We ate here at night after sundown. The tables are set on a patio right across from the port. The views of the boats and the island at night are stunning and the atmosphere at the restaurant is fabulous. We had octopus and seasonal "white fish" (sardines) - both were great. The food is great, but the setting is spectacular.

We went there during sailing trip over Cyclades. Place is nice, atmosphere too, but something about food...Encouraged by the restaurant name, we oredered marinated and grilled octopus. So, marinated was not bad but this only what I can say - not bad and as a mian course there is about 100g:) but the grilled one, this was the worst octopus... More

We ate twice at The Octopus Tree during our two week stay in Ios and loved the place. Both times we were part of a group of friends so we ordered a selection of starters and mains to share and it worked perfectly. My favourite was the fried cheese starter (can't remember the greek name). My husband loved the Greek... More

Great views, fresh fish, very popular, reasonable pricing. Worth booking as can get full. Service a little tired at the end of the season.

Food here is great, don't order too much though 3-4 dishes will be more than enough for two of you. The restaurant is right on the marina so view is great. If it's busy ask the waiter to set you up a table by the edge and they will. The portions are massive for traditional tapas but all food is... More

Great little restaurant by the port, super cheap and beautiful location. Food was great, recommend to book or get in early as it was quite busy. We were a group of 6 and were seated right away, but 15 minutes later the restaurant was full.

Thank Simon C
