We stayed for a week in Thassos and we ate there almost daily. Food is fresh and probably the best in the area. The people are very nice and always smiling. I totally recommend it.

This is a place with a nice (but not perfect) view and friendly staff, but way too expensive for the food it offers. We went there by recommendation, knew about their prices, and were truly disappointed by the quality of our meals. We ate fresh dorada and mousaka. The fish was indeed fresh, but dried in the grill, mousaka mostly... More

We went there to have some fresh fish so we had to wait and that wasn't a problem. Bill was! Way to expensive! We've been going to different restaurants in the Sitonija and this one completely knocked us out.

Fresh fish&seafood cooked simply excelent and serve with big smiles. The a la grec soupe is delicious. Saganaki is also a very good choice and has a perfect taste.

This was just a by chance stop, but El Capitan made me feel like a regular guest in minutes. Had a nice chat with him, learned about his family, shared some of his home destilled stuff and had an excellect salad made by his wife. Unfortunately there was no time to try anything else from the menu.

El Capitan has unique atmosphere based mainly on El Capitan himself. Strong man has not only great traditional food but superb local wine. Main thing - he knows the thing, because he is real tanker captain. Man saw the world and knows what good food and hospitality is.

Great place, great food, welcoming staff (especially the owner himself - a former navy captain). I've been coming here since 2013, hope to see el Kapitan again in 2016!

Since it is along the main road we stopped for lunch. They looked at us like we were mad, and said we could eat if we had patience. We had patience but the food we were served was simply terrible, especially the pasta with vegetables. On the other side the check was higher than normal in the area. I would... More
