Having eaten food in many restaurants with a beautiful view, only to be disappointed with the food, we were very pleasantly surprised by the food at Ta Kochilia. The service was also excellent and we returned for more as it was so good. 5th generation...More

You can sit here a few metres from the sea and imagine yourself walking up the street of ancient Mochlos, clearly visible on the island opposite. It’s a magical seaside location. This taverna has been here since the 1900s, pre-dating its unbelievable number of competitors....More
