It is located on the pedestrian area of Skiathos town. Atmosphere and service were very good and staff was helpful. Food was ok, not excellent but neither terrible. It is a traditional Greek tavern, however dishes were not as traditional as they appeared and this disappointed us, e.g. for moussaka they used a lot of cheese instead of traditional tasty... More

The atmosphere is relaxed, very family friendly, the service and the food is the best we know of at Skiathos (We had about ten vacations there) and we just have to go there for the marwellous lamb dishes!

We visited with 2 little girls tonight. It was a quite nice surprise. Food was excellent, hosts were great. We enjoyed sea food and it was delicious and fresh. Greek salad was very nice as well. Superb.

sounds ridiculous to rave about a greek salad when it's the same basic ingredients everywhere but this was best i've ever had and only 6 euros.It wasn't just an haphazard chunk of feta cheese thrown on top of a pile of tomatoes onions cucumber pepper and olives that you get in many places.It was beautifully presented with a sprinkling of...

So many restaurants in Skiathos, how on earth do you choose ? Not really keen on the free ouzo to start, but each to their own. The bread as an appetiser was really nice. The moussaka was really tasty. My husbands lamb gastro was the best dish he enjoyed on the island in 10 days. The wine list was also... More

Don't get me wrong, its ok, but there are better restaurants. we went quite early... More
