Away from the crowds down a backstreet is the Taverna Folia a small family run place. The food is cooked to order and very tasty you can see the chef cooking it.Great value very friendly staff will be back soon. We wish that we had found it earlier.

We were once again in Skiathos and trying to get away from the same-samey harbour front tavernas. A walk around the back streets are always worth while, with tiny homes and eateries tucked away in nooks and crannies. Taverna Folia was nestling under a wide armed plane tree and in the mid day heat was a welcome retreat. The chef... More

Tucked away in one of the many back lanes in Skiathos is this great little restaurant. The food is really well cooked and presented, and fairly priced.The chef cooks the best beef stifado i have ever tasted and the lamb chops are cooked to perfection. Definitely worth finding on your holiday to skiathos.

I didn't expect that this place serves so delicious homemade food, when I was passing streets at Skiathos. I was very suprised how tasty food they could prepare. Also the staff were very pleasent and kind. I will gladly come back there.

We'd eaten here two years ago and were really eager to return and weren't disappointed! Lovely family run restaurant with happy atmosphere and really friendly service. Really recommend the kleftiko (lamb stew) with feta, it was so delicious.

Lovely, authentic family run taverna with a great menu. Set in a pretty cobbled area of the old town, Folia serves wonderful specials, great wine and all with a smile. Unpretentious and great value. What's not to love!

We accidentally found this little restaurant when we were walking around Skiathos town one evening. We felt as if we were eating in the family's back yard. It was a beautiful location and the food was excellent. The olive paste with the bread was the best I have tasted. It was a pleasure to eat here.

It was just a try and we didn't expect that. The food was excellent. The service was really nice. And the cook is perfect. I can not remember if I ever had better Souvlaki then at this beautiful place. I love Greece and I am returning every year and this was one of my best places. We skipped all other... More
