I can only say that in the 30 years I have been coming to Skiathos this has been one of the best restaurant experience I have known. I returned here this year after 2 years away and was delighted that nothing had changed. The food - and I went there with friends on 3 separate occasions- was exceptional. It's truly... More

Friends suggested we try this restaurant and in a week we had four meals there, three dinners and a lunch. It is clean, with well spaced tables and attractive flowers. The view is just wonderful and there is a gentle breeze as it is high up. The young woman in charge greeted us warmly. She has good English and could... More

Just as many different ingredients go into the making of a favourite meal, or dish, so many different elements go into the making of a TRULY enjoyable + memorable dining experience. For us, these include: a warm welcome, great service, friendly hospitality, good value, a fabulous setting with a lovely or spectacular view, charm, plus - naturally - an extensive... More

A little bit off the beaten track (in Kalivia area about 5 minutes from where the ring road spurs off for the Evangelistria monestery) but really we'll worth the effort searching out this taverna. Brilliant views over towards Skopelos and the town of Glossa (lights twinkling in the distance at night). Great views of airplanes landing & taking off over... More

We went to this taverna after reading the amazing reviews but were a little disappointed. We went in the afternoon for a drink with a view to booking for the evening but the staff weren't that friendly and put us off. I'm not sure if the woman was annoyed that we just ordered a drink but it felt weird so... More

Reporting three years after my first review of this restaurant, I was delighted to find that the food quality and ambience remain unchanged. Our welcome from the entire family was warm and friendly. There have been a few changes. Mama Eleni is ably helped in the kitchen by son Andonis, and Daphne, while remaining ever attentive looking after customers at... More

Found this by pure chance driving past Xanemos beach and on up past the rubble. There is a small sign to the right and keep going right until you reach the green taverna. Wonderful view and equally wonderful food (even the chips are great) We were served by the loverly Daphne who was as warm and charming as the weather... More

This is the 6th time we have visited the Taverna in the last 11 days, which says it all. Absolutely everything about the experience is, as the Greek's say, 'telio' - in other words perfect. From the stunning views across to neighbouring Skopelos and Alonissos to the extremely friendly welcome, service and friendship - not to mention the delicious home... More

Just to confirm that everything I have written about this restaurant still applies in 2015. The only thing that changed is that for the first time ever (for us) they had their uncle's fresh goat on offer and it was absolutely superb. If you are not veggie, go for it!
