We've eaten here many times in the past. It's worth reserving a table on the outside patio/deck although the restaurant interior is very inviting too. Food and wine are of good quality and well priced.

Food and service were very good! Selection of wine fits the food very well and the atmosphere was nice! Generally good value for money, some dishes are a little bit over priced! Will visit again and can suggest this place to others!

Very nice atmosphere for romantic dinner , or family visit. The prices in the menu are reasonable, however when I asked bill, they added something for 2*2 EUR (probably two glasses of water whereas water is free of charge in all island restaurants) and 2+2 Eur in the bottom. The bill was in Greek language and I could understand a... More

From start to finish, our meal was fantastic! My husband got the chicken linguine and I got the rabbit, both were cooked to perfection. Delicious flavouring and beautiful scenery. Service was impeccable. Do yourself a favour and have a bite!

We found this restaurant walking thru the old town of Parikia. It's in an old Venetian house upstairs. Nice patio dining. Food was very tasty and very well presented. The wine list was appropiate and we had chosen a very nice wine which were surprisingly not expensive. The food price was also very reasonable for what is served. Friendly atmosphere... More

The menu is more limited but this was outshone by the quality of there dishes the starters we perfect and the mains a little over seasoned with salt . Dessert best left for a handmade ice-cream shop as the Greeks really don't do fine dining desserts. Overall good we would return

Recommend booking this in advance for an outdoor table. Food is fantastic! Hard to find but if you ask the locals they will gladly help. Would definitely return!

Franca Scala is the only restaurant in Paros which is working during the winter (during weekends for sure). It has a european food style but it offers local specialities too. The balcony is its secret and this restaurant is very special for a romantic dinner in summer. Tasty specialities and warm service.

Interesting restaurant!!! It's in the middle of the exotic alleys of Parikia. Very good food and high quality! It's pricy but hey, so is everything else on the island... We had oven baked chickpeas, mushroom risotto and pork tenderloin with mustard and honey sauce. Everything was delicious... The people who took care of us were so nice and welcoming. Personally...
