This is the archetypal Greek taverna offering authentic food of excellent quality, with polite and efficient service, and with an enviable setting on the harbourside with views of the rock of Monemvasia. Staff were particularly accommodating when asked to mix menu items or vary portion size. A two course meal with a half litre of local wine cost around 35... More

As a regular visitor to Monemvasia , I always make a point of having at least one meal there! There will always be fresh fish of the day, which is always prepared excellently,, but also delicious traditional cuisine! I never omit to order the local " tsaitii", or spinach pie! And the dessert is always on the house!

We chose Skorpios on the recommendation of our guide book, and were not disappointed. Our server recommended to me stuffed squash blossoms, just barely still in season, and they were so delicious. My partner was delighted with his swordfish. The panna cotta dessert was perfect!

Having had poor food in our hotel, we set off to find somewhere in Monemvasia. There are a string of similar looking restaurants but this one caught our eye. The lady who ran it spoke excellent English, brought us a short but excellent wine list and gave us recommendations (on both nights....we went back the following night too) The fish... More

We headed for Skorpios on the basis of TripAdvisor and it delivered just what we expected. Nice traditional Greek food, honest staff when it came to what fish was fresh and what not owing to the week's fishing conditions, and a lovely dinner on the harbourside. The spectacle of crabs climbing up the sea wall and exploring at our feet... More

good food, reasonable prices and very polite staff! Worth visiting if you want to eat fish and you want to see the Monemvasia rock from outside.

I find the food offered in Greece in the summer to be simply done and excellent generally, but Skorpios takes it to another level. Everything we ordered was best in class with a special mention to the prawn pasta, the fried zucchini balls and the pastitio (the Greek take on lasagne).

We were a group of 6 and order some starters which were very fresh (tzatziki, zucchini and eggplant). We also had good fish and excellent moussaka. But the best was the white wine which is produced by the father's owner, therefore we bought some from them for the rest of our trip (€10 for 3L).
