When we first tried to eat at Marmita we couldn't get in as it was so busy. The owner was so apologetic and nice to us we knew we had to try again. We were unable to book as were unsure when we were next coming into town. A few days later we were in town early evening so came to marmita to eat. We were not disappointed. We were immediately greeted and shown to a table in the beautiful courtyard under a tree covered with fairy lights, which came on had way through the meal. I imagine when the natural light is darker it looks even better. We shared squid for starter which was wonderfully crisp on the outside. For mains we had spicy meatballs which were delicately spiced and melted in the mouth. The swordfish ordered by my mum was again very tasty. My daughter had pasta napolitana where the sauce was made from fresh tomatoes and very delicious. The staff were very attentive and clearly enjoyed working here. One thing that was clear was the restaurant employed enough waiting staff to make sure that service levels do not drop. The complimentary puddings were also great...though I didn't get to try the chocolate cake as my daughter demolished it within seconds. I can't wait to come back and try more of the menu! Thank you for a wonderful meal!

Great food using the freshest ingredients.
Passionate owner, attentive staff,
A jewel in a sea of typical tourist, plastic food establishments.
Definately will be back.

We found Marmita by mistake, walking around Skiathos town. It's the kind of place which draws your attention because of the cosy, fancy and alltogether romantic vibe. It is not right in the centre, which actually means that you get more privacy.
The menu is not very long, instead very well balanced between sea food, meat and appetizers, with a modern approach to certain dishes. Even the wine list is very good, a rather rare thing in Greece. Everything we ate was incredible, it is the only place we went back to for the food. On both occasions we received a plate with small desserts which are just amazing. The price of everything is more than decent - we paid around 55 eur with appetizer, main course and bottle of rose wine.
There is a good reason why this restaurant is number one and quite frankly, they don't have a real competition. Make sure to make a reservation if you are hungry and don't want to wait for a table.

Just returned from Skiathos, where we had one of our best meals in Marmita. Wonderful place, gorgeous decor, lots of options on the menu and really really good food. Food is based on greek traditional tastes and recipes but with some twists. Yes, its very crowded and though it took them about 40 minutes to get us a table, if you book in advance, you can avoid that and be served straight away. It is very busy but worth the wait or the arrangements in advance in order to have a meal there while holidaying in Skiathos.
