It was our second day on Ios and a group of us decided to go to unique, I am so glad we did. We were picked up by the Unique mini bus and taken on quite a journey up twisting paths to the top of what felt like a mountain. We were welcomed by the friendly staff and shown to... More

We came to Ios for a family wedding, it was held at Unique, an excellent name, as it is situated half way up a mountain, with stunning views, superb food and amazingly friendly and helpful staff.

Come the first time for the location, then you'll keep coming for the food. Great local plates with a bit of international/creative touch. The owner is a master of friendliness and the picture is complete. Unique, full stop.

A little bit hard to find, we went there the first time because a friend still had been there once! Then we came back two days later! It is simply unique, from the location to the food. The food was superb, the wine very good, the staff gentle, the location breathtaking and very romantic! I've had a great giant souvlaki... More

Most amazing view of Ios, only 10 min drive from Chora. The food is amazing, the owner extremely friendly! Plan to arrive around 7-7:30 to enjoy the spectacular subset view! Definitely a must do in Ios!!!

Go there for the view - best to enjoy the sundowner with a drink. Then go to another restaurant. The service is friendly but the food is at best average.

Perfect setting and real unique views. Bring along Greek style patience and time, as it is a small place with little crew. Recommend BBQ and the choice of starters.... other plates on own risk. Great drinks, freshly prepared. However, as said bring time and don't get stressed :-)

This restaurant is off the beaten track but worth the trip. They will come and pick you up and drop you home again as it is right on top of a mountain. The views are amazing and the food is fantastic. It is owned by two brothers who have a hidden gem of a restaurant. Very reasonably priced and very... More
