The dinner was fine, as we had 5 main dishes plus a Greek salad. Two beers and a bottle of water. 100 euro!!! Too much. 9 euro for a small size Greek salad?? 17 euro for a simple risotto? Unacceptable. This is just a taverna,...More

We went for dinner and had a great time. We chose one starter and three main dishes and everything was tasty. Do try the saganaki (fried cheese crusted with nuts) and fig jam.

The food was bland, huge portions but not very tasty at all. The kitchen could use a lesson or two in how to spice the food.

Been the best restaurant in Ios throughout 70ties and 80ties - it became again a wonderful place to eat. I'd travel far for the kind of meatsoup they create - or for the octopus... Nicely situated and a place to recommend.
