The food was very tasteful traditional greek.. the service was great and they weren't the kind of business that is looking only in your pocket. We were just 2 people eating with a baby and they accomodate us on a table for 6 with a view.. (lunch busy time) instead of pretending that they have reservations in order to have... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by our hotel. We took a taxi there and back which is easy. The restaurant with alfresco dining on its terrace is located at the top of a hill with the most spectacular views. Had the most delicious lunch in a rustic interesting setting. Would definitely come again. Drinks at sunset would probably be... More

I really liked this place. I liked the location: high on the hill top, over looking the island of Gyaros. I liked the people: super friendly and I liked the food -a little bit different from your normal Greek fare. We ate Sousanaki salad (I think thast is what it was called), parsley spread, rabbit and chicken with coriander and... More

This taverna is almost at the 'end of the line" at least for cars, at the north end of Syros. The shaded terrace made a pleasant place to eat, and I was made very welcome. My beet salad and meatballs were delicious (and at least twice as large as I could eat).

The location is excellent, you can see the north-west side of the island. You need transportation to get there (by car or taxi, no public bus) and about 20mins from the town center. The food is perfect with a very good service. Very good attraction for miday excursion.

Located at a hilltop in the north part of the island, this wonderful tavern offers excellent food. The view is amazing. You can see the islands of Kea, Giaros and Evia! Watching the sunset from there is breathtaking!

We found this restaurant on a website while planning our trip to Syros. We tried it for lunch and were not at all disappointed; so much so that we returned for dinner. It is place on the edge of the hamlet of St Michalis on the southern end of the island and commands a magnificent view to the West. The... More

Amazing food, amazing salads, amazing rooster. Staff is friendly and wonderful. Can't beat the spectacular view. A must if you are on the island of Syros. Well worth the trip to the north of the island
