely friendly, setting lovely in the cobbled streets of Skiathos town. The food was such a disappointment though... and more expensive than round the corner! Mixed Grill was inedible... such a shame.

We had eaten here before in the lovely bouganvillea lined streets of Skiathos town, so searched for Maggie and her flyers. She was not hard to find near the Open air cinema. She remembered us from last year and we were soon seated with our free carafe of wine. The food was as delicious and plentiful as we had remembered and Nicos attentive,as always. There is nowhere better in Skiathos town for really good traditional Greek food at a very reasonable price.

We came upon this restaurant by accident whilst wondering around Skiathos Town. We were given a flyer for free wine. We had tzakiki, cheese pies, stuffed tomatoes & meatballs. The portion sizes were really good & we were given a little heart shaped ice cream at the end of the meal. A lot of the locals eat here and it is a very old localised restaurant in the back streets of the town.

Our extended family have eaten here over the past 3 years & never had a bad experience. We visited last week & again were not disappointed. Wonderful welcome, speedy service, quality food. Best of all is the bill - for 7 of us, 2 courses, including wine & beers, 80 Euros!
Just off the main street in town, whether 7pm or 11pm you will get the same welcome.

This is a street restaurant, located in the alleyways.

There was a lady giving out flyers offering a free half litre of wine on Pap Street so we decided to go and see what it was like.

We both had papoutsakia (aubergines stuffed with mince/onion/tomato mixture and topped with a Bechamel sauce - known as 'Little Shoes'), this is one of my favourite dishes and the only place where we saw it on the menu.
We both enjoyed our food.

The amount of bread was very generous and came with black olive tapenade.

The papoutsakia was 7 euro, half litre of white wine 4 euro. It was the cheapest meal we had.

The service was good, the waiter was working his socks off, bless him.
