Went here for a meal because of earlier reviews. We didn't realise it was a gourmet restaurant but we decided to try the special menu. The dishes were tiny but very good, each one accompanied with wine white, rose, red then sparkling. We weren't quite sure what were in some of the dishes due to the language difference but tried...

I can't say enough about this restaurant, and we have told a lot of friends about it. I suppose like many of you likely to read this, we hunt around for tips on Trip Advisor, so if you're reading this and you're heading to Skiathos, please take this advice. You MUST dine here 100%. It is expensive and a little... More

We had an unpleasant and humiliating experience at this restaurant. We saw a poster at this restaurant with BBQ night and asked the owner's wife who was at reception if it is a Greek night with Greek music and Greek dancing. She assured us that yes, it certainly is a Greek evening with barbeque grill on the terrace outside, with... More

Ate here 3 times during our stay in koukounaries and was never disappointed, the food is amazing! We were given a wonderful dish to begin each meal and also home made bread rolls and olives in a jar with smoke in the jar! Fantastic! We tried the duck dish, salmon en croute, gyros noodle dish and the beef fillet -... More

What don't you get? Children's menu, choice of starters, wine list that includes beer, burgers, kebabs, condiments on the table. What do you get? Prompt service, high class food beautifully presented, extremely well cared for meals individually cooked, house wine that tastes great, speciality starters of chef's choice, smoked olives with home made bread, and a wonderful dining experience. Absolutely... More

Nothing to complain about this restaurant if we refer to service, style, attention to the customer , dish presentation and courtesy. All was above the average indeed, and for that they have our appreciation, but at the end, the food did not ''wow'' us as expected. The taste of all we got was absolutely usual, the only excitement we got... More

We walked past this restaurant every day for 2 weeks thinking it was too expensive. However after eating the great Greek food of the area for most of the holiday we fancied something different. This was beautiful setting and food. We had a taster menu which was 5 courses and 4 glasses of wine. The food was amazing even a... More

We loved it here , I was a bit sceptical about going here a place so far in from the road but so pleased we did, both courses were very tasty and freshly cooked. This ranked for us the best place we have eaten in Skiathos .

For a starter, the staff are very knowledgeable of the menu items and equally friendly. This a near Michelin quality restaurant with menu items carefully selected to pleasure different tastes. The presentation and flow is just right. The oxe tail and cod fish were out of the world. To top it off, we had live saxophone. My best culinary finding... More
