Don't miss out on Skiathos best Moussaka. Enjoy your meal with the help of excellent staff and great food. Good entrees and great maincourses. The favourites are the moussaka, the baked feta cheese, zucchini chips and the mussels. Enjoy!

*Ahem*

Stupid puns aside, Marmita is everything you could hope to find at a Greek restaurant- fresh ingredients, classic dishes, a lovely, homely atmosphere and equally warm staff.

We had passed the place on our first night (having already eaten at Portobello on the main high street). It had a special charm about it at night, even from the outside, so we knew we had to try it.

The four of us were welcomed the next day by the manager/owner (I think it might be family-run...?), who was one of the friendliest people ever. He was highly knowledgeable of Greek cuisine and was more than happy to deal with any of our needs.

During our time on the island, there were certain similarities between our meals- we always had breads at the start, we always had a Greek salad to share, etc. Well, the bread here was really impressive. Served in what looks like a large cigar box, you get a generous selection of different breads (the brown was especially nice). These come with lentils, olives and a lovely dip I never got the name of. We were so filled up that we were glad we didn't opt for starters.

The mains were pretty fantastic. I think Marmita can boast the best Moussaka on the whole island- we had thought the one at Portobello's was great, but this was a level above. The lamb I had was lovely too, the salad was really nice...it didn't drop a beat at all. The only slight downer was that it was a bit chilly outside, but you can hardly blame the restaurant for that (I imagine it would have been a really special meal in the height of summer).

It was all reasonably priced as well; for four of us, including drinks and a tip that we left, it was only 80 euros. The only reason we didn't go back again was because we wanted to try as many different places as possible while we were in Skiathos. But in hindsight, a strong part of me wishes we'd just gone here a few more times, as it was probably the best restaurant we visited while we were on the island.

Ate here for 4 nights of our 2 week holiday. Tried other restaurants and Marmita won hands down every time.

Food was exceptional, best rabbit, fresh tuna, fish soup I've ever had.

Staff couldn't do enough to make you feel welcome and comfortable and were very observant and efficient.

Complimentary desert.

2 course for 2 with a bottle of wine, water and bread cost us between €50 and €70.

Good idea to book a table as it was full every night even at the end of the season.
