This place is a little off-the-beaten-path - so much so that the car rental/travel agent in the port remarked he wasn't sure "if it was still open". It is about a half and hour drive from the port or Chora, but is well worth the drive (rent an ATV or small car cheaply at the port). The setting of this... More

Fantastic food. The Calamari was awesome, perfectly cooked and so much flavour. My mate had the stuffed zucchini which was great. Could not fault the friendly service and we spoke no Greek what so ever and it wasn't an issue. Also direct views of the beach and very peaceful

We went back again a few days after our first lunch and brought friends. Authentic, friendly and most importantly, amazing food!!! We loved trying dishes not normally on 'tourist' menus such as rabbit and goat, but also enjoyed the lovely salads and seafood. Worth the trip to the other side of Ios.

It is worth the journey. Alonistra is perfectly charming with great views over the ocean but it is the food which makes it special. Everything is fresh and delicious and smells wonderful.

We found this place complete mistake, located just up from the beach with views of the sea. We took some starters and mains, the goat in lemon sauce that I ordered was delicious, the meat falling from the bones, Seemed a hit with the locals Recommended but be careful of the cats

Amazing view. Enjoyed the salad as well as the stuffed tomatoes. These were the best stuffed tomatoes I have ever had in all of my trips to greece! This is looking directly on Psathi beach. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone!
