We stopped by one November evening for a light supper. We both chose veggie pasta dishes. Hers: the home-made ravioli. His the minestra. For both the pasta was cooked perfectly, the portions generous, the flavours delicately combined and utterly delicious. We also had the house red and that too was sublime. The complimentary dessert was fabulous. All of this coupled... More

We had breakfast here twice while on Hydra. The placemat is made up of hidden words - there are supposed to be over 60 Greek Islands named on it - as many times as we have visited Greece, we only found 30. The choices for meals are good - Greek or western - it appears from the people around that... More

We sat there long hours to watch the boats, sip our favourite drinks and play Backgammon (they provide it upon request). Staff is very friendly and the location is great. They have the best wifi on the island and provide charging station. Comes handy when waiting for your boat!

During our stay in Hydra, we came to this cafe daily, and sometimes twice daily. Their coffee is good. I loved that they had brewed coffee or as they refer to it, "filtered" coffee. Their breakfast was terrific! The Greek breakfast for two is HUGE and their waffles are Belgian style. The servers were extremely attentive and we didn't have... More

Excellent value for breakfast - three choices that will fit any morning need and all come with unlimited coffee of ANY kind. this is important because those 4 Euro cappuchinos can add up quickly in the morning. We ate here several times during our stay. Service was excellent and it offered a great view of the port to people watch!... More

Very poor service and over priced. Staff not interested in the customers at all and only interested in their own socializing. You would only go there to wait for the ferry. It has nice sofas otherwise I would have given it one star.

Upon arrival on the lovely island of Hydra, we walked a few feet from the boat dock to an inviting bar/restaurant named Isalos. To combat the afternoon heat, we immediately order a frappe that we found so refreshing combined with service so pleasant that we wound up returning to Isalos daily, sometimes for breakfast, sometimes for a beer and snack...

Very convenient for food before jumping on the ferry. Good coffee but lots of smokers... But that's pretty standard for eating out in Greece! Super helpful with high chairs for our baby. Pizzas are HUGE!!
