I go there every year since 6 years. It has a nice view of the sea and the food is special ☺ They cook fish, meat and a huge variety of Greek specialities ! Try some "Greek salad", "tirolucumades" and obviously "musaka"

Every time we visit Hydra island we go back to Vlichos beach to enjoy Enalion Taverna, just up from the water's edge. Classic Greek food - fresh, plentiful and divine -with a slight twist. Gorgeous service. As my brother-in-law said just before he got up to return to his sun-lounge, 'I am so happy.' Exactly.

The location is really amazing , Enalion in fact means by the sea , and it truly is "pied dans l'eau" . The other nicest point about Enalion is that they serve you tipycal greek food but with a creative twist that represents a valid alternative to the old fashioned tavernas in Hydra Port that are really very much "tourist"...

We loved this place. Cool decor, plenty of seating, great food with large portions, kid friendly and nice staff. We also tried the Marina Taverna where the boats dock and it was terrible with aggressive waiters and bad food - avoid this place and go around the corner to Enalion where you will have a great experience.

We came here to eat lunch and enjoy the beach. Although the prices were a little high, the food tasted great and the portion sizes were huge. It's only a 10 minute (€5) boat ride from Hydra Town, but you can walk.

We went here for Greek Easter dinner, exceeding everyone's expectations. The lamb was amazing and the potatoes I still dream about. Fun atmosphere, highly recommend

If you are on Hydra and on Vlichos beach, don't hesitate to eat here. The food is all so fresh and very tasty. This is not your typical beach bar type food... Lots of fresh seafood, salads, mezes, etc. The cocktails were very fresh and good. The service was friendly and efficient. They happily let my husband take his beer... More

We visited Vlychos beach several times during our two-week stay on Hydra. The first time we tried to eat at Enalion we sat in the restaurant for 10 minutes and no one came near out table, so we left. The second time we walked in it took us ages to get someone to take notice, but, finally we were brought... More

We had a great lunch....amazing fresh grilled sardines and grilled calamari, amongst the best I've had. We walked to Lychos from Hydra port, a lovely walk which is worth doing. The restaurant is just next to a picturesque beach. It is a lovely restaurant with great ambience. Service was friendly and the value was great. Afterwards we had a lovely... More
