“Excellent traditional Greek restaurant”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

We have eaten here twice, food is delicious, can recommend lamb kleftico and beef stifado, the staff are very friendly, the music all adds to the ambience, it is nice to hear the traditional music being played by the duo there, it also seems very popular with the Greek people.

“Fantastic, traditional taverna”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

This was the only place on Skiathos that we returned to and the next time we go to Skiathos it will be our regular place to eat. The food is traditional, well cooked, varied menu and the most wonderful welcome from everyone. The atmosphere was the best that we experienced in any tavern and the nightly music only enhanced the experience. I really recommend that you go here and make an evening of it. You'll love it.

The only restaurant we returned to during our week long stay in Skiathos. The staff are friendly and entertaining, the food is wonderful and plentiful and the Greek musical entertainment just set the atmosphere for a great night.

“Wonderful staff, brilliant live music and good food”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Visited twice for food, music and wine and on other occasions for wine and music only. Each time we had a brilliant evening and would have visited more often except for the fact that this was our first visit to Skiathos and so we felt that we ought to try out several different places. This was my favourite though - good food and wonderful vibe - brilliant staff especially Julia who looked after us so well and the best live music with son and father (I think) - the latter has the most beautiful, mellow voice and both play mandolin (I think!) and guitar, respectively, with accomplishment. On both occasions several of the diners got up to dance (as did Julia) and everybody clapped along with the music. We ate gilt-head sea bream (which came with a small salad and potatoes and rice), more mixed salad (without cheese) and grilled green peppers to die for. We drank rose house wine as well as the free glass of white that came when we sat down. We followed this with the most enormous piece of walnut cake drizzled in syrupy sauce. On the second eating occasion we had something very similar - might have been the same fish (not sure) but had house white this time. (There's loads more to choose from including meat cooked in a parcel - it's just that we love fish!) Julia brought us an extra carafe - how kind. Great fresh food and wonderful buzz. They work so hard there and deserve all the good reviews. Would definitely go back (many times!) if back in Skiathos.
