Went here with a large group of friends and while the company was excellent I felt the food didn't live up to the standard I'd expect from such a popular restaurant. The setting (just off the main street and in a tree and flower-filled courtyard under the stars) is beautiful and if the food was better this would be a... More

We've been here 3 years running, and save it for the last night as it is just that little bit more special. Our group of five all chose filet mignon and we each got an excellent steak cooked to our own individual tastes. Good service, lovely wines. We'll be back next year!

6 of us ate here, a variety of dishes, all delicious. Friendly, polite staff, without being over attentive. A pleasant surprise when the bill arrived.

We stumbled on this restaurant as basically we said we will go right then left down the different alleys and eat in the next tarvena, this was it, and we were glad we found it. Only noticed it as the waiters were taking the food across the alley from the kitchen to the tables. Lovely setting in the courtyard, nice... More

Beautiful restaurant. Open courtyard. Would recommend booking a table as very busy. Prawn saganki had their tails on so bit messy to eat. Delicious panacotta. Worth a visit as good quality greek food. Most expensive meal during our week in Skiathos.

The service was faultless, the food was brilliant, the aubergine salad dip is delicious (don't know what the chef does to it) I had the lamb shank cooked in the oven with potatoes and feta, my girlfriend had the prawns sakinyaki (sorry about spelling) and that too was delicious. Worth a visit defiantly.

Traditional Greek food, attentively presented in the restaurant courtyard set behind a side street in town. A good range of choices from the menu, tasty food and excellent service . We have been here before and will come again

Got the salad called Afrodite but was missing some cheese to make it more tasty. Our main courses were veal in red tomato sauce and veal with onions in red sauce (called stifado in Greek cuisine ). Both were delicious. Service was very good and there was complementary desert. Nice armospher, nice dinning indeed!
