“En Plo, Wonderful (Darling!)”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We spent our usual holiday in Skiathos Town in June as part of my birthday celebration. We came with a must eat at list of our favourite restaurants. Then we met Yiannis! .
The man is a force of nature!
We were made to feel so welcome on our first night, the food was sooo good, and they made me a birthday cake.....
We ended up eating there 4 times

Plus points
Great food.
I am not going into depth but the Calamari was the best I have ever had anywhere (and I eat a lot of squid), the Aubergine starter was to die for (and I am not that keen on Aubergine). The Stifado was fantastic, really. Annette thought that the chicken slouvaki was the best she had ever had. We had a great chicken dish with a mushroom sauce, they even made a dish not on the menu. The food was great.

Fantastic House Wine.
Served in a very stylish glass (decanter/bottle/jug) call it what you want it looked great. We had the White and Rose, both were cold and very, very moreish.
Sensational Location (and view)
On the sea front before you get to the night club strip. If there is any child left in your soul, get a water side table and feed the fish. If not then you can tut as you watch us.
They have this moveable roof which means that dining under the stars in possible.

Romantic? Only if you think good food with the waves lapping beneath you and maybe the stars above you could be romantic.

Then there is Yiannis. Like the Energiser Bunny. From the second you meet you are lost. He is a real showman, has a great trick of remembering your name and is happy to suggest an ouzo at 0930.
You could say that it is all an act and B.S just to get you to eat in the restaurant, but that is missing the point. Allow it to happen and you will feel you have made a friend, actually you will feel just a little that you are family. Let your self be charmed.

A fabulous restaurant!

“Excellent food & Service”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

En Plo is a fantastic taverna with a beautiful location overlooking Skiathos Town and the boats anchored up in the harbour. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced, the waiter makes you feel very welcome and will go out of his way to make your visit outstanding.

“Our Favourite”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We visited en plo 3 evenings of our 10 day stay in Skiathos and every time we were not dissapointed! Yannis gives a friendly warm welcome, the food is lovely and reasonably priced. Great views of the bay if you can bag a table overlooking the sea. Service is spot on giving you plenty of time if you want it. Do yourself a favour and walk past the overpriced and over egoed SCUNA just a few yards more and you will not regret it! Superb.

“Good value.”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Lovely situation, along the road past the new port at the water's edge, alongside a string of other tavernas. If you can, book ahead to get a table by the sea. The food was standard Greek fare, but well presented and it tasted fine. Very good value and the waiters were terrific - welcoming, efficient and cheerful (and this at the tail-end of the season!). Everyone got an extra free glass of wine at the end of the meal. Recommended.

“Another great visit to En Plo”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Have just returned from 12 days in Skiathos and as we had experienced some superb meals at En Plo when we visited in July we were looking forward to eating there again in September. We were delighted to experience once again excellent service and food. The location is perfect with great views. Thank you Yannis for making us feel so very welcome. Lyn and Geoff
